Arduino Setup

1. Libraries and Boards. Many people install the libraries and 3rd party hardware support in the wrong place on their hard disks.

  • libraries should be installed in the Arduino "sketch" folder, and not in the IDE folder, as per the following page: How to Install a Library. You should create a new folder named "..\Arduino\libraries". That page is linked off of this page: Getting Started with Arduino.

    This way, the libraries and board support will automatically be found when new versions if the Arduino IDE are installed.

  • similarly, support files for Arduino board types, other than the standard boards, should be located in a new folder named "..\Arduino\hardware".

  • also, info on writing a library.
