« on: October 25, 2009, 10:40:12 AM »
this process seems to be a pain in the bottom. first off i can't find the ftdi drivers since they arn't in the folder contrary to the readme. has anyone successfully installed the arduino in ubuntu 8.04? if so how do you do it

as far as I remember, you don't need any driver.

Using a virtual box should be the easiest way.

Did you follow the exact instructions found at http://www.arduino.cc/playground/Learning/Linux ? This is all that is required.

If you have the Arduino with the 328 rather than the 168 it wont work on Ubuntu Hardy 8.04 without compiling gcc from source or upgrading your distro, the version of gcc-avr doesn't have support for 328 and because 8.04 is a LTS (Long Term Support) it wont automatically upgrade gcc as it may make it more unstable for someone who is using a particular feature of it.

My advice would be to either upgrade to the latest version (Karmic Koala) or run Karmic or Windows in a virtulisation eg Virtualbox.
