An Arduino Presentation?
Well, no, I don't know how to do those. But being able to do an Arduino project using my HDTV's 22-inch LED TV screen is like I'm preparing for a classroom presentation of Arduino. As you can see, I am running Arduino 1.0.5 in my . Newbies to Raspberry Pi will immediate say "Installing Arduino is EASY", but forgot to know that Raspberry Pi's repository still has arduino_1.0.1+dfsg-7_all.deb (dated October 3, 2012). Well, based on instructions from another site, I wrote another BASH script to simplify installation of Arduino 1.0.1, upgrade it to 1.0.5, and then install my preferred theme.txt file:
#!/bin/bash # Based on the following # http://tech.cyborg5.com/2013/05/30/irlib-tutorial-part-3d-installing-the-arduino-ide-on-a-raspberry-pi/ # sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get -y install arduino wget -c http://arduino.googlecode.com/files/arduino-1.0.5-linux32.tgz tar zxvf arduino-1.0.5-linux32.tgz cd arduino-1.0.5 rm -rfv hardware/tools sudo cp -ruv lib /usr/share/arduino sudo cp -ruv libraries /usr/share/arduino sudo cp -ruv tools /usr/share/arduino sudo cp -ruv hardware /usr/share/arduino sudo cp -ruv examples /usr/share/doc/arduino-core sudo cp -ruv reference /usr/share/doc/arduino-core cd .. sudo cp -v ./theme.txt /usr/share/arduino/lib/theme rm -rfv arduino-1.0.5
Those that don't have their own theme.txt file in the same file will get an error, but you will get Arduino 1.0.5.
My Preferences Modifications...
Using nano, I modified the ~/.arduino/preferences.txt file with the following:
editor.font=Monospaced,plain,18 editor.window.height.default=700 editor.window.width.default=900
My Birthday Wish
My birthday in May 2014 is just around the corner and I wish I can have the . I think I can program that from my Raspberry Pi. I'm thinking, I could probably try having tutor sessions with that configuration. But, that's only a wish; I don't have money for that.
Thanks for Reading!
Actually, I put Arduino IDE on my Raspberry Pi because my primary computer, the Compaq Presario M2000 laptop is now on death row, and my netbooks have small screens. Thanks for Reading and Have a Nice Day!
