Hello to all that read this tread. I have been using ubuntu 9.10 for awhile and decided to move up a couple of notches. Tried ubuntu 13.10 didn't like it, was having trouble with it so I dropped back to ubuntu 12.04. I feel O.K. with it so I well stay with this for a while.
Now my true problem. Got an Arduino from e-Bay, best I can figure it's a clone UNO R3 (1320 Amegaa8a-pu). I am trying to use the Arduino programmer that is in ubuntu 12.04, but I can not get a sketch loaded up on it (UNO). I am sure the arduino is working and came with a simple 1 second on/off blinking program loaded on it.
I have never used the terminal before but I foundly got it to work did some things to get the build in arduino progammer on it. So that is where I stand at this time.I would like to start progamming as I have an ideal on how it is done but I need alot of help to get started........ Thank you for listening to me Pat
