Trinket Support On Linux

No Comments

The Trinket (Adafruit’s Trinket) can be supported on Linux using the Arduino IDE 1.0.5 in only a few steps.

  1. Download this archive: TrinketHardwareSupport
  2. Install the Arduino IDE. It is assumed below that the main directory is arduino-1.0.5.
  3. Replace the current avrdude.conf in arduino-1.0.5/hardware/tools with the one in the downloaded in the archive. It is recommended that you make a backup of the current avrdude.conf file.
  4. Open a terminal window and run the Arduino IDE as root. You can issue the following command as long as the current directory is the Arduino directory where you installed it (arduino-1.0.5).

    sudo ./arduino

  5. Quit the Arduino IDE
  6. A directory called sketchbook should have been created in /root.
  7. Copy the directory hardware from the downloaded archive in /root/sketchbook.
  8. Within the Arduino IDE, from the Tools/Board menu item, select Adafruit Trinket 8 MHz
  9. Within the Arduino IDE, from the Tools/Programmer menu item, select USBtinyISP

A simple test can be done assuming that the Trinket is plugged on the PC.

  1. From File/Examples/01.Basics, select Blink
  2. Change value of the global variable led to 1.
  3. Upload the sketch to the Trinket
  4. The red led on the Trinket should be blinking.
