Hi @jbobrow, bellow is the what worked setup for me on my Linux Mint 18.3, feel free to clean it up and use it in future documentation if you so wish.

Step 1: download Arduino IDE from (32bit for 32bit Cpu or 64bit for 64bit CPU)

Step 2: Untar the file into ~/Arduino-X.X.X (Where X.x.x is the version number)

Step 3: Open the terminal and run: ./ USER (Replace USER with your linux username)

Step 4: In the terminal run: sudo service udev restart

Step 5: In the terminal run: sudo udevadm control --reload-rules

Step 6: In the terminal run: sudo nano /etc/udev/rules.d/99-USBtiny.rules, when nano opens type the following: SUBSYSTEM==“usb”, ATTRS{idVendor}==“1781”, ATTRS{idProduct}==“0c9f”, GROUP=“adm”, MODE=“0666”

Then press Control + X followed by y then press enter to save

Step 7: reboot the computer
