Error compiling firmware


(Troy Dahnert) #1

Followed instructions at https://github.com/keyboardio/Kaleidoscope/wiki/Install-Arduino-support-on-Windows
It’s my first time running arduino ide. I downloaded from windows store on a windows 10 machine. According to my understanding of the instructions I did not install usb drivers. Receiving error “board model01 (platform avr, package keyboardio) is unknown” when clicking checkmark to verify. Have retried steps using other version numbers and other ports. Only three com ports are selectable. I have tried all three. Not sure what else to try.

I had the same problem. I downloaded Arduino IDE version 1.6.10 from [https://www.arduino.cc/en/Main/OldSoftwareReleases#previous] , uninstalled the latest IDE (1.8.7), installed the older version, then proceeded from Step 2 of the very link you used. Everything went fine from there. Hope this helps. (real credit goes to my genius brother for solving this one).
