Hello, friends. Among the followers of our site, there are many who like to play with Arduino. So, today you will learn how to install Arduino IDE on Ubuntu 22.04.
What is Arduino?
Arduino is nothing more and nothing less than a board based on a microcontroller, specifically an ATMEL. It is one of the most popular types of boards in the maker world, along with the Raspberry Pi.
We can also say that Arduino is a board based on free hardware that by combining it with software we can create very useful electronic parts.
One of the reasons why Arduino is so important nowadays and is used by many students is because Arduino offers the basis for any other person or company to create their own boards. Sounds good, doesn’t it?
Well, there are different models and prices, but they must be combined with software to be functional. What tool can we work with? Well, with Arduino IDE.
Arduino IDE: The IDE for programming in Arduino
Arduino IDE is a crossplattform application with which we can develop scripts or pieces of software to be used on Arduino.
So, Arduino can be used to develop stand-alone interactive objects or can be connected to software on your computer (e.g. Flash, Processing and MaxMSP).
As a tool, Arduino IDE is complete, and we can use it on our system without limitations. It is quite stable and is lightweight for a full IDE.
In addition to this, Arduino Software (IDE) makes it easy to write code and upload it to the board. This software can be used with any Arduino board.
Let’s go for it.
Install Arduino IDE on Ubuntu 20.04
This application is ideally suited for Linux, but the best thing is that it is in the official Ubuntu 22.04 repositories.
So open a terminal and update the system first
sudo apt update
sudo apt upgrade
Then, install Arduino by running
sudo apt install arduino
Once the process is finished, you will be able to run it from the main menu.
Now you know how to install Arduino IDE and this way you can start playing with this technology and make important creations.
