"Ah yes, it is finally time to make your Arduino do something! We're going to start with the classic hello world! of electronics, a blinking light.

This lesson will basically get you up and running using the Arduino software and uploading a sketch to the Arduino board. Once you've completed this step we can continue to the really exciting stuff, which is when we start writing our own sketches!"

For GNOME users, after you install the Arduino IDE, here's a desktop file & icon to use so you'll get an entry in the Gnome Applications list if it's not there already:

nano /usr/share/applications/arduino.desktop

Code:
[Desktop Entry]
Name=Arduino IDE
Exec=arduino_start_script_full_path
Categories=Development
Type=Application
Terminal=false
Icon=development
