So i'm running ubuntu 64 bit.
i have arduino 1.6.5 and followed the wiki instructions on supporting the digispark pro through arduino.
when i try and upload i get the following error

Code: [Select]
Device reports version as: 2.0
Warning: device with unknown new version of Micronucleus detected.
This tool doesn't know how to upload to this new device. Updates may be available.

i had a good google and have tried the following:
I have ensured i am in the dial out group

i read this post which stated it might be a old version of micronucleus
http://digistump.com/board/index.php?topic=1673.0

however when i do the same query i only get
Code: [Select]
./home/bob/.arduino15/packages/digistump/tools/micronucleus
./home/bob/.arduino15/packages/digistump/tools/micronucleus/2.0a4/micronucleus

so i though maybe my one isn't the right one
as per this post https://digistump.com/board/index.php?topic=1693.0
but i tried the micronucleus attatched to that post and that didin't work either

i tried installing the 32 bit version of libusb via this post
http://askubuntu.com/questions/311401/libusb-0-1-so-4-shared-lib-error-in-ubuntu-64-bit-system
but that also didn't help

i've added the udev rules
i've rebooted
i'm out of ideas...
any help would be greatly appreciated.

thanks for the response Ralf!

i tried that command, at the home level, and in the tools folder (i'm fairly new to linux) and as sudo but everytime i get no response

Code: [Select]
bob@Slaptop:~/.arduino15/packages/digistump/tools$ which micronucleus
bob@Slaptop:~/.arduino15/packages/digistump/tools$

i found this post, which seems to agree with your theory, though when i run the suggested fix i don't have an old version
http://digistump.com/board/index.php?topic=1673.0


Code: [Select]
bob@Slaptop:~/.arduino15/packages/digistump/tools$ sudo su
root@Slaptop:/home/bob/.arduino15/packages/digistump/tools# cd /
root@Slaptop:/# find -name "micronucleus"
./home/bob/Downloads/micronucleus
./home/bob/.arduino15/packages/digistump/tools/micronucleus
./home/bob/.arduino15/packages/digistump/tools/micronucleus/2.0a4/micronucleus
./home/bob/.local/share/Trash/files/micronucleus

thanks for the help, i followed your advice but i'm more confused than ever

it says command not found.

Code: [Select]
bob@Slaptop:~/.arduino15/packages/digistump/tools/micronucleus/2.0a4$ micronucleus --help
micronucleus: command not found
bob@Slaptop:~/.arduino15/packages/digistump/tools/micronucleus/2.0a4$ ls
launcher  micronucleus
bob@Slaptop:~/.arduino15/packages/digistump/tools/micronucleus/2.0a4$ micronucleus --help
micronucleus: command not found
bob@Slaptop:~/.arduino15/packages/digistump/tools/micronucleus/2.0a4$ cd micronucleus
bash: cd: micronucleus: Not a directory
bob@Slaptop:~/.arduino15/packages/digistump/tools/micronucleus/2.0a4$

using nautilus i've checked that both launcher and micronuclues are read write for everyone and ticked the box that says allow executing file as program.

thanks for the tip!
sorry for the delay in coming back to you. sick pet.

i don't get that output! so i'm assuming i don't have version 2, i'm going to see if i can get it now

i get this

Code: [Select]
bob@Slaptop:~/.arduino15/packages/digistump/tools/micronucleus/2.0a4$ ./micronucleus --help
usage: micronucleus [--run] [--dump-progress] [--type intel-hex|raw] [--no-ansi] [--timeout integer] [--erase-only] filename

  --type [intel-hex, raw]: Set upload file type to either intel hex or raw
                           bytes (intel hex is default)
          --dump-progress: Output progress data in computer-friendly form
                           for driving GUIs
             --erase-only: Erase the device without programming. Fills the
                           program memory with 0xFFFF. Any files are ignored.
                    --run: Ask bootloader to run the program when finished
                           uploading provided program
                --no-ansi: Don't use ANSI in terminal output
      --timeout [integer]: Timeout after waiting specified number of seconds
                 filename: Path to intel hex or raw data file to upload,
                           or "-" to read from stdin
bob@Slaptop:~/.arduino15/packages/digistump/tools/micronucleus/2.0a4$

so i'll try and get the correct output on the command line then post back my results

ok, as you can see i'm not super good on linux, but this is what i did

i went to the micronucleus site
https://github.com/micronucleus/micronucleus
https://github.com/micronucleus/micronucleus

and i hit download zip (right hand side near the bottom)
then i extracted the zip to a temporary folder.
and using the command shell (?) i navigated to the folder and got it to list it's contents

