I recently bought an Arduino Micro to see what all the fuss was about and I figured I'd use it with Ubuntu on an older Dell Latitude. I was able to install all of the files using some tutorials but I have this problem uploading sketches. After plugging in the board, the green top LED is consistently flashing so it seems to be working, but when I try to upload a sketch I get the following error
Connecting to programmer: .avrdude: Send: . [1b] avrdude: Send: S  avrdude: ser_recv(): programmer is not responding avrdude: butterfly_recv(): programmer is not responding
Any ideas how to fix this? I tried pressing reset during the send as some forums have suggested but it doesnt seem to be working.
sudo dmesg -c; clear. Plug in Arduino, wait a couple seconds, then type
dmesgand copy the output into your question. Also add the output for
lsusbto your question.
dmesgoutput that you get when following above hint.
