I added a short note for adding gen7 support to arduino on linux. You may want something similar in the install.txt file on Github. Took me a while to figure out how to add support on an arduino installation from package manager. The files get scattered to the appropriate folders in the file system, and at least on Ubuntu, even when you do find the hardware folder, you can't copy to it unless you are root. Generally though it should also stick a sketches folder in your home directory and you can put the gen7 support folder in there in a new folder called "hardware". This might show up more as the newer versions of ubuntu have packages for arduino. So more people will do it that way cause it's easiest, and you get a nice little icon in your applications menu. -- Bryanandaimee
