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