  1. Thank you both for your answers. I think my question may have been ambiguous. The problems come when I remove the comment slashes from the line, i.e. include the WDT stop line in the compile. As I am new to MSP430's and Energia, I hadn't realised that the IDE makes use of the watchdog timer for it's own purposes.
  2. I'm new to micro-controller programming and am seeking some help. I'm using the MSP-EXP430G2553 Launchpad. Following examples from online contributors I have inserted the following as the first line of code: // WDTCTL = WDTPW + WDTHOLD; // Stop WDT However, when this is enabled it prevents serial monitoring and interrupts from working. I don't know if it is relevant but the uart jumpers are set to HW.
  3. Thank you for your post Frida. As you suggested, I have now tried moving the energia directory to ~/home/$USER but it gives the same result. The icon which energia creates on the desktop is labelled as "Arduino IDE" and, as I say, points to an Arduino file. I looked again at the instructions for installing Energia on Linux and saw that the command line call is "./energia &" . When this runs it puts up anther desktop icon which I edited to point to the energia executable. This does properly load Energia. The original Arduino IDE icon seems to be some sort of Arduino integr
  4. When installing energia on Linux Ubuntu the install runs successfully and produces a desktop icon and a menu item. The problem is that both launchers point to "/home/$USER/Downloads/energia-1.8.7E21/arduino" - but the file "arduino" does not exist in the energia directory so the app will not launch.
