I am using Linux Fedora 20. In order to compile C programs for the Arduino, as described in the book "C Programming with Arduino" by Warwick A Smith, pub by Elektor, I have downloaded and untarred/unzipped "avr8-gnu-toolchain-". That's as far as I can get. Please how do I proceed from this point? Is there anything else I need or should have done?

    What you have there is the compiler. If you want the IDE you should download and install the IDE. – Majenko Mar 8 '16 at 20:42
  • You do not need atmel studio to do C development for the AVR - you can use any text editor or configurable IDE along with a toolchain such as avr-gcc (possibly what you just downloaded). You can even "borrow" the version of avr-gcc (and if you like, also avrdude) installed by the Arduino IDE. – Chris Stratton Mar 8 '16 at 21:24

Atmel Studio is a windows only product. The only way to run it on linux is in a virtual machine running windows.
