Install Arduino Software
The Sanguino uses the Arduino and adds some small modifications to support our particular board.
First, you'll need to install the Arduino software.
If you already have it installed, then skip this step.
Install Sanguino Software
Visit the Sanguino Software download page and download the latest version of the Sanguino software.
Unzip the Sanguino software file. It contains some folders that need to be copied into the Arduino software directory.
For arduino-0018 and newer:
- copy ~/Sanguino to arduino-00xx/hardware/ You should end up with arduino-00xx/hardware/Sanguino/
- copy sanguino-software-1.x/cores/sanguino to arduino-00xx/hardware/cores/sanguino
- copy sanguino-software-1.x/bootloaders/atmega644p to arduino-00xx/hardware/bootloaders/atmega644p
- copy all the folders in sanguino-software-1.x/libraries/ to arduino-00xx/hardware/libraries/ overwriting the existing libraries.
(pre arduino-0018 only)
Open the Arduino file located at arduino-00xx/hardware/boards.txt and append the text from sanguino-software-1.x/boards.txt to the end of the arduino boards.txt file.
Restart (or start) your Arduino host software. From the Tools -> Board menu, select the Sanguino board. You will now be able to use your Sanguino board just as you would a normal Arduino board.
Ubuntu specific instructions (works with 11.04 and 10.04)
Download the file from google code. Export this in the /usr/share/arduino/hardware directory. You need to use the root rights to do this. (By opening terminal and typing
Last but not least change (as root) the file board.txt (at …/Sanguino/board.txt). The line
Debian Specific Instructions
You need to upgrade to a newer version of avr-gcc that supports the new atmega644P chip. There are instructions on how to do this here: blog.coldtobi.de
Gentoo AMD64 Specific Instructions
See http://www.thenautilus.net/HW/makerbot/arduino-on-gentoo/ for one approach.
