I was using Arduino IDE in Windows and have no problem installing Intel Arduino 101 board package, by going to 'Tools', 'Board Manager' and selecting Intel Curie.
But in Linux, I don't see any option for a Board Manager under 'Tools'. There are a list of Arduino boards, but no Arduino 101. I wonder anyone has any similar issue?
Thanks for your interest in the Intel Curie Platform.
This issue seems to be directly related to the Arduino IDE not the Curie module, I would recommend contacting the Arduino community: https://forum.arduino.cc/index.php?board=103.0 Arduino 101 . They'll be able to provide a more accurate response.
Now, that said, I still went and install the Arduino IDE in a computer with Ubuntu and I was able to visualized the Board Manager in the Arduino IDE, please see the image below:
Are you sure you downloaded your correct Operating System (64 bit or 32 bit)?
I will be waiting for your reply, have a nice day!
I am using Ubuntu 64-bit. Arduino IDE version is 126.96.36.199
When I click at 'Tools', 'Board', I don't see any Board Manager for me to look for Arduino 101. I only see a list of some other Arduino boards.
Please can you let me know if you go through the same steps, how did you get to that screen?
I will explain you the steps that I took to install the Arduino IDE in my PC:
1) Downloaded Arduino IDE from this link https://www.arduino.cc/en/Main/Software Arduino - Software , please see the image below:
2) This link downloaded a .tgz file, I extracted it in my Documents, then I accessed this file through the Console using the command cd, then I executed the file install.sh by using the command ./install.sh.
3) After step 2) I had Arduino IDE installed in my Desktop, so I clicked on it and went to Tools/Board/Boards Manager, see the image below:
Hope you find this information useful, have a nice day!
Ok I got it. Somehow the installation at Ubuntu software center made previously gave me a different version which doesn't show the Board Manager.
This one has. Thanks for your help.
