Just received the ArduBerry and tried it out using the Getting started page. I’m really excited to get this puppy running!
All is fine until i try to upload the Blink sketch. My Arduino IDE claims it can’t find the serial port COM1 (strange name for a Linux serial port anyway!).
I chose the Raspberry GPIO to the the port. The Board was set to Uno, which i tried in different settings but to no success.
I see two possible reasons for this, neither of which i have tested (well, three, if you factor in my general incompetence and drive for screwing things up in unexpected ways). Either the PSU is too small. I’ve had Raspies go weird on me before with too puny power supplies. I ran this setup with a small 1A phone charger, which is identical to all the other Pis that work alright. Or then it’s because i installed the Arduino IDE before running the setup script.
So is it either of these perhaps? Too small PSU? Environment should be installed on a “clean” Raspbian setup? Something completely different?
