I've already installed the toolchain and avr32program according to my package manager.

I'm able to verify the "avr32program" executable in a terminal window.

media-notebook@media-notebook-laptop:/$ avr32program -V
avr32program 3.1.4
Copyright (C) 2006-2008 Atmel Corporation
media-notebook@media-notebook-laptop:/$ 

I can see the bits installed in my /usr/bin folder

I have tried double clicking on the "avr32program" executable but all I see is a little hard drive activity but no launch.

If I type "avr32program" in a terminal, I see get:

media-notebook@media-notebook-laptop:~$ avr32program
Missing command. Try avr32program -h for help.

Typing "avr32program -h" prints the available options. I've tried "avr32program -gui" but it doesn't do anything.

media-notebook@media-notebook-laptop:~$ avr32program
Missing command. Try avr32program -h for help.
media-notebook@media-notebook-laptop:~$ avr32program -h
This is avr32program 3.1.4
Usage: avr32program [option]...  [command-option]...

OPTIONS
  -h, --help			Display this help and exit.
  -l, --list			Detect and print information about available
				USB programmers.
  -v, --verbose 		Display diagnostic messages.
  -V, --version			Print the version number.
  -c, --comport 		Connect to given serial port. If  is
				'USB', connect to a USB device. If  is
				'USB:serial', the programmer with the given
				serial number will be used. The default is to
				connect to a USB device.
  -x, --xmlpath 	Specify path to XML part description files.
  -p, --programmer 	Specify which kind of programmer to use.
				Can be either jtagicemkii (the default),
				stk600 or avrone.
  -G, --gui			Indicates that program is being called from a
				graphical user interface. Changes progress
				reporting.
  -D, --daisy 
				Specify JTAG daisy-chain parameters.
  --part 		Specify part name, fail unless target matches.
  --no-tool-setup-check		Prevent the programmer from checking its
				setup against the selected part. Not applicable
				to all tools.

COMMANDS

For a list of commands, type "avr32program help commands".
media-notebook@media-notebook-laptop:~$ avr32program --gui
Missing command. Try avr32program -h for help.
media-notebook@media-notebook-laptop:~$ 

Any suggestions from anyone?

avr32program is NOT AVR32 Studio...

Download AVR32 Studio from http://www.atmel.com/dyn/product...

It is a ZIP file, containing an avr32studio directory where you'll find containing the avr32studio executable.

Hi Everyone,

I just wanted to close this thread with my results. It appears that the avr32program listed in the Package Manger is not the same as downloading the IDE version from the Atmel site (as hce describes). I tried to launch the avr32program executable and I received the following error:

A Java Runtime Environment (JRE) or Java Development Kit (JDK) must be available in order to run Avr32studio. No java virtual machine was found after searching the following locations: /home/media-notebook/Desktop/avr32studio/jre/bin/java java in your current PATH

To fix this simply follow the instructions on:

http://www.cyberciti.biz/faq/how...

The instructions are for Ubuntu 7.10 but it worked fine for my Ubuntu Jaunty 9.04.

Thanks again everyone! :D :D
