Arduino not working with tutorial

I have bought an arduino duemilanove USB version and I am trying the tutorial on vvvv website.

In arduino02 tutorial it asks to upload some ‘hello world’ code to the board. I am trying this but I am getting an error in the arduino ide says:

In function ‘void loop()’:
error: ‘printString’ was not declared in this scope

Anyone know how to fix this? thanks.

Did you: “Select “Arduino Diecimila or Duemilanove w/ ATmega168” or “Arduino Duemilanove w/ ATmega328” from the Tools > Board menu”
(As mentioned here). The Arduino tutorials sure need an update.

hi west, yes I did so that. This is bad news for me. I was hoping to dig straight in and I definitely don’t want to move to another software…

I have spoken with benedikt and he has told me that the tutorial needs updating… Does anyone know how I can learn how to use the duemilanove with vvvv?

Try this for a basic serial printing to the computer. I just tested it on my same board and it works using the serial monitor in the arduino ide. I dont know how to read this data into vvvv yet but I have only had the software for a day or two.


void setup()

Serial.print("Hello World \n");


void loop()


im not sure what to do with this. I think I need a newbie tutorial… :(

hi kitw

Your problems are mostly caused by the arduino software updates , i have codes that work in some version and not in others , my old codes work with versions 10 or 11 , you can either try older versions or rearrange the codes with the new semantics etc .

In my not updated userpage there are some arduino codes anyway that may be helpfull , i,ll be glad to give you a hand , i,m on skype most of the time : colorsoundvj

btw on the 22 june i run a 4 days vvvv-arduino workshop in Bilbao

cheers guys ;D
