Hello Folks! This week tutorial again we back to Arduino and Raspberry Pi  2, but with one more person “Processing“.For more details about Processing click here.Due to performance and stability of new Raspberry Pi 2,we have attempted an installation of latest Processing for our customers.For installation we need java support and serial library support for interfacing Arduino with Pi 2.Lets see the installation.

Its always better to update and upgrade your system for new installations.

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get upgrade

Installing Oracle Java:

sudo apt-get install oracle-java7-jdk
Download & Install Processing

Go to  Processing.org (Download Section) and get the Linux 32-bit version.

Extract it

tar xvzf processing-2.2.1-linux32.tgz

Now you have to remove the included x86 Java runtime, and replace it with the Raspberry Pi’s armhf one:

rm -rf ~/processing-2.2.1/java

ln -s /usr/lib/jvm/jdk-7-oracle-armhf ~/processing-2.2.1/java

Installation Done,but still you need jSSC(Java Simple Serial Connector)

Download jSSC-2.6.0-Release.zip and extract it:

sudo unzip jSSC-2.6.0-Release.zip

Now overwrite the jssc.jar from the  processing

mv jSSC-2.6.0-Release/jssc.jar ~/processing-2.2.1/modes/java/libraries/serial/library/

Get into your processing directory and type the following command.

sudo ./processing


And type the following program:

import processing.serial.*;
// The serial port
Serial myPort;
// List all the available serial ports
