I recently got an RPi 2B and tried to install SimpleIDE on it. Everything went ok until I tried to run the welcome.c program. I got a "Can't Load an Empty Board Type" error.
I switched to Project View and saw that the Board Type drop down was empty. Clicking on the "Reload Board List" icon did nothing.
I checked the propeller-load folder in both the download folder and in the opt folder and they both have the different board types cfg files. However, neither has a boards.txt file that is mentioned in the SimpleIDE manual. I tried to create such a file with "activityboard.cfg" in it. I was able to save it to the propeller-load folder in the install folder, but not the opt folder (don't have permission). I'm a Linux nubie and don't know how to copy folders to a folder, much less a protected one.
I am not even sure if the boards.txt folder is the problem or what should actually be in it.
I would appreciate any help.
