Arduino in WINE on FreeBSD


Setting up the Arduino IDE to run in WINE on FreeBSD

Required ports:

emulators/wine

Windows environment to run Windows apps on FreeBSD

Download Windows file:

Unzip in ~/.wine/drive_c

Create a link so the FreeBSD serial device is available as the Windows COM port. COM4 is used to avoid conflicts with built-in hardware:

 ln -sf /dev/cuaU0 ~/.wine/dosdevices/com4

Use /dev/cuaU0 for a USB/serial adapter, or /dev/cuau0 for a real serial port.

Add user to dialer group for access to serial port (as root):

 pw usermod myuser -G dialer

To run:

 wine ~/.wine/drive_c/arduino-0021/arduino.exe
