How to Install Arduino IDE 1.8.2 on Ubuntu 17.04

   Arduino is an open-source prototyping platform based on easy-to-use hardware and software. Arduino boards are able to read inputs - light on a sensor, a finger on a button, or a Twitter message - and turn it into an output - activating a motor, turning on an LED, publishing something online. You can tell your board what to do by sending a set of instructions to the microcontroller on the board.

$ tar -xvf arduino-1.8.2-*.tar.xz

$ sudo mv arduino-1.8.2 /opt

$ cd /opt/arduino-1.8.2/

3. Insert RESOURCE_NAME=arduino-arduinoide on line:10 for linux script or delete RESOURCE_NAME=cc.arduino.arduinoide and in the place of RESOURCE_NAME=arduino-arduinoide on line:9 run below commands

$ gedit

4. Change mode and run install.

$ chmod +x

$ ./
