Adding libraries to arduino on ubuntu

By | 17/04/2012

I encountered a problem while trying to execute my PING + iButton program on Ubuntu since I couldn’t find where the OneWire library should be placed. Long story short after googling around the net I found that when you install arduino through apt it creates a “sketchbook” folder in your home folder. So I first navigated to /home/’username’/sketchbook/ and created a folder named libraries and copied the unzipped OneWire folder in libraries and restarted arduino. ( /home/’username’/sketchbook/libraries/OneWire/ )
