Need Help please

Hi Friends, I am new to Arduino world.
Any help/guidance will be appreciated.
Thanks in Advance :slight_smile:

OS: Ubuntu 16.04LTS 64 Bits,

Ardunio IDE : Tools-Board-Ardunio/Geuino Uno

Prog : Ardunio ISP

Unable to follow installation of RXTX lib from trouble shoot page.
Power & L- Always ON, RXTX LEDs dont blink
Changed USB cords

Problem uploading to board. See http://www.arduino.cc/en/Guide/Troubleshooting#upload for suggestions.

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

avrdude: stk500_recv(): programmer is not responding

Put that bit in google and see if you can't try some of the things that have been suggested to any of the hundred thousand or so people who posted about that error in the last few days. If you can't solve yours that way then come back and post here and let us know what you have or haven't tried and how it worked.

Thanks for your advise.
I did searched the solutions & went through one that I was able to follow. There where some which I had no clue what to do. Even in the trouble shoot page RXTX stuff for Lunix which I did not know what to do?

So you've got more information than you're giving us? Why you wanna waste our time? Why don't you tell us about the things you've tried or ask questions about the parts you didn't get instead of just posting the error message with no details? Wouldn't that sound like it would be a lot more intelligent?

Sorry my friend @ Delta_G

I want to know how do I implement RXTX patch that is discribed below

"On Linux, the Uno and Mega 2560 show up as devices of the form /dev/ttyACM0. These are not supported by the standard version of the RXTX library that the Arduino software uses for serial communication. The Arduino software download for Linux includes a version of the RXTX library patched to also search for these /dev/ttyACM* devices. There's also an Ubuntu package (for 11.04) which includes support for these devices. If, however, you're using the RXTX package from your distribution, you may need to symlink from /dev/ttyACM0 to /dev/ttyUSB0 (for example) so that the serial port appears in the Arduino software."

I have no idea what that means.

What RXTX library?

I can certainly communicate fine with the Arduino Uno on Linux Mint 18.

Yeah it just works on Ubuntu 16.04. Have you added yourself to dialout group?

I don't understand what you want out of that paragraph you quoted. It says that the IDE comes with the patch already installed. You don't need to do anything unless you are specifically using some RXTX from the package manager instead of from the IDE. Is that what you're doing?

@ Delta_G
I connected the board & trying to run Example of Blink, there I am getting error I posted earlier.

I did add to dialout group.

Does the LED L always stays solid? or it should blink when I run the example of Blink?
Thanks

Resolved the issue.
Appears to be hardware related, works good with new board.
