Before you can use the Lithne board, you need to install a customized Arduino Environment; LithneDuino. Currently a Windows Arduino Lithne IDE and a Mac Arduino Lithne IDE exist. When you have extracted the folder on your hard disk you should install the Lithne drivers that can be found in LithneDuino\drivers, after that you can use the Lithne as a regular Arduino.
Unfortunately we currently can’t offer Linux support for the Lithne boards. However, we are always looking for volunteers to expand our framework. Please head over to our Contribute page for more information.
