I'm interested in getting the mCookie working in Linux — specifically, in Fedora 23. The Arduino IDE (version 1.6.4) is already available. I'm very familiar with Linux, fine with C, and completely new to Arduino.
The tutorials for Windows or Mac describe installing a customized version of the IDE along with drivers. Do I need special drivers on Linux? On the projects' GitHub site, I found the examples and a directory called 'avr' which has promising subdirectories like "bootloaders" and "libraries", along with files
Can I download this stuff and add it to the existing "system" arduino package somehow? How, and what will I need?
