    Type command every time?

    I installed Ubuntu 12.10 and suddenly the internet has no answers.

    Trying to run Arduino 1.0.3, apparently it's a shell script. I can run it from terminal with sudo, but not double clicking the script in my home folder, which seems to be what everyone else is able to do. I just want a shortcut!! I keep switching between Gnome and Gnome classic but neither is working for me. Also, why can't I make a launcher or a shortcut in Gnome 3? This whole Ubuntu 12.10 is sealed up tighter than a frog's anus.

    In classic it is possible to create a launcher using the main menu and then drag it to the desktop. In the shell you can add the launcher to favorites on the left side.

    You might have to add executable privilege to the script:

    sudo chmod +x arduino.script
    I have 1.03 installed on another laptop, but I'm too lazy to boot it and find out.

    You could run the script with gksudo arduino.script put inside a launcher icon. I don't think you need sudo to program an arduino, but it's been a few weeks since I last hacked on mine.
