On Windows, you have to install the Arduino drivers. Click on the "Download Drivers" button. A file will appear in your Downloads folder. Extract the zip file and double click on the windows-driver-installer.exe to install the driver. If you get any security warnings, click "Install" to continue.
The drivers installation might take a while, so please be patient.
After the drivers installation, the following window will appear. Click "OK". Then, go back to the guide, and you will be redirected to the next page.


On Linux, you don’t have to install any drivers, but you need to set the correct permissions. Click on the "Show Manual Fix" button, and follow the directions there.

Mac OS X

On OS X, you don't need to install any driver for FLORA. You can click on the "I've done this. Next" button to move on.

On the other hand, if you're using other Arduino boards like Duemilanove, and other Arduinos that use an FTDI chip, you'll need to install the drivers at some point. So, if you think that you are going to use Arduino boards like that in the future, you can install the drivers now and have your computer ready.
