A participant in one of my workshops is using the New wonderful Grove Beginner Kit for Arduino. Thank you. I think this will help a lot of teachers to keep track of the components which always get lost. . . !
She is using a Macbook Air circa 2017 13" with OS Catalina 10.15.7.
She’s installed the driver correctly because we can get it to show correctly under the port.
However, when using Arduino 1.8.13, she chooses the board option for Arduino Genuino/UNO and gets an error message when compiling a known blink sketch that says,
“Error for compiling for board Arduino Genuino/Uno.” It also says bad CPU type in Executable.
I am not having the same problem with my Macbook air circa 2015 running Mojave. Can you suggest anything else to try besides what we have done:
redownload arduino ide
switched USB port to second port on Mac
redownload Grove Beginner Kit driver
