Installing Arduino + Digispark on Linux Mint18

This was a little challenge. Where would we be without Google.

The advice on the Digistump website did NOT work.

1. Install the Arduino environment.

2. Install Digistump additional hardware

3. Per,106.msg106.html#msg106

Create a file named /etc/udev/rules.d/digispark.rules with the following line in it:

SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ATTR{idVendor}=="16d0", ATTR{idProduct}=="0753", MODE="0660", GROUP="dialout"

4. Add permission for dialout so other Arduino boards will work.

sudo usermod -a -G dialout <username

where <username> is your linux user name. You will need to log out and log in again for this change to take effect.

Note: To reload the udev rules use: 
sudo udevadm control --reload-rules
