Fortunately, Arduino is very easy to install on your Linux ARM Device in just two steps.
- Install Pi-Apps - the best app installer for Linux ARM Device.
- Use Pi-Apps to install Arduino.
For the best chance of this working, we recommend using the latest LTS of Ubuntu or Debian from your hardware manufacturer.
Arduino will run on either an Ubuntu/Debian ARM32 OS or ARM64 OS.
Pi-Apps is a free tool that makes it incredibly easy to install the most useful programs on your Linux ARM Device with just a few clicks.
Open a terminal and run this command to install Pi-Apps:
wget -qO- https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Botspot/pi-apps/master/install | bash
Feel free to check out the Pi-Apps source code here: https://github.com/Botspot/pi-apps
Now that you have Pi-Apps installed, it is time to install Arduino.
First launch Pi-Apps from your start menu:
Then click on the Programming category.
Now scroll down to find Arduino in the list.
Just click Install and Pi-Apps will install Arduino for you!
