Iteadmaple v1.0 in Linux Mint 18, Arduino 1.8.0

Post by jrullan » Wed Jan 04, 2017 4:08 am

Ok, I got this working on my laptop with Linux Mint 18 and Arduino IDE 1.8.0. :D

1. First I installed the Arduino SAM Boards (Arduino Due) and SAMD boards (Arduino Zero, M0, etc) from the Boards Manager in the IDE.

2. Downloaded the Arduino_STM32 hardware files from

3. I extracted the files into Arduino/hardware/Arduino_STM32

4. Ran the udev rules installation script in Arduino/hardware/Arduino_STM32/tools/linux64/

5. Restarted the Arduino IDE.

6. The tricky part, select the Maple(Rev3) board and the port /dev/ttyACM0

7. I don't know if this step was neccesary but I installed dfu-utils from repositories:

sudo apt-get install dfu-utils

I don't remember if I did anything else besides this but I already loaded a blinking program.

To load a program:

1. Press the Reset button

2. Quickly press the Boot button while the led is flashing rapidly, and hold for a couple of seconds until the led flashes slower steadily, then release. It should stay flashing slowly.

3. Download the program.
