Being the glutton for punishment that I am, I decided to try programming the Diecimila on Ubuntu linux. I had gotten things working under winxp.
Error: avrdude: stk500_recv(): programmer is not responding avrdude: stk500_recv(): programmer is not responding
Has anyone gotten Arduino working with this hardware/software? Note: /dev/ttyUSB0 selected. Have tried pressing reset before/during/after programming without effect.
My config: Bare bones board from from Modern device. Ftdi usb to serial cable. Ubuntu 8.04.
I followed the instructions on http://www.arduino.cc/playground/Linux/Ubuntu
Also, see my Ubuntu post also: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=815538&highlight=arduino
