Up to now I have been successfully running Arduino 1.0.5 on my Ubuntu 14.04 pc.
I have just downloaded and unzipped Arduino 1.6 into my home folder. I am able to run it by opening the arduino-1.6.0 folder and double-clicking the “arduino” file in there. When I do this, the application says “Arduino 1.6.0” on the title bar, so that’s good. I can bring up the “blink” example sketch, select board “Nano 3”, processor “atmega328” and port “/dev/ttyUSB0” and upload it to my Nano 3. All works great.
However, 1.6 has not picked up my sketches, or the extra hardware and libraries that I have installed with 1.0.5.
If I click “Arduino” from the Launcher, it is version 1.0.5 that starts up, and my sketches and downloaded hardware and libraries are all there.
How can I get the Luncher to bring up 1.6, and how can I get 1.6 to pick up my sketches, hardware and libraries?
These things all seem to live in my “sketchbook” folder in my home folder.
Please bear in mind I am only an “intermediate” level Ubuntu user!
