Thread: Arduino 0021 on openSuSE 11.2

  1. #1

    Default Arduino 0021 on openSuSE 11.2

    I installed the arduino package on openSuSE 11.2 using the graphical installer - without any error messages. The program starts but does not include the connection to the mega2560 board (/dev/ttyACM0 which is listed in the /dev directory) in its list of serial port connection options.

    Is there a known solution for this problem?

    With your arduino board plugged in, what output do you get from

    Code:
    dmesg |tail
    I found an Ubuntu thread (may or may not be relevant), which mentioned the rxtx library package. This blog mentions it as well. Maybe you need to install it first.

    A quick search of openSUSE software search, yielded this package.

    Is this on 64bit by any chance? If so, you must remove librxtxSerial.so from the arduino tree so that it will use the system's native version as mentioned here:

    I'm using Arduino 0022 on 64bit openSuse 11.3 with no issues.

    If you have random USB connectivity issues with an Uno (need to unplug/replug several times to successfully load code to the device) or have problems uploading when the Arduino is running code that has the serial port active, try updating the firmware as mentioned here:
