    Teensyduino installer doesn't allow arbitrary directory selection

    I used Ubuntu Make to install the latest version of the Arduino IDE. This tool installs the IDE into /home/<user>/.local/share/umake/electronics/arduino.
    I can't seem to install TeensyDuino as the installer doesn't allow navigation to directories beginning with a dot (hidden dirs).

    Can you make the installer so that we can just type in a directory instead of having to use the drop-down & menu navigation?

    Thanks.

    Okay, so I used a workaround: sudo ln -s /usr/bin/arduino <arduino_dir_with_hidden_dir_in_path>
    Then just navigate to the symbolic link.

    The installer has an undocumented "headless" feature, which lets you just type the pathname on the command line. Run it like this:

    Code:
    ./TeensyduinoInstall.linux64 --dir=arduino-1.8.13