Code: [Select]
bob@Slaptop:~/Downloads/temp/micronucleus-master/commandline$ ls
49-micronucleus.rules  builds  library  Makefile  micronucleus.c  Readme

then i ran the make command

Code: [Select]
bob@Slaptop:~/Downloads/temp/micronucleus-master/commandline$ make
Building library: micronucleus_lib...
gcc  -L/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu -lusb -Ilibrary -O -g -D LINUX -c library/micronucleus_lib.c
Building library: littleWire_util...
gcc  -L/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu -lusb -Ilibrary -O -g -D LINUX -c library/littleWire_util.c

gcc  -L/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu -lusb -Ilibrary -O -g -D LINUX -o micronucleus micronucleus.c micronucleus_lib.o littleWire_util.o -L/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu -lusb
bob@Slaptop:~/Downloads/temp/micronucleus-master/commandline$

then using nautilus i went to the
home/bob/.arduino15/packages/digistump/tools/micronucleus
folder, and then renamed the current micronucleus as micronucleus.old and pasted in the new micronucleus that the makefile created

now when i run the help i get

Code: [Select]
bob@Slaptop:~/.arduino15/packages/digistump/tools/micronucleus/2.0a4$ ./micronucleus --help
usage: micronucleus [--help] [--run] [--dump-progress] [--fast-mode] [--type intel-hex|raw] [--timeout integer] [--erase-only] filename [--no-ansi]

             --erase-only: Erase the device without programming. Fills the

              --fast-mode: Speed up the timing of micronucleus. Do not use if
                           you encounter USB errors.
                    --run: Ask bootloader to run the program when finished

                 filename: Path to intel hex or raw data file to upload,
                           or "-" to read from stdin

Commandline tool version: 2.0a5


Success!!
in the arduino ide, i try to upload an example

>> Micronucleus done. Thank you!


yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay

Thanks Ralf!

the only thing i can assume is the digistump arduino script pulled the wrong version of micronucleus (maybe version 2 for 32 bit?) then, because i don't understand Make, i grabbed a wrong version of  micruncleus which gave the strange error

for others following along, you'll need to put the udev rules in to get this to work without sudo

Thank you Magnet !

I was meeting exactly the same problem than you and I followed your excellent method to re-compile micronucleus and now it worked perfectly !

I had the same problem with my old Digispark and it also settled the problem !

You know what ?

 ;D :D

Compiling had a problem with a missing dependency:
Code: [Select]
> make
make: libusb-config: Command not found
make: libusb-config: Command not found
Building library: micronucleus_lib...
gcc   -Ilibrary -O -g -D LINUX -c library/micronucleus_lib.c
In file included from library/micronucleus_lib.c:30:0:
library/micronucleus_lib.h:35:80: fatal error: usb.h: No such file or directory
   #include <usb.h>        // this is libusb, see http://libusb.sourceforge.net/
                                                                                ^
compilation terminated.
Makefile:49: recipe for target 'micronucleus_lib' failed
make: *** [micronucleus_lib] Error 1

Per this note: http://askubuntu.com/questions/503928/missing-usb-h-file-what-is-it-where-do-i-get-it
the solution was:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install libusb-dev
That got me a clean compile. Don't know yet if I'm going to get a usable micronucleus or not ...

Can anyone help me??
I don't exactly understand that part : "home/bob/.arduino15/packages/digistump/tools/micronucleus
folder, and then renamed the current micronucleus as micronucleus.old and pasted in the new micronucleus that the makefile created"
Can you explain it to me ??

Welcome to the forum kjubow! ;)

What 'magnets' did was basically:

  • Download/clone the source code for micronucleus from https://github.com/micronucleus/micronucleus
  • Unzip the file, and navigate to the location of the unpacked files in a terminal window
  • Once he was in that folder, ran the 'make' command to compile the micronucleus executable
  • He then copied the resulting executable to his /home/username/.arduino15/packages/digistump/tools/micronucleus directory, renaming the old file first
  • And then tested it to make sure it worked as expected

First thing is first... are you on linux? As this was specific to linux (and a Ubuntu/Debian flavour of linux at that).

And secondly, how familiar with linux are you? (I'm guessing not very if you don't recognise the /home path - but that's ok - just need to know the baseline from which to provide instructions)
