The Boards Manager window shows up completely blank for me. Is anyone else having this problem and know of a solution?

I need to docment it, but to get around this I am actually running arduino in a docker container:

`make run` and the thing actually pops up in X for me, I can program and everything.

@bdgackle @NicoHood

I also got the ${version} issue. After some poking around and reading arduino build docs, I got it building nicely. I've never used ant before, so take this with the appropriate grains of salt, but I just replaced this line in the PKGBUILD:

ant clean build

With the following:

ant clean dist -Dversion=${pkgver}

And installing the package did indeed generate the proper version file. My reasoning: Arduino docs ( seem to suggest `dist` for the first build for a new checkout, `build` seems to be for subsequent re-builds. By default `dist` prompts interactively for the version, the `-Dversion` argument provides it programmatically and allows the build to proceed.

@bdgackle I will have a look soon. You can also try to delete the whole src folder and then recompile.

@all I recently applied successful for a TU (trusted user) and will now maintain the arduino package. This means the AUR package will move to community and all the build problems will hopefully gone.

If still any problems like this occur you can contact me via email or write a comment to arduino-git. arduino-bin will disappear then. You will receive an automatic update once arduino is in the community repositories. It might still take a while for this to happen due to holidays etc.

Happy coding :)

I'm getting the same thing as Yamakaky, the version shows up as ${version}. I tried recompiling by redownloading the pkgbuild and rerunning makepkg.

The resulting errors prevent me from building sketches using arduino-mk, though I can still build in the IDE.

This is just a work-around, but manually changing the contents of /usr/share/arduino/lib/version.txt to "1.6.11" got me building again via arduino-mk, for anyone else with the same issue.

@Yamakaky No this is not normal. In my installation its "1.6.11". You should try to rebuild arduino.

/usr/share/arduino/lib/version.txt is set to "${version}", is it normal?

@gdamjan I've fixed the permissions problem upstream:

It will be in the next release of Arduino.

@NicoHood Thanks. :)

@tschertel thanks, that is a really good suggestion :)
