Whoopee! A blinking LED!

I just got my Arduino today and set up was pretty easy. My box is running Ubuntu Feisty.
  • Download arudino-0009.tgz and extract it.
  • Install avrdude, avr-libc, binutils-avr, gcc-avr, and uisp.
  • Execute arduino-0009/arduino.
Java was already set up in my case and I'm pretty sure not all of those avr related packages are necessary. But, it worked for me :)

Update: I just discovered the Arduino Playground which has some nice articles on how to set up your Arduino on different platforms.

  1. Yeah... you probably don't need uisp. I quit using it a while back when a firmware update for my eval board broke it. I've been using avrdude ever since.
