[Scilab-users] Arduino ATOM on Scilab 5.5.2 under Ubuntu 16.04 LTS

Dear Scilab users!

Recently I have installed Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, it has Scilab 5.5.2 in repositories.

I planned to use it with Arduino Uno board, so I tried to install arduino toolbox (ATOMS) with
atomsInstallList: The package arduino is not available.
 !--error 10000

at line      51 of function atomsError called by : 
at line      76 of function atomsInstallList called by : 
at line     233 of function atomsInstall called by : 

so I can't install it.

I can't understand why this toolbox is not available.
It has huge free-software popularization and educational potential. Isn't it?

Someone opened ticket on Forge to indicate this problem. But with no results.
It seems that Scilab-forge is half-dead.
I remember the last discussion about Arduino and Scilab 5.5.2, it solves the problem, but it is not newbie-friendly to download, extract and run ATOM-archive manually.

Please compile this toolbox for Scilab 5.5.2 and make it available as ATOM on all platforms.
Moreover it is not available for Scilab 6 as explained in the new ticket and on ATOMS site.

With best regards,
associate professor at MPEI,
IEEE member,
maintainer of Mathieu functions toolbox for Scilab,
Nikolay Strelkov.
