When I tried to install the Arduino IDE 1.8.2 on Linux like the guidance on the Arduino website proposes, the install script returns multiple errors and i got very frustrated. To prevent others from getting in that mood, I will share my solution, which i found, with you. You only have to make little changes in the script and the installation will run flawlessly.
This tutorial is only for version 1.8.2 !
1. Download the Arduino IDE
Go to www.arduino.cc => Software and download the package which fits to your system.
Go to your Downloads directory and right-click on the downloaded arduino-1.8.2-linux64.tar.xz file or whatever your file is called.
Then click extract here and wait until you see two Arduino folders.
3. Open terminal
Go to your Downloads directory with
and delete the compressed file with
sudo rm -r arduino-1.8.2-linux64.tar.gz
Then move your extracted Arduino file into the opt directory with
sudo mv arduino-1.8.2 /opt
Change into /opt directory and into the Arduino folder
edit the install.sh script with
sudo nano install.sh
Search in the script for the line "RESOURCE_NAME=cc.arduino.arduinoide" and change it to "RESOURCE_NAME=arduino-arduinoide".
The result should now look like this:
Now make the script executable with the command
sudo chmod +x install.sh
and execute it with
Now you will not see any errors or bugs for the installation and you have the Arduino IDE flawlessly installed !
