Installing the AVR toolchain for use on MPLAB X IDE

Hi, I wanted to know how to install the AVR tool chain so I can write code inside MPLAB X IDE the same I do in Atmel Studio to later compile and program the device with my Atmel Ice. I tried installing the tool chain (https://www.microchip.com...oolchains-c-compilers) and then put the install location on "add" from the toolchain menu on options/embedded inside mplab X, but never worked... so any help would be very appreciated.

On choosing the directory and adding it, the bin folder directory's address is the one that should be used.

Hi,
 
Do you want to compile code for 8bits AVRs ?
If so, just install XC8 v2.xx, it includes both PIC and AVR compilers
 
Regards

Thanks for all of your responses,
 
And yes, I want to compile to 8 Bit AVR MCUs, is there any major difference between using XC8 and the compiler used in atmel studio?
I will try and use XC8, if anything goes strange I will be posting!, thanks again.

I'm trying to program in assembler AVR.
I downloaded the toolchain from AVR 8-bit Toolchain 3.6.2 - Linux 64-bit  and added it to mplabX in Tools-options.embeded.build tools-add. MPlabx recognizes it as AVR 5.4.0 and mark the tool green (full support). I have created a new project with standalone project and using the AVR toolchain, but every single program I try to compile reports errors.

Sorry, can't quite make out what the errors say on your screen.
 

Nearly there...

Do you have a question, or are you just telling us about your experience?

 look: the same AVR code compiled with XC
 
Where should I look for the mistake?Any tricks/ suggestions with AVR tool chain adding in embedded build tools?Thanks for advice/ response...

This is my path to add avr-gcc 9.1 from http://blog.zakkemble.net/avr-gcc-builds/

I am trying to import an Atmel Studio (AS7) Project based on AVR-GCC compiler on Linux Ubuntu18.04.3 LTS.
My toolchain on MPLAB X is AVR_GCC version 5.4.0 provided by Microchip Site. I would want to stick to AVR_GCC since my entire project has been maintained on this compiler. 
I have successfully performed this task of transition from AS7 to MPLAB-X on Windows 10.
My problem is transition from Windows to Linux where I am having this issue which states that AVR (v1.0.0) isn't supported.
My existing code has loads of issues when used with xc8 compiler, especially related to strings and pointers.
 
I have tried using the default location at /usr/bin too which again prompts the same problem.
What do I do ?

Regards,
Nelson Lobo
