DFU Mode Arduino UNO without soldering



I did these steps after I loaded and "empty" sketch to the board.

Code:
void setup(){}
void loop(){}
-----------------------------------------------------------------
INSTALL THE DFU PROGRAMMER (console commands)
-----------------------------------------------------------------
$ sudo aptitude install dfu-programmer

-----------------------------------------------------------------
DOWNLOAD AND VERIFY THE FIRMWARE (console commands)
-----------------------------------------------------------------
$ wget --no-check-certificate https://github.com/arduino/Arduino/raw/master/hardware/arduino/firmwares/arduino-usbserial/Arduino-usbserial-uno.hex
$ md5sum Arduino-usbserial-uno.hex
8e01ee236e70bbea43f7eb4e11c9688a Arduino-usbserial-uno.hex

-----------------------------------------------------------------
PUT ARDUINO UNO IN DFU MODE (see Picture)
-----------------------------------------------------------------
0) connect your board to the pc
1) insert 2 wires in GND pins according to the picture above
2) hold the "wire 1" on the top left 8u2 ICSP pad (AREF)
3) touch the "wire 2" against the left side of the capacitor below the RX LED (leds will blink)
4) remove the "wire 2" wire
5) remove the "wire 1" wire
NOTE: in step 3, my board actually has 2 capacitors instead of one like displayed in the picture, use the capacitor below the RX LED.

-----------------------------------------------------------------
UPLOAD THE NEW FIRMWARE (console commands)
-----------------------------------------------------------------
$ sudo dfu-programmer at90usb82 erase
$ sudo dfu-programmer at90usb82 flash Arduino-usbserial-uno.hex
$ sudo dfu-programmer at90usb82 reset

-----------------------------------------------------------------
FINAL STEP
-----------------------------------------------------------------
disconnect the board from the pc
reconnect it and you are done

NOTE: when you are done remove dfu-programmer package from Ubuntu since this package require the arduino IDE and some other tools and those versions don't work with Arduino UNO board.

See my previous post on how to install Ubuntu on Yoga Pro 2 for Ubuntu GNOME 16.10.

I think Ubuntu GNOME is the best flavor of Ubuntu if you are running in HiDPI mode 3200x1800. All screen captured images are at HiDPI resolution.
Touch support Ubuntu gnome support for touch screen is pretty good on the desktop shell.
Chrome browser supports touch screen very well and much better than Firefox without any plug-ins.
The windows key on the screen panel works as the windows key on the keyboard.
Screen rotation is supported on the new gnome and disables the keyboard when the yoga is used as a tablet, side lock rotation button works to lock the screen in a certain rotation.

Ubuntu GNOME 17.10

I think Ubuntu GNOME is the best flavor of Ubuntu if you are running in HiDPI mode 3200x1800 with a touchscreen. All screen captured images are at HiDPI resolution.

Since I prefer the standard gnome-session experience, I installed the "gnome-session" package and rebooted the system. And on the cog icon next to the sign in button, select the "GNOME" instead of ''Ubuntu" option before clicking the sign in button.

sudo apt install gnome-session

Touchpad
I increased the speed, enabled "tap to click", "two finger scrooling". and on gnome-tweak enabled click method to "fingers".
Touch support Ubuntu gnome support for touchscreen is pretty good on the desktop.
Chromium browser supports touch screen very well and much better than Firefox without any plug-ins.
