When I got the software, Ubuntu automatically proposes a software to unpack but in the end of the process it gives an error and simply stops, without doing anything.
Could you give me a simple process of installation without affecting my original Arduino software ?

The mpide file is a tgz (tar gzip). I just put it in ~/bin/ and issued on the command line:
tar -xzvf mpide-0022-chipkit-linux32-20110529.tgz
This created a directory in bin of the same name and I run mpide out of that directory.
Don't forget you need to install the gccavr tools separately (set me back a couple of days not knowing this) and java or icetea and rxtx.

ABSOLUTELY GREAT !!! I haven't put on the bin directory (permissions denied) but in my home directory it works perfectly.
Now I'm having problems in windows, it's so long to unzip this file....

The ~ in ~/bin/ means the bin folder in your home directory. Try this to see what I mean:
cd / pwd ls cd ~ pwd ls
I use 7zip for extracting files in Windows.
