-:!: add libtool-bin ​if using Debian8/​Jessie.+NoteIf you set ''​STANDALONE=y'',​ then the current Espressif SDK will be directly integrated into your toolchain. This eases the development,​ but makes it difficult to upgrade SDK versions later on. Set ''​STANDALONE=n'' ​if you want to separate the SDK.
  
-=== Build toolchain ​===+==== Configure PATH ==== 
 +To call the generated ''​xtensa-lx106-*''​ binaries, you have to add the toolchain to your ''​PATH''​. 
 +You can set ''​PATH''​ on every new terminal session:
  
-   git clone https://​github.com/​pfalcon/​esp-open-sdk.git +<​code>​ 
-   cd esp-open-sdk +export PATH=[your ​esp-open-sdk ​directory]/​bin:​$PATH

-Note: If you set ''​STANDALONE=y'', ​the current Espressif SDK will be directly integrated into your toolchain. This eases the development,​ but makes it difficult to upgrade SDK versions later on. Set ''​STANDALONE=n'' ​if you want to separate the SDK.+To make this change permanent add the above line to your ''​.profile'' ​file in your home directory.

-To make this change permanent add the above line to your ''​.profile'' ​file in your home directory.+  * Make sure you have javaJRE installed first. 
 +  * Go to ''​Arduino.cc'' ​and download Latest IDE for Linux. 
 +  * Extract it wherever you want it. 
 +  * Go into that directory ​and open a terminal and type ''​./​Arduino''​ 
 + 
 +Thats it . You can drag that shell script to the desktop if you wish.  Now you follow the instructions on ESP8266/​Arduino to add the ESP8266 library
