Hi,

I just installed Arduino on Mint -- at least I hope so. I got the following errors at the end, but I'm not sure that they matter.  The IDE opens up OK.  I might not actually use it for a while, but I'd like to know that it's OK.

Thanks,

Silly installer assumes the hicolor directory exists.

It doesn't here on ubuntu:

nigel@E3510:~$ ls -a ~/.local/share/icons/
