Thanks for the report.
Could you describe a full step-by-step instruction how to reproduce the bug you get caught?
Also, please try to install this package “automatically” with XOD IDE.
To avoid problems with broken workspace, try this on a new workspace or rename the
__packages__ folder in your current workspace (or just delete it, but then you’ll have to reinstall packages).
Here are steps how to install additional packages within XOD IDE:
YOUR_WORKSPACE/__packages__/extra.txt file and put the link to the
package_*_index.json file on the new line (one URL per line)
- Open XOD IDE
- Open Deploy dialog (Deploy -> Upload to Arduino…)
- Click “Update” button, next to the board select
Then you’ll see new boards in the board list with a comment “(Not installed)”.
- Choose one that you are interested in (“ATmega 128 (Not installed)”).
- Click “Upload”
You’ll see a snack bar message that package is missing with “Download & Install” button.
- Click the “Download & Install” button and wait. You can watch the process in the “Deployment” pane in “Installer” tab.
- After you see a message that package installed successfully, try to upload it as usual.
If something went wrong, please copy-paste errors that you get.
Check out for errors here:
- Snack bar error message
- Errors in Deployment pane on “Compiler” or “Uploader” tabs
- Unhandled errors in the developers Inspector, “Console” tab (press “Ctrl+Shift+I” on Windows or “Cmd+Option+I” on MacOS)
