I just received an order of 3 Seeeduino Lite’s, and I’m having trouble programming them. I’m running Ubuntu 13.04.
I have copied the USBCore.cpp and boards.txt files over the ones in my Arduino-1.0.1 installation.
I have selected “Seeeduino Lite” in the Board section of the Arduino interface, and have selected the /dev/ttyACM0 port.
When I go to upload, there is a brief flickering of RX/TX lights on the Seeeduino Lite but shortly after a while I get this error:
Couldn’t find a Leonardo on the selected port. Check that you have the correct port selected. If it is correct, try pressing the board's reset button after initiating the upload.
I have also tried pressing the reset button as suggested but there is no change.
I have uploaded a video of the failing upload process, in case the particular light flickering is informative (but I can’t post the link yet as I’m a n00b).
Before realising that I probably needed to install the USBCore.cpp and boards.txt files, I did try to upload to it once as if it were a plain Leonardo. Is there any chance that doing that damaged it?
I have plenty of other Arduinos and access to an AVR programmer if I need to reprogram the bootloader or similar.
