Steps for First Time Setup

1. Install Development Tools

On Windows, you’ll need Cygwin, a Java JDK, and ant.

In the Cygwin setup configuration select the packages:

  • git — used for version control
  • make, mingw64-x86_64-gcc-g++ — used to build arduino.exe (this will also pull in mingw64-x86_64-gcc-core)
  • perl — use this version, activestate or other distros have trouble
  • unzip, zip — for dealing with archives

Included in the defaults, but make sure:

  • coreutils (or textutils), gzip, tar

Not required but useful:

  • openssh — command line ssh client
  • nano — handy/simple text editor

When the Cygwin setup says it cannot find all packages, clicking «previous» and «next» again will automatically select some additional required packages and often resolves this issue.

Download and install ant. Add the apache-ant-xxx\bin directory to your path. Ensure that the path to the apache-ant-xxx directory does not contain quotes (either ‘ or «) for reasons mentioned here.

Download and install a Java JDK.

Point the JAVA_HOME environment variable to the JDK root directory. An error message that reads «Unable to locate tools.jar. Expected to find it in C:\Program Files\Java\jre6\lib\tools.jar» means you need to set JAVA_HOME to your JDK (not JRE) installation.

When building on a 64 bit version of Windows, you must still use the 32 bit JDK. If you have both the 32 and 64 bit JDK’s installed, ensure JAVA_HOME is set to the 32 bit version.

On Mac OS X (using Homebrew, first brew update ), install:

  • Apple’s Developer Tools
  • git ( brew install git )
  • JDK 8

On Linux, you need the Java SDK, avr-gcc, avr-g++, avr-libc, make, ant, git and unzip.

If your Linux version is Ubuntu 14.04 and later, you can use the above command line. If not, use the info at

You may also need the openjfx library to build version 1.8.8:

Check if present thus:

and install any packages needed, thus:

N.B.: ‘ant’ pulls in the ‘-devel’ version of ‘java-1.8.0-openjdk’ which is expected

2. Build from Source

This grabs the code from GitHub as an anonymous user.

Make sure your git line ending setting autocrlf is set to input or false . With true building will fail. You can see/change this setting with:

(Note: This only pulls the latest commit to make the download faster. The download size of the entire repository is greater than 1GB and might hog all your bandwidth for a long while if your download speed is slow, such as a dialup connection or anything below 8mbps.)

Use the command line:

(Note: cd the path to build folder. Do not copy what is written next to the cd below.)

This will prompt you to enter an Arduino version to build (the latest development version will be listed in the prompt, i.e. 1.8.13) before it starts the build.

If everything went well, you’ll have no errors. (Feel free to make edits of things to include here for common problems.)

(ant run will call build and start )

Each time you make a change, use ant dist to build the thing and ant run to get it up and running.

Updating to the Latest Version

Each time you want to update to latest version from git use:

If new folders have been added, or you’re getting odd errors, use:

The best way to use it is to just make a clean build every time:

If you want to debug the avr core you can put a symlink from your sketchbook to your git folder. This way you can directly commit the changes without copying back and forth.

Build for other platforms

You can do the build for other platforms using:


Install the Arduino Software (IDE) on Linux

This document explains how to install the Arduino Software (IDE) on Linux machines.

Quick Start

The Linux build of the Arduino Software (IDE) comes in different packages depending on your system architecture. There are no specific instructions needed for the different distributions of Linux (e.g. Ubuntu).

Download the Arduino Software (IDE)

Get the latest version from the download page. You can choose between the 32, 64 and ARM versions. It is very important that you choose the right version for your Linux distro. Clicking on the chosen version brings you to the donation page and then you can either open or save the file. Please save it on your computer.

Extract the package

The file is compressed and you have to extract it in a suitable folder, remembering that it will be executed from there.

Run the install script

Open the arduino-1.6.x folder just created by the extraction process and spot the file. Right click on it and choose Run in Terminal from the contextual menu. The installation process will quickly end and you should find a new icon on your desktop.

If you don’t find the option to run the script from the contextual menu, you have to open a Terminal window and move into the arduino-1.6.x folder. Type the command ./ and wait for the process to finish. You should find a new icon on your desktop.

