Installing Arduino on Ubuntu 10.04

I fought with installing the Arduino IDE on Ubuntu 10.04 so I though I would write something up on my blog so everyone could use it for reference.

Open Applications -> Accessories -> Terminal

Type "sudo add-apt-repository ppa:arduino-ubuntu-team"

then type "sudo apt-get update"

then open System -> Administration -> Software Sources

Check the following

Community-maintained Open Source software (universe)

Software restricted by copyright or legal issues (multiverse)

then Applications -> Ubuntu Software Center -> Search for “Arduino” Click Install

After That is installed go back into the terminal and run"sudo usermod -aG dialout myuser" NOTE: Replace myuser with your username

You Should be all set to work in the Arduino IDE
