[RESOLVED] avrdude: stk500_recv(): programmer is not responding

Hi,

I have installed Arduino Playground on my laptop (running on Debian Jessie with LXDE inteface) by using:

apt-get install arduino

Then, I launch the IDE (I tried to run it either in a root shell and in a normal shell), I selected the right Board (it was Arduino Uno, but I think Genuino is the same), the right Port. I entered the following code:

void setup(){};
void loop(){};

I clicked on the "upload" button.

Then I get the messages I learned on several topics:

avrdude: stk500_recv(): programmer is not responding

I tried to resolve it by reading the other topics, but I cannot see what to do.

P.S. : I am a Linux beginner

RESOLVED: I just get the cables and components away from my Genuino Uno.

Thanks
