Hi James,
Thanks for the feedback on the X error.
You're welcome.

to install on 64bits. Gotta verify I didn't miss anything in my notes.
I also set up MPIDE(Arduino), Fritzing, and Eagle. They all needed
additional libraries to be loaded and desktop files to be created.
There are no five minute jobs!
Nice that you've got an Arduino. I was thinking of getting one for my
sons when they are a bit older, to encourage an interest in Robotics.
How do you find it?

play with in the Demo.
I haven't looked, I use the online one.