Proceed with board-specific instructions

When the Arduino Software (IDE) is properly installed you can go back to the Getting Started Home and choose your board from the list on the right of the page.

Please Read.

It might happen that when you upload a sketch — after you have selected your board and the serial port -, you get an error Error opening serial port . If you get this error, you need to set serial port permission.

Open Terminal and type:

you will get something like:

crw-rw—- 1 root dialout 188, 0 5 apr 23.01 ttyACM0

The «0» at the end of ACM might be a different number, or multiple entries might be returned. The data we need is «dialout» (is the group owner of the file).

Now we just need to add our user to the group:

sudo usermod -a -G dialout

where is your Linux user name. You will need to log out and log in again for this change to take effect.

This is the procedure to access the serial port from the Arduino Software (IDE) if you get an error

After this procedure, you should be able to proceed normally and upload the sketch to your board or use the Serial Monitor.

Setup Arduino on CentOS 7

Setup Arduino on CentOS 7

Here I will Show you how you can start your Arduino on Linux CentOS 7.

First you need following:

1. Arduino device

2. USB Cable for Arduino

The RXTX that comes with Arduino was modified to support devices of the form /dev/ttyACM*, which are used by the Arduino Uno and Mega 2560 boards (which use an ATmega8U2 instead of an FTDI chip for USB-serial communication)
The RXTX library requires that you specify the serial ports.
Arduino’s (and other USB-serial devices) end up as /dev/ttyUSB# or /dev/ttyACM# .

when you start Arduino IDE first time you may see this error when upload code to device:

error message is: Serial port COM1 not found. Did you select the right one from the Tools > Serial Port menu?

And when you go to select the Serial Port, the option Tools > Serial Port is greyed out

So lets Fix this Error and start your Ardunio on CentOS 7

Plug your arduino, then from terminal:

# chmod o+rwx /run/lock

# chmod o+rwx /var/lock

Now Unplug and plug the Arduino device and Restart arduion IDE.

and you can see now Tools > Serial Port menu is activated.

just take a Quick test with your Device

// Copy this code in your IDE and upload to Micro controller

void setup() <
// initialize digital pin 13 as an output.
pinMode(13, OUTPUT);

// the loop function runs over and over again forever
void loop() <
digitalWrite(13, HIGH); // turn the LED on (HIGH is the voltage level)
delay(1000); // wait for a second
digitalWrite(13, LOW); // turn the LED off by making the voltage LOW
delay(1000); // wait for a second

Hello, very useful note 🙂
In my case i add the line :

to my arduino.rules file. And it’s work for the moment…

Another remark, th command line :
# usermod -a -G dialup rsharma
does not work for me (the group does not exist), i use :
# usermod -a -G dialout rsharma

Write code and upload it to your Arduino-compatible board.

Arduino is an open-source physical computing platform based on a simple I/O board and a development environment that implements the Processing/Wiring language. Arduino can be used to develop stand-alone interactive objects or can be connected to software on your computer (e.g. Flash, Processing and MaxMSP). The boards can be assembled by hand or purchased preassembled at


In order to upload code an arduino board over USB, you need to add your user to the dialout group. Open a terminal window, run the following command and reboot your computer.

> sudo usermod -a -G dialout $USER

Now restart your computer and you’re good to go!

If you have one of the following boards, you need to grant specific permissions to your user for accessing directly the USB. This issue is more detailed [here](

  • Arduino Uno WiFi Rev2, ATMEGA328

For granting this direct access:

«` echo «SUBSYSTEM==»usb», MODE=»0660″, GROUP=»$(id -gn)»» | sudo tee /etc/udev/rules.d/00-usb-permissions.rules udevadm control —reload-rules «`

Python 3 support

This version of Arduino IDE runs in a sandbox for improved security and stability. As a result, it does not have access to the Python libraries on your device.

Python 3 and the serial library are installed inside of the sandbox so they can be used by plugins. If a plugin needs additional Python 3 libraries, you can install them using the arduino.pip command. For example, the following command installs the requests library inside of the sandbox so the Arduino IDE can use it.

> arduino.pip install requests

Python 2 is currently not supported in this package because it reached end of life on January 1st 2020. If you have hardware that requires Python 2 support, please let us know.
