I am using an Apple, Intel iMac desktop computer, OS X 10.8.4, Mountain Lion.

Hello, I am using an Apple, Intel iMac desktop computer, OS X 10.8.4, Mountain Lion. I am using an Arduino Uno r3, and I can not get the ATtiny85 files into my hardware folderol in the tools Menu. I was wondering if it is possible if someone could download the : ATtiny master.zip ( hosted by Github ), from high-low tech,
< http://hlt.media.mit.edu/?p=1695 >. Then unzip the ATiny85 files and email them to me so that I can drag and drop the files into my hardware folder so that they show up in my tools menu. This unzipping is deferent for me on my mac but I can not get my information into tools. I am open to new ideas and help, especially any mac computer users that have used the Arduino Uno, to program a ATtiny. Also I have just bought a Tiny AVR Programer for the same purpose that I did not get any paperwork instructions and can not find any info on the internet or Youtube.

Hello again, I am still pounding sand trying to get the ATiny85 files to show up in my tools menu and sure could use some help from some mac users out there that could maybe save my ship from sinking, it’s on fire and taking on water, help, SOS ! Thanks from Mike, P.S. I’m at the end of my
rope !

The image above of text is what I get in my download, it seems it’s just text not files or sketches. :~

I expanded master.zip into: /Users/john/Documents/Arduino/hardware/tiny

Seems to work fine.

Be sure to re-start the IDE when you add libraries or other configuration files.

Looks like the "Tiny AVR Programmer" works the same as USBTinyISP. Select Tools->Programmers->USBTinyISP, Tools->Burn Bootloader, and File->Upload Using Programmer. (The "Burn Bootloader" step sets the chips configuration fuses).
