Apologies for bothering you all with such a basic issue but I'm facing a bit of trouble using SimulIDE with the Arduino UNO board it comes with. Before I describe my issue allow me to mention my system specs:
- Arch Linux 5.18.12-arch1-1
- Arduino 1.8.19 (from the official Arch repos)
- SimulIDE 0.4.15_SR9-1 (from the AUR; I've also tried the official 0.4.15 SimulIDE tarball and the latest March SimulIDE-1.0.0_rc2 release candidate tarball from this website as well.)
The problem I'm having is that when I select an Arduino UNO board and attach an LED to it (pins 12 or 13 and one to ground), I am unable to get it to light up at all. I have tried the following approaches:
- Trying the Blink program in the Arduino IDE and uploading "Bink.ino.hex" as firmware, which gives me no error (so I assume it successfully uploaded) but when running the simulation, doesn't work at all. The LED doesn't light up, with or without a resistor.
- Thinking that maybe it would be more direct if I write up the blink program within SimulIDE, I try to set my Arduino toolchain path to the one I see being used in the Arduino IDE (/usr/share/arduino/) but that doesn't work either: I get "Error resolving FQBN: unknown package arduino" as an error.
I have also tried reinstalling Arduino completely (as recommended here), (and as recommended here), but to no avail. Launching SimulIDE from my terminal also doesn't yield any useful error logging as to why it's failing.
Additionally if I might add, the 1.0.0 RC2 unstable release segfaults on my system when I click on the cog button to access Editor Settings (it happens at any time during program runtime, either after idling for an hour with/without text, a board, even immediately after launching.)
I am required to use SimulIDE as a part of my embedded systems engineering course and being unable to get such a simple program to work is a little disheartening (moreso because I'm certain I've missed something very elementary). Any help here would be greatly appreciated!
As a small aside: the minimalist and legacy design of the forum post section is truly nostalgic!
