Follow these steps in order to use Energia for the Launchpad MSP-EXP430G2 board.

Install the java-rxtx package.

Create a udev rule:

/etc/udev/rules.d/10-launchpad.rules
SUBSYSTEM=="usb",ATTR{idVendor}=="0451",ATTR{idProduct}=="f432",GROUP="dialout",MODE="0660"

Create dialout group:

# groupadd dialout

Add your user to groups lock, uucp and dialout:

# usermod -a -G lock,uucp,dialout $(whoami)

Download energia from www.energia.nu and decompress it.

Change directory to the folder lib:

$ cd ./energia-0101E0012/lib/

Create a backup of these files (or delete them):

$ mv librxtxSerial.so librxtxSerial.so.bak
$ mv librxtxSerial64.so librxtxSerial64.so.bak
$ mv RXTXcomm.jar RXTXcomm.jar.bak

Create links to the Arch Linux version of java-rxtx:

$ ln -s /usr/lib/librxtxSerial.so "librxtxSerial.so"
$ ln -s /usr/lib/librxtxSerial.so "librxtxSerial64.so"
$ ln -s /usr/share/java/rxtx/RXTXcomm.jar "RXTXcomm.jar"

Reboot (or restart udev, log out and log in).

Plug your launchpad and start energia.
