Download Teensyduino, Version 1.57

Teensyduino is a software add-on for the Arduino software.

Teensyduino Files:Other Files:

Teensyduino 1.57 supports Arduino versions 1.8.5 and 1.8.9 and 1.8.13 and 1.8.15 and 1.8.16 and 1.8.19.
Future versions of Teensyduino will drop support for Arduino 1.8.15
On Windows, the Arduino installer and ZIP are supported, but the Windows store "app" is not.
Windows 10 provides much better USB support than Windows 7, 8 & XP.
On Linux, PJRC tests X86 & AARCH64 on Ubuntu and ARM32 on Raspbian. Other distros may work, but are not supported.

Windows Installation

  1. Download and run Arduino's Windows Installer, for Windows 7 and up.
    Note: The Arduino "Windows app" from the Microsoft Store is incompatible with Teensyduino.
  2. Download and run the Teensyduino installer.
  3. (optional) Check for anti-virus performance problems.

Macintosh Installation

  1. Download Teensyduino "Macintosh Complete Software".
    Note: This download is a complete copy of all software. No separate installer is used.
  2. On first use, you must allow access to your Documents folder.
  3. (optional) If using multiple monitors, uninstall old Java if the software crashes.

Linux Installation

  1. Download the Linux udev rules (link at the top of this page) and copy the file to /etc/udev/rules.d.
    sudo cp 00-teensy.rules /etc/udev/rules.d/
  2. Download and extract one of Arduino's Linux packages.
    Note: Arduino from Linux distro packages is not supported.
  3. Download the corresponding Teensyduino installer.
  4. Run the installer by adding execute permission and then execute it.
    chmod 755 TeensyduinoInstall.linux64

Windows Non-Admin Installation

  1. Download Arduino's Windows ZIP file for non admin install.
  2. Extract the ZIP file, and remember the extracted location.
  3. Download the Teensyduino installer. Save the file, do not run.
  4. Rename TeensyduinoInstall.exe to Teensyduino.exe.
    Note: Removing "Install" from the name causes Windows to treat the installer differently!
  5. Run the renamed Teensyduino installer. You will need to select the extracted Arduino location.
  6. (optional) Check for anti-virus performance problems.

Old Macintosh Installation

  1. Download Arduino 1.8.5 from Arduino's Previous IDE Releases Page.
  2. Move Arduino to Applications.
  3. Run Arduino and confirm running software downloaded from the internet.
    Note: This must be done before installing Teensyduino, to avoid a corrupted install.
  4. Download and run the Teensyduino Installer. It only works on MacOS versions 10.7 to 10.14.

Teensyduino Graphical Installer

The Teensyduino installer adds the necessary support files to Arduino. Your copy of Arduino must be one of the supported versions listed on this first screen.
On Windows, this driver allows to you access the serial device type. This step is not necessary and does not appear on Mac OS-X and Linux. Windows 10 has the proper driver, which is automatically detected.
Select the location where you extracted the Arduino Software. On Windows, the location will default to the location where Arduino's installer places the software.

The Next button will only activate when a supported version of the Arduino Software is found.

If the Next button will not activate, click the "?" button for more information.
Teensyduino can automatically install many libraries that are tested and verified to work with Teensy. Usually it's best to allow the installer to add them all.
The installer will copy all the necessary files into your Arduino Software, when you click the "Install" button.
When installation is finished, you will see this final screen. Just click Done to quit the installer.
When using Arduino, be sure to select Teensy in the Tools > Boards menu. Arduino's File > Examples menu automatically changes to show the libraries and examples for the selected board.

Command Line Install

The Teensyduino installer supports a non-graphical command line install, using "--dir=<directory>" to specify Arduino's location.

For example, the following commands can be used to install Arduino and Teensyduino on a Linux 64 bit x86 system, and compile using the sample makefile for Teensy 4.0.

sudo cp 00-teensy.rules /etc/udev/rules.d/
tar -xf arduino-1.8.15-linux64.tar.xz
chmod 755 TeensyduinoInstall.linux64
./TeensyduinoInstall.linux64 --dir=arduino-1.8.15
cd arduino-1.8.15/hardware/teensy/avr/cores/teensy4

Known Issues

Windows: Windows Defender and many anti-virus programs can dramatically slow down code compilation. A modern PC should take less than 10 seconds to verify simple programs. If Arduino takes 1 minute or longer to verify simple programs, that is a sure sign anti-virus software is slowing you down.

Configuring Windows Defender so that it does not check intermediate Arduino build folders & products (to keep it from slowing down the build).

1) Open Windows Defender
2) Click on "App & browser control"

3) Click on "Exploit protection settings"

4) Click on "Program settings"

5) Click on "Add program to customize" & specifically select "Choose exact file path"

6) Navigate to the location where your Arduino IDE is installed (typically "C:\Program Files (x86)\Arduino"), highlight the "arduino.exe" executable & click "Open"

7) Activate the "Override system settings" checkbox for every option & verify that they are all turned off (make sure to scroll down the list to get everything)

8) Click "Apply" to complete the process.

Special thanks to Mark J Culross (KD5RXT) for contributing these Windows Defender instructions.

Macintosh: Teensyduino requires access to your Documents folder, because Arduino stores installed libraries and boards in Documents/Arduino. If you have disallowed access to Documents, Teensyduino may fail to open. To solve this problem, open System Preferences, click Security & Privacy, and select Files and Folders. Then find Teensyduino on the list of applications which have requested access to your Documents Folder. This box must be checked for Teensyduino to work.

All: Serial + Keyboard + Mouse + Joystick requires Mac OS X Lion, or Windows XP SP3, Vista SP1, or Windows 7, or Linux 2.6.18 or later. Mac Snow Leopard and Windows XP SP2 do not support Serial when combined with other types.

Windows & Linux: When using the Serial Monitor with the USB Keyboard/Mouse option, sometimes a "teensy gateway communication error" can occur. Close and reopen the serial monitor to regain communication.

Windows: You may need to run the Teensyduino installer as administrator for it to install all files. Some anti-virus programs can also interfere with installation and must be temporarily disabled. A Norton AntiVirus Workaround was sent by Carl B.

All: The Upload button can only work if your Teensy is running a previously loaded sketch. If your board can not be rebooted automatically, a message will ask you to press the reset button.

Mac OS X: When you run Arduino after installing Teensyduino, the Leopard's firewall will recognize the program has changed and will ask again if you wish to allow internet connection (Arduino checks for updates). Teensyduino does not "phone home", but Arduino does! TODO: is this still an issue with recent versions of Arduino??

Linux: By default, the TeensyduinoInstall.linux32 and TeensyduinoInstall.linux64 files will not have execute permission enabled when saved by most web browsers. Use a file manager or type "chmod 755 TeensyduinoInstall.linux32" in a terminal to make the file executable. Then you can run it. In a terminal, type "./TeensyduinoInstall.linux32". Replace "32" with "64" if using the 64 bit version, or "arm" if using the ARM (Raspberry Pi) version.

Linux: Teensyduino only works with Arduino from The modified version provided by Ubuntu is not (yet) supported.

Linux (especially Gentoo): Arduino uses the AVR toolchain provided by your system. As of December 2011, Gentoo's avr-gcc is horribly broken. Some newer Fedora (avr-gcc 4.6.x) also have trouble. Faulty AVR toolchains are a persistent problem on Linux.

Please report bugs on this forum. Try to include enough information to reproduce the problem.
