rosserial_arduino with Arduino 1.8.3 [closed]

I was going to build the Arduino code on my new installation of Linux Mint 18.1 and ROS Kinetic following the details on the rosserial_arduino wiki page. But the IDE refused to show the new library in the list of examples and, in addition, was unable to find ros.h when attempting to build.

I downloaded Arduino 1.0.6 and that works fine to build the rosserial Arduino code. I don't see any mention of a specific Arduino IDE in the rosserial tutorial.

Has anyone tried building with the latest Arduino IDE, and if so what did you change to get things to build.

Thanks, Burt

Just tested with Arduino 1.8.4, everything is OK.

Maybe you could explain your setup a bit more.

Nothing special. As stated Linux Mint 18.1 with Arduino 1.8.3 I notice that you said that it works fine with Arduino 1.8.4 IDE, so I'll go download, install and test with 1.8.4 perhaps it was something specific with Arduino IDE 1.8.3

Just had a chance to download and test Arduino IDE 1.8.4 and that does work fine with rosserial so must have been something with the 1.8.3 IDE installation, at least on my system.

I must be blind, don't see a mark as solved option. Do I just Close the question to mark as solved? Thanks,

Ah, under the rate of an answer (up and down arrows), there is a "v" mark to mark an answer as a solution, so the question become answered. But in that particular case, I did not answer your response so closing was the best thing to do I think.
