ABOUT TO GIVE UP ON ARDUINO!!!

Alright, i am...this is going to be hard to express cause im so feed up with Arduino, so excuse me. I am new to programming and the whole IDE concept, i bought a maker book on getting started with Galileo, using the Arduino method.

I couldnt even get the light to blink, so i said screw it let me just try eclipse and use C++. Eclipse worked, i got the led to blink, but there are no resources what so ever on how to program Galileo using Eclipse/c++ and all literature i run across online or in the store assumes that you want to learn arduino, and my experience wih arduino is horrible and makes me feel like a idiot, being that i cant even get a light to blink!!!!

Im frustrated, cause doing this with eclipse is nearly impossible because there is no literature or intstruction provided for it! I tried arduino again and got this, undecipherable to me, feedback when i tried to run the blink sketch:...screw i give up, it wont even let me co[y and paste the output!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Silly, its a ton of text which yould take me a half hour to type hear, but it ends saying:

* line 56: /dev/ttyS2: Permission denied

- GUY SERIOUSLY PISSED WITH THE STATE OF THE ART

Hi,

Have you already downloaded the image http://downloadmirror.intel.com/24355/eng/SDCard.1.0.4.tar.bz2 http://downloadmirror.intel.com/24355/eng/SDCard.1.0.4.tar.bz2 ? You need this image in order to use the Arduino IDE. For a more detailed explanation on how to connect your board and what software you need to install and how, take a look at the getting started guide here https://software.intel.com/en-us/iot/library/galileo-getting-started IoT - Intel® Galileo Board Get Started Guide | Intel® Developer Zone .

Once you complete this guide make sure you download the latest Arduino IDE version and select the proper board and COM port. This link may be of interest https://www-ssl.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/boards-and-kits/intel-galileo-boards/000006416.h... SD Card Setup and Sketch Persistent for Boards and Kits .

About Eclipse, take a look at https://software.intel.com/en-us/blinking-an-led-with-eclipse-ide-on-the-intel-edison-board IoT - Blinking an LED using C/C++ | Intel® Developer Zone . This guide has steps and an explanation of everything from install eclipse, blinking a LED to using sensors and more.

Hi Deeznuts,

I think the "Arduino way" is the simplest way to start with, at least for simple projects.

If you think you can try one more... please describe the sequence (as thoroughly as possible) you follow so we can try to help.

Some simple "details":

a) I've used it in almost all Windows versions, not any Linux one, but I know it works too, at least in some of them.

b) In windows, the "best" IDE version would be 1.6.0

c) Before blinking, you should complete some steps as driver installation and COM identification. Anyway, if you describe the steps you follow we'll be (hopefully) able to identify the possible problems.

HTH,

Fernando.
