Everything Else » Ok I have Ubuntu 12.04 now what do I do??

I have a dual boot Ubuntu with Windows 7.

The Nerdkits download for Ubuntu says it should not be needed.

What does that mean? Is everything preinstalled?

How do I find what USB device I am using?

I see lots of TTY and USB folders in /dev but how do I know what to put in my makefile?

And speaking of Make how do I get to my folder with my projects, from the command line (Terminal)?

My drive is called DDDDD nerdkits/code/projects.

The DDDDD drive is mounted I can see all of the folders and files.

I get this from the original initialload project:

AVRDUDEFLAGS=-c avr109 -p m328p -b 115200 -P /dev/ttyUSB0

This makes sense if I knew I was using ttyUSB0.

Thanks for the help,
