Installing things on Ubuntu

AVR32 GNU Toolchain

Everything has to be done as root, so start with sudo su

For Ubuntu 10.04 only

Add the Ubuntu 9.10 karmic sources temporarily to your sources:

Append the following to /etc/apt/sources.list:

# karmic for AVR32
deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ karmic main restricted universe multiverse
deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ karmic-updates main restricted universe multiverse
deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ karmic-backports main restricted universe multiverse

deb http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu karmic partner

deb http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu karmic-security main restricted universe multiverse

Run: apt-get update

For Ubuntu 9.10 & 10.04

Find out whether you are running a 32bit or 64bit kernel:

Run uname -m, x86_64 means 64bit, otherwise you have a 32bit Linux.

Grab the toolchain zip file:

Download the file and unzip it to a temporary directory. cd to that directory.

Run the following commands:

  1. dpkg -i *
  2. apt-get -f install
  3. dpkg -i *

The first command will issue errors, the second and thirs shouldn't.

Remove the temporary directory with all the .deb files,

For Ubuntu 10.04 only

Remove the part you added to /etc/apt/sources.list and run apt-get update


AVR32 Studio IDE

Download avr32studio-ide-2.5.0.283-linux.gtk.x86.zip

Grab the toolchain zip file:

As root do cd /opt and run:

  • unzip /path/to/avr32studio-ide-*.zip

As your regular user try starting the IDE with /opt/as4e-ide/avr32studio

If the IDE complains about missing JAVA, run as root:

  • apt-get install sun-java6-jre

In case this fails, you might have to uncomment the ubuntu partner repository line in /etc/apt/sources.list run apt-get update and try again.
