Is there a Linux version of the software? Without that, the scope wouldn’t be worth much to me.

After playing around with the Sparkfun Addon files a little more, I think I have found a better solution than using the symbolic link. If I edit the ~/sketchbook/hardware/SF32u4_boards-master/boards.txt file to replace the line:
with the line:
then the build will use the default Arduino IDE cores folder instead of the one from Sparkfun. The advantage of this approach is that it is no longer required for the user to know where the default IDE cores folder is located, and if it changes this change will hopefully automatically find the new location. Also, this method will likely work under Windows as well as Linux.
I suspect that the other board types should be changed as well, i. e.:
I tried using the Pro Micro with the Arduino IDE version 1.0.4, and could not get my sketch to compile correctly. After looking through the IDE source code and the Sparkfun Addon Files, I found that for IDE versions later than 1.0.2, it is best to replace the ~/sketchbook/hardware/SF32u4_boards-master/cores folder with a symbolic link to the real arduino cores folder. On my Debian Linux system that is at
After making that change, my sketch built correctly, and worked just as it had on the Arduino Uno where it has been used in the past.
It appears that some of the changes for IDE version 1.0.2 made the IDE cores folder compatible with the Sparkfun version. After version 1.0.2, other changes in the IDE have made the Sparkfun version incompatible with the rest of the Arduino IDE.
Has any one else had problems getting the Pro Micro to work with IDE version 1.0.3, 1.0.4, or 1.0.5?
No public wish lists :(
