[SOLVED] arduino cant program not responding

I'm trying to prgram an arduino but happen to fail so. I have installed the arduino ide and also everything accoding to:

https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Ar … stallation

My User is in the uucp and the lock group. I can also read out data from other arduinos using cat or the arduino ide internal Serial Monitor.
I can compile the sketch, but up on uploading I get:

avrdude: stk500_recv(): programmer is not responding
avrdude: stk500_getsync() attempt 1 of 10: not in sync: resp=0x00

I know this does mean, communication with the programmer is not possible, but I find absolutely now way to tackle this. Any suggestions how to debug this?

Cheers

Re: [SOLVED] arduino cant program not responding

Do you have another similar board you can try? It might be that the board you are trying to use is broken.

Re: [SOLVED] arduino cant program not responding

I tried already a couple of boards, and besides it works on a windows pc. So I don't think its the hardware.

Re: [SOLVED] arduino cant program not responding

What flavor Arduino is it?  Is it using an independent FTDI chip, or are they using USB straight into the ATMega and implementing the USB serial device there (a la Leonardo Boards)?

Re: [SOLVED] arduino cant program not responding

Did you chose the correct port in "Tools" -> "Port"? Just yesterday I had similar problems, thought my Mega was broken, but overlooked /dev/ttyUSB1, while /dev/ttyUSB0 was selected.

Re: [SOLVED] arduino cant program not responding

I just realized that I never posted the solution. So it turns out, that my Arduino boards are of type micro, but somewhat not really. As they are the cheap china substitutions, instead of Tools > board > Arduino Micro, i have to use Arduino Nano and set the processor to: Atmega328P (Old Bootloader). In particular the Old Bootloader setting was the problem here. After this was correct. Everything started to work.
