Bug Description

[needs-packaging] Arduino

The open-source Arduino environment makes it easy to write code and upload it to the mcu i/o board. It runs on Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux. The environment is written in Java and based on Processing, avr-gcc, and other open source software.

I have make a first packaging test in my ppa. It's still quite buggy, but at least it seem to start.

How is the development going? Is it possible to see the package in Jaunty?

Stéphane Brunner has the latest version in his PPA: https://launchpad.net/~stephane-brunner/+archive/arduino

I tried using the 64-bit build: it runs and successfully compiles sketches, but I couldn't get it to upload to my Arduino Nano.

There is a 64-bit version (not packaged) floating around in the Google Code issues page: http://code.google.com/p/arduino/issues/detail?id=4

I a used that to create a deb package for Ubuntu (seems to work just fine for me...).

It's worth noting that the 64-bit Arduino IDE that I just linked to does NOT use the rxtx library found in the Ubuntu repos, but instead includes it's own version.

It might be of interest to anyone packaging the IDE that I've started a package of the bits needed to build any upload sketches without the IDE -- Personally, I don't care for IDEs so wouldn't want to be responsible for maintaining a package containing it, as I wouldn't be eating my own dog food, but I'd welcome anyone that wants to take my package and add the IDE back in -- all I've done is leave the source I didn't need out of the upstream branch of the git repository: http://git.debian.org/?p=collab-maint/arduino.git

My blog post about it is here: http://wiki.hands.com//chezfil/entry/arduino_for_the_java_challenged/
