Not able to upload sketches to standalone arduino on breadboard (with Atmega328 bootloaded with blink LED program). Searched on the internet but there is no solution. Help ?

error : avrdude: stk500_recv(): programmer is not responding avrdude: stk500_getsync() attempt 5 of 10: not in sync: resp=0x00

OS: Ubuntu 14.04 LTS

Make sure the RX, TX pins are not connected to any other circuit when uploading sketches.


Make sure the board selected and port selected are correct. I face this problem many time but they disappear after I remove my other circuit connection and reconnect my arduino board to pc
