Install and run Arduino IDE on Raspberry Pi/Raspbian Jessie with PIXEL

This video show how to download, install and run Arduino IDE Linux ARM version (1 JUNE 2017 release), on Raspberry Pi 3 with Raspbian Jessie with PIXEL (2017-04-10 release). The Raspberry Pi connect to a 4" 800x480 HDMI IPS LCD Display, so it display in low resolution.

(All steps run on Raspberry Pi, remotely via VNC Viewer)

- Visit Arduino Software page. Scroll download to HOURLY BUILDS section, click to download Linux ARM version. It's release 1 JUNE 2017 currently.

- Extract the downloaded file.

- Change to the extracted directory.

- Run the install shell script.
$ sudo ./install.sh

- A short-cut will be added in MENU -> Programming -> Arduino IDE

You can also update library and board in the installed Arduino IDE.

Test with a simple program to read/write between Raspberry Pi and Arduino via Serial/USB.

int byteIn;

void setup() {
  // initialize digital pin LED_BUILTIN as an output.
  Serial.print("Program started\n");

// the loop function runs over and over again forever
void loop() {
  if(Serial.available() > 0){
    byteIn = Serial.read();
    if(byteIn == '0'){
      digitalWrite(LED_BUILTIN, LOW);
      Serial.print("LED OFF\n");
    }else if(byteIn == '1'){
      digitalWrite(LED_BUILTIN, HIGH);
      Serial.print("LED ON\n");

Add Arduino core for ESP8266 to Arduino IDE (run on Raspberry Pi/Raspbian Jessie with PIXEL)
