We start by downloading the Arduino IDE or Arduino Environment (both short for Integrated Development Environtment), which is a computer program that'll allow us to write code and upload it to an Arduino development board. At the time of this writing, the latest version of the program is (1.6.8).

The program is available for OS X, Linux, and Windows. The download links are availble at:

Jun 30, 2020  This free software for Mac OS X was originally created by cc.arduino. The most frequent installer filenames for the program include:,, and etc. The most popular versions of the software are 1.5, 1.0 and 0.9. The Arduino software (as of 1.0.5) includes support for Keyboard and Mouse profiles, but in this post, I’ll go over how to add  Remote Control and Multimedia Keys  support to your Arduino Leonardo, Micro  or  ATMega32u4 -based Arduino. This guide also reportedly works with the Arduino Due. Sep 03, 2013  A quick tutorial about how to installing Arduino software and how to connect and communicate with your Arduino board so you can start programming it! Setting up the Arduino IDE on Mac OS X. Paragon NTFS for Mac OS X 14.0.332 Final is a software for full read/write access to NTFS partitions under OS X used to eliminate the restrictions between Mac OS X and Windows operating systems and to facilitate the transfer of data for users with an environment with two operating systems. Easy-to-install application Paragon NTFS 14 Free Download adds support for the NTFS file system for Mac.


Once downloaded, installing the Arduino IDE is no different than installing any other program or application on our system.

Double click the zipped file to extract the Arduino app. You can execute it from it's current location, but it is common practice to move it to your Applications folder. The quickest way is to drag and drop it using Finder.


You can download either a Windows installer if you have administrative rights on your system, or a .zip file containing all the necessary files if are unable to install programs.

If you're able to run the Windows installer, you'll be prompted for installing the USB drivers, which are necessary for communicating with the Arduino boards. Select Install from the options.

Once the installation finishes, the program can be accased through the Start menu as it's customary.

If your only option is to download the .zip file, don't worry. Below we explain how to manually install the USB drivers. Make sure you extract the files to a known location. Typically we would create the directory C:Program Files (x86)Arduino and move all the extracted contents there. However, for non-administrator users this may not be possible (any other location like Documents or Downloads works well).

To run the Arduino IDE in this case, just make a note of the location of the files (as a reminder) and double-click the executable arduino.exe.

Arduino Ide Download For Mac


Before installing Arduino on Linux, we'll need to quickly check if we have a 32-bit or 64-bit version of the Operating System. This can be done by opening the Terminal (CTRL+ALT+T on default Ubuntu installations), and entering the command:

If the system is 32-bit, we'll get i686 in the returned string:

whereas a 64-bit system will return:

After downloading the version corresponding to our system and uncompressing it to a known location (e.g., /home/username/Downloads), we can run it by opening a Terminal and entering:
