apt-get will load v220.127.116.11 +dfsg-2, which is 8 bit, but not 1.5.5. I even tried su -c 'apt-get install arduino 1.5.5' root It gives some good sounding messages about 1.5.5, but loads the same old version. I just changed over from Win7, & need to get back to work on the DUE. Below is what it says:
su -c 'apt-get install arduino 1.5.5' root Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Note, selecting 'libghc-ghc-events-prof-0.4.0.1-56548' for regex '1.5.5' Note, selecting 'libghc-ghc-events-dev-0.4.0.1-56548' for regex '1.5.5' Note, selecting 'libghc-ghc-events-dev' instead of 'libghc-ghc-events-dev-0.4.0.1-56548' Note, selecting 'libghc-ghc-events-prof' instead of 'libghc-ghc-events-prof-0.4.0.1-56548' libghc-ghc-events-dev is already the newest version.
In the end its the same old package. Synaptic Package ManagerSynaptic Package Manager does not allow me to force a version [Ctrl E] either. I just don't think they have a link to a package that can run DUE.
I downloaded off of arduino.cc, & have v1.5.5 sitting in downloads, I even have it in documents; but I do not know how to lead Linux by the nose to it. [yet].
