I have a Anet A8 3D printer sitting next to me, which I would really like to flash.
What I've done is download the latest arduino 1.8.5, open a config file and tried to upload. This didn't work out. The error code is: error: -fno-fat-lto-objects are supported only with linker plugin.
I've read somewhere that it only works with older versions of arduino. So I've downloaded 1.6.3. This didn't work also.
What I did then was the tip posted in this topic:
Tools > Board > Boards Manager... > Arduino AVR Boards(click on it) > select 1.6.11 from the "Select version" menu > Install
After installation completes click the "Close" button
This didn't work also...
I have been looking for the avr-gcc file to delete but I can't find in the c:/users anywhere.
Could someone give me a point in the right direction? That would be great!
