Board manager in Arduino, can't find Gamebuino META

I was trying to install the board drivers in the Arduino IDE and have added the path, when searching for the boards: the Arduino SAMD comes up but not the Gamebuino META when searching for the board drivers, has the Gamebuino META driver moved? or has the json path changed.

Thanks for any help,

Brian

Have you add URL: https://lab.gamebuino.com/arduino/package_gamebuino_index.json in the menu File/Preferences ?

Yes, and it finds the Arduino SAMD with no problem but when searching for Gamebuino META nothing shows up in the search.

Even the Libraries worked just fine, weird?

I’ve done this before, I’m just setting it up again and having this problem.

I’m getting a Error downloading https://lab.gamebuino.com/arduino/package_gamebuino_index.json
error from Adruino IDE, is the link down or something maybe?

Have you change card type before: It must be set on Gamebuino META before downloading
(Configuration manuelle d'Arduino - Gamebuino)
Else, you can have a look here: https://github.com/Gamebuino/Gamebuino-Meta

JMP has just said that URL have a problem since 2 or 3 days. A certificate to update… it’s why you encounter some problems. Sorry for the useless tests, i just learned it

Thanks, any idea when it might work again?

Hi Brian,
I will put the json repository on the main gamebuino.com site tomorrow while we wait for the repository to be repaired on lab.gamebuino.com
(the site’s SSL certificate was revoked a few days ago)

Thank you! I’ll watch for it :grinning: :+1:

Hi Brian,

We now have a backup repository on the main site while waiting to reactivate the certificate

https://gamebuino.com/sdk/package_gamebuino_index.json

You can add this repository in your Arduino IDE

Thanks, it’s working now, I really appreciate it.

SSL cert is updated, autorenew is working again (certbot was too old), and soru properly transfered power over to JMP. Seems like this is one of the things that fell off the radar over time but should now be sorted out ^^

I hope that Sorunome will come back and find some times to make some new crazy things with her META if she can retrieve it in all the things she do :slight_smile:

I was attempting to introduce the board drivers in the Arduino IDE and have added the way, while looking for the sheets: the Arduino SAMD comes up however not the Gamebuino META while looking for the board drivers, has the Gamebuino META driver moved? or on the other hand has the json way changed.
Thanks.

Hi bizzeonline,

There was no change for the json files, but we added a second rescue repository just in case.

Our 2 repositories seem to be working well:
https://lab.gamebuino.com/arduino/package_gamebuino_index.json
https://gamebuino.com/sdk/package_gamebuino_index.json

If you have multiple repositories in your Arduino IDE settings, be sure to place them on different lines.

What version of the Arduino IDE are you using?

I’ve done this before, I’m just setting it up again and having this problem.
Thanks
