Discussions on the software and hardware for Atmel's STK standard.
By roadfun
I'm a newbie with the ATTiny and this programmer (this will be obvious). The installation/setup instructions I've found seen outdated so quite possibly I've just set things up wrong. I started out on this page ... kup-guide/. I have Arduino 1.6.7 installed and am running on a MacBook Pro with OS 10.11.4 (latest).

I created a 'hardware' folder in the same folder as my sketches and put 'attiny' folder inside. I opened up 1.6.7 and all good I can choose "ATTiny" as a board type. I set the processor to ATTiny85, clock 1MHz and Programmer to "USBTinyISP". Here is a link to what the Tools menu looks like ... p.png?dl=0

When I hit the upload button the example blinking sketch compiles fine but fails to upload with this error:
Code: Select all
avrdude: no programmer has been specified on the command line or the config file
         Specify a programmer using the -c option and try again
Any help appreciated! Thanks.
