Re: [orca-list] Using Arduino IDE with Orca

Hi Raphaël,

Command line procedures also interest me.

After some testing, accessibility is very basic, for example if I want to install ESP32 board support I have never found the "install" button.

Same thing for libraries, all my system lags in Java tables. And it is not because I have a not enough powerful processor or RAM installed (i7-5820K with 32GB RAM).

So as suggested by Florian I tested the actual Beta version based on VS code and managed to install the ESP32 support and the needed lib for my project.

It is not perfect but I compiled something. Command line would stay more accessible, more when seeing the Alt+F1 for accessibility options cannot be used in the editor because Mate use it so we have a old good shortcut conflict...

Finally I found a (not callable clean) solution to make Arduino Java IDE accessible:

1. copy /etc/java-11-jdk/ to <arduino extracted path>/java/lib

2. copy /usr/share/java/java-java-atk-wrapper.jar to <arduino extracted path>/java/lib

3. Copy /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/jni/ <arduino extracted path>/java/lib/amd64

4. Edit to be sure the last line is not commented

5. Edit <arduino extracted path>/arduino and under the line "for LIB in \" add:

"$APPDIR"/java/lib/java-atk-wrapper.jar \

Quotes are important.

6. Enjoy!

As I said, it is tinkering 😁

I have to use Arduino IDE to build this project:

But the IDE is not accessible (Java is so strange with accessibility on Linux).

To build project, I read there is a command line project which can help.

But as my board is an ESP32, I have to install an add-on to the IDE.

has someone dealt with this situation?

I cannot use the IDE at all on Debian 10 with Orca master.

Best regards,
