Error compiling for board Arduino/Genuino Uno.

Hi, I am working with a new Arduino Uno. When I am running the Blink Example I get an error regards to compiling. I don't know how to solve the problem. I also tried to re download Arduino IDE to fix the problem but it didn't work. Any help would be great. Thanks

This is my error message:

Arduino: 1.6.8 (Mac OS X), Board: "Arduino/Genuino Uno"

fork/exec /Users/kirtansingh/Library/Arduino15/packages/arduino/tools/avr-gcc/4.8.1-arduino2/bin/avr-g++: no such file or directory
Error compiling for board Arduino/Genuino Uno.

This report would have more information with
"Show verbose output during compilation"
option enabled in File -> Preferences.

Did you get it working? I'm having the same issue.

Good that you used code tags...but you need to provide the good people in here with a little more info.

A bunch of people have had IDE problems, including IDE crashes and bizarre compile errors, when they install a new version of the IDE. At least some of those problems seem to be caused by incompatible executables and preference files that the IDE saves outside the IDE installation directory. Perhaps that is what is causing your particular problem. In such cases it appears that the fix is to delete or rename the old "Arduino15" directory and re-install the new IDE.

On Mac OS X: /Users/(username)/Library/Arduino15 (a.k.a. ~/Library/Arduino15) (Note: The 'Library' folder is greyed out in Finder. The folder can't be opened with a double-click. To browse the contents of 'Library', ctrl-click on it and select "Open in New Tab" from the pop-up menu.)

On Windows delete or rename both: Arduino IDE 1.6.5r5 and previous: C:\Users(username)\AppData\Roaming\Arduino15 Arduino IDE 1.6.6 and later: C:\Users(username)\AppData\Local\Arduino15

On Linux: /home/(username)/.arduino15 (a.k.a. ~/.arduino15) (Note: file/folder names starting with '.' are not normally shown in directory listings. Use 'ls -a' to get a directory listing that includes the hidden files.)
