1. Install the Arduino Software (IDE), this is what you will use to program your Jewelbots.

After you are done with this step, proceed to adding the Jewelbots boards.

a. Windows
b. Mac OS X
c. Linux

Ardunio Software (IDE) is a program that allows you to code your Jewelbot on your computer!


You may not have access to the USB port. You need to be a member of the "dialout" group. Add yourself via the command prompt.

ONLY tested for Ubuntu 16.04 LTS - should possibly work for recent Ubuntu versions though.

a. First check if you are a member of that group:
groups ${USER}
This will list all the groups you belong to.
b. If you don't belong to the dialout group then add yourself to it, for example:
sudo gpasswd --add ${USER} dialout
c. You then need to resart your computer again for it to be effective.
