As I am trying the new mbed OS.5 (before I used mbed OS.3) on my Ubuntu using mbed CLI first time to apply mbed-os-example-blinky cloning from /media/uploads/Mias/bildschirmfoto_vom_2016-08-24_10-45-1333.png https://github.com/ARMmbed/mbed-os-example-blinky.gitboard after importing the example from github, as I use "mbed detect" the reply is "No mbed targets where detected on your system" though all the targets and tool chains are in mbed OS folders as I use "mbed target Nucleo_F401Re" and "mbed toolchain GCC_ARM" both will be set as default for this example. when I am compiling "mbed compile" I am getting +---+-+-+--+




+---+-+-+--+ and Image: ./.build/NUCLEO_F401RE/GCC_ARM/mbed-os-example-blinky.git.bin now my problem that I can`t find the .bin file anywhere!!! anyone can helping with this? what might the problem be?

Thanks in advance, Maria

I think the .build folder will be hidden by default on Ubuntu. However if you run `ls -al` you should be able to see it, and by `open .build/NUCLEO_F401RE/GCC_ARM` you should get a shell from which you can drag and drop the firmware on your board.

Thank you for the answer, I have tried what you have advised me to do, but unfortunately I got nothing!

What does that mean? I am using Ubuntu for the first time so it`s still little bit complicated for me! Where should I find the build folder now ?

Here is a way to view by default in Nautilus

Thanks Sam for your answer, it was quite useful. I was able to see the folder .build for the first time :) the file was hidden by Ubuntu and with ctrl+h it was shown and I found the .bin file finally!!
