I forgot to include this error message in my previous post yesterday:
" Incorrect IDE installation folder:
Your copy of the IDE is installed in a subfolder of your sketchbook.
Please move the IDE to another folder. "
which appeared after starting Arduino version 1.8.13 on linuxmint20 laptop
It looks like the IDE has to be moved.
Would anyone know how to deal with this problem of how to move the IDE.
I installed Arduino version 1.8.13 on a Linux mint 20 laptop and saw the IDE start
during the installation. Then I closed program and tried to start it again but it crashes
Then I repeated the installation procedure on a second Mint20 laptop and the IDE
crashes on that laptop also.
I decided to try the earlier version 1.6.10 and can't get it to run either.
I remember having similar problems 3 years ago and think I ended up using
an old XP computer, which worked out OK.
Can anyone give me advice on how to get an IDE version running on my LinuxMint 20 64 bit
laptops please. It doesn't have to be fancy, just something that works
Thanks for reading.
