The Arduino IDE is not seeing your Arduino board.

Post a link to where you got the board from (so that we can tell what exact variant of board it is) and also what you have done to make sure you have drivers.

Also check what ports are available under Tools->port with the board disconnected and connected.

What do you get from dmesg as a result of plugging the board in?
