Installation instructions below. I also updated the GitHub instructions.

Code: Select all

cd ~
git clone https://github.com/Protoneer/RaspberryPi-Arduino-avrdude-rpi.git
cd RaspberryPi-Arduino-avrdude-rpi

Just a few extra notes.

Change config.cfg
VERSION = '1.8.2'

To execute InstallArduino.sh
chmod u+x ./InstallArduino.sh


Then it works :) - I still get an error with autoreset2560 : broken pipe

Thanks for documenting the changes that need to be made in order to get the scripts to run.

I'm also experiencing the same timeout issue with my MegaPi hat. I'm working with a fresh install of the RPI CNC image on a Pi3, I reinstalled the Arduino software using gmoney484's tips.

I was able to get a sketch to upload by pressing the "reset" button on the hat just as the upload started.
