I downloaded the zip file
arduino-nightly-linux32.tar.xz from here to my desktop.(YOU MAY NEED 64-bit. Ask your computer what it is: 32-bit or 64-bit):
I double clicked the
arduino-nightly-linux.tar.xz icon and it opened a window that showed the
.tar.xz file. I clicked the the extract button at the top of the window and extracted the contents of the
arduino-nightly-linux.tar.xz archive to my desktop.
Once it was extracted, I could see and open the folder on my desktop (with all my other stuff), but could not run Arduino from there. I opened a terminal (Crtl+Alt+T)…
Note: capitalization matters in the terminal and depends on what YOUR machine calls the files/locations you are using…
cd Desktop and it gave me this prompt:
I Typed on the line after the
$ ls -- I click Enter and it LISTED every file and folder on my desktop.
I could see Arduino-nightly in the list (it was blue for some reason). If you DON'T see it in the list, you are in the WRONG directory and you need to "cd" to the directory it IS IN.
then I typed on the line after Desktop$
cd Arduino-nightly and it gave me this:
after the $ on that line, I typed
but after doing steps mentioned above I programmed my
arduino once after that I closed the application and now I cannot find it. each time when I want to open the arduino application I have to give command in terminal. how to permanantly install it?
