I am tring to use ShorTie8's new arduino ARM installer on my RPI B+ by copying this into my terminal:


sudo apt-get update -y && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade -y

wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/ShorTie8/Arduino_IDE/master/Arduino_IDE_builder.bash

chmod +x Arduino_IDE_builder.bash

sudo ./Arduino_IDE_builder.bash

sudo Arduino/build/linux/work/./arduino

sudo Arduino/build/linux/work/./install.sh

sudo apt-get install -y mercurial subversion build-essential gperf bison ant texinfo zip automake flex libusb-dev libusb-1.0-0-dev libtinfo-dev pkg-config libwxbase3.0-dev libtools

But Getting The following Error at sudo ./Arduino_IDE_builder.bash

  • echo -e '\n\nConfiguration values\n\n'

Configuration values

  • Stable=1.6.7
  • Update_me=yes
  • Silence_is_Golden=yes
  • echo -e '\n\nSystem check\n\n'

System check

++ date + start_time='Sat 13 Feb 11:12:37 GMT 2016' ++ pwd + Start_Directory=/home/pi ++ pwd + Working_Directory=/home/pi/Arduino/build + echo -e '\n\nChecking for root .. \n'

Instead of manually downloading a file from the github repository, check out the repository properly with git clone 《repository》

  • It is a bash script. How can I edit it without messing up? Feb 13, 2016 at 14:15
  • Pardon? Who said anything about editing anything? Just clone the github repository like you would with any other github repository. Delete your current bash script, you don't want it.
