Installing arduino (1.0) on slackware (13.37)


Just installed the software for arduino. Thought this might help others if they encounter the same problem.
  1. Found this document http://arduino.cc/playground/Linux/Slackware
  2. Downloaded the relevant packages from slackbuild for 13.37 and compiled them;
  3. As root changed the permissions for /var/lock -
    Code:
    chmod u+rwx,g+rwx,o+rwxt /var/lock
    . This got over this problem
    Quote:
    "please see: How can I use Lock Files with rxtx? in INSTALL check_group_uucp(): error testing lock file creation Error details:Permission deniedcheck_lock_status: No permission to create lock file."
  4. As my id went to kde->Applications->System->User Manager and added the group dialout to my id. I did not have to change the permissions, using udev or otherwise, for /dev/ttyACM0 as adding the group dialout to my id was sufficient. Permissions out of the box were
    Quote:
    crw-rw---- 1 root dialout 166, 0 Feb 28 17:47 ttyACM0
  5. As my id changed this line in ~/.arduino/preferences.txt
    from
    Quote:
    serial.port=COM1
    to
    Quote:
    serial.port=/dev/ttyACM0


That was all. Hope this helps. I'll do an install on my other machine to make sure I've not missed out a step here.

what are you going to do with it?

Hi, I'm a little curious now that you have arduino working what sort of stuff are you going to be doing with some kind of electronic gizmo?

Sound interesting, thanks.

Thanks. I didn't use Slackbuilds for my Arduino compiler+IDE, so the experience could have quite accurately been described as "the great dependency hunt".

Just installed this on -current over the past weekend myself, didn't have any problems following the directions of the Slackware Arduino page. That note after the installation bit is key though.
