Arduino IDE Makes a Comeback in Debian GNU/Linux After More Than 7 Years

After more than seven years of absence from the Debian GNU/Linux repositories, the latest version of the open-source and cross-platform Arduino IDE is now once again available for installation thanks to the hard work done by Carsten Schoenert and Rock Storm. While you could get the latest Arduino IDE release from the official website as a binary for 64-bit, 32-bit and ARM (32/64-bit) architectures, installing the Arduino IDE in Debian GNU/Linux is now just a command away. Simply run sudo apt install arduino in a terminal emulator and you’ll have the latest version installed on your Debian PC and ready to hack your Arduino boards.
