Can't upload sketch from 0013, or 0014 on PPC Mac

I've been trying to use these new versions on my PPM-based Mac, but I can't seem to upload any sketches to either my Diecimila or Duemilanove (168) oards. I can load a sketch in 0012 and upload it to the board just fine. But, if I then try to upload the same sketch (using the same settings for the board and serial port) using either 0013, or 0014, I get this error:

avrdude: usbdev_open(): did not find any USB device "usb"

Anyone know what I'm doing wrong?


The FTDI drivers are loaded, right? When you do an "ls /dev/tty.*" (notice .) what do you see?

2 of the 3 macs I use for arduino are PPC, so it works in general.


Yes. The FTDI drivers are loaded, and they do work when I upload sketches using Arduino 0012 (and, I've even tried reinstalling them using the installers in the 0013 and 0014 builds.) I also see the ports listed (twice, as always) in the serial port menu drop down. This seems to result from some difference with the 0013 & 0014 builds.


Weird. That message implies that the IDE is trying to upload using a real USB device as opposed to a virtual serial port (which how the Arduino board should behave). Did you edit your boards.txt file or preferences.txt file?

Yup. I trashed the preferences.txt file and let the IDE rebuild it and that solved the problem. I tend to forget that not all the config information is in the downloaded build. Sorry for the false alarm.
