Install Arduino Linux

How to Install Arduino IDE On Ubuntu Linux – Using Linux as the OS in the development of microcontroller electronic devices is the right choice for me.

This article is based on my experience of several times failing to install Arduino Linux. In Linux, we have to do the installation starting from the downloaded extracted folder and set permission using the terminal.

Download Arduino IDE

Download the Arduino file with the tar.xz extension. In this tutorial, I downloaded arduino-1.8.13-linux64 Version.

Download Arduino IDE

Open Terminal

After the download is complete, open Terminal and go to your Download folder using command.

cd Downloads/

Extract tar.xz

We will extract it using the command:

tar -xf arduino-1.8.13-linux64.tar.xz

Move Arduino to /opt

Now we will move the extracted Arduino folder into the /opt folder, using the following command:

sudo mv arduino-1.8.13 /opt/

Then we go into the Arduino folder which is in the /opt folder.

cd /opt/arduino-1.8.13/

(Optional) Show the files in the arduino-1.8.10 folder in the form of a list to view the file using the command:

ls -l

Install the file

Make the file executable using the command:

chmod +x

Install Arduino with the command:

sudo ./

Done. Arduino is installed on your computer.

The following is a list of commands used in the Arduino installation process on Ubuntu Linux.

How to Configure Permission Denied Port

When you upload the code to the Arduino board an error appears like this:

avrdude: ser_open(): can’t open device “/dev/ttyACM0”: Permission denied

How to fix it?

Modify user accounts.

sudo usermod -a -G dialout <username>

For example, my computer username is neon, then write:

sudo usermod -a -G dialout neon

Give permission

Give permission for ports to be read and written using the terminal with two commands:

sudo chmod a+rw /dev/tty<ACM or USB>

For example, if the detected port name is ttyUSB0, then the command is:

sudo chmod a+rw /dev/ttyUSB0

Please log out/Reboot!

If not, this method only works once, not permanently. You must to logout/reboot your computer.
