Arduino IDE

The (fast!) Ubuntu-way via ppa (cited from ... thanks!):

You have to add the Ubuntu Make PPA, update the local repository index, install ubuntu-make and run the umake command for installing arduino:

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:ubuntu-desktop/ubuntu-make
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-make
sudo umake ide arduino

Optional, to remove Arduino IDE, do:

umake ide arduino --remove
sudo apt-get remove ubuntu-make
