I went with Barfs Plans, although his looks much better.
I used a breakout board instead of soldering
The TSMP98000. replacement for the TSMP58000 works fine
I did have troubles in Ubuntu finding the port and I had to Uninstall
Braille Reader "brltty" for the port tty/usb0 to be stable
In windows I had trouble with using Barfs script to upload the hex file to the Nano using avrdude
Then I found a 'GUI" program for Avrdude Called "Avrdudess" and that program successfully uploaded the Hex fike
There is an install and a portable version of Avrdudess. The install version did not work for me but the portable version did
The portable version has Avrdude included in the zip file and both versions need .NET Framework 2.0 SP1 or newer which my windows 10 needed to download and install
For those using windows and wanting to make Barfs design you may find Avrdudess Helpfull

This thread is about the "AIRWidget", while you appear to refer to this. So please use another thread, or open a new one.

"Trouble"?? if /dev/ttyUSB0 was in use by your brltty, then likely Ubunto mounted it as /dev/ttyUSB1. Is that your "trouble"?

"Trouble"? Why don't you help us helping you? There is a lot of output from the script, that likely will tell what went wrong.

The best, and recommended, way is to use the Arduino IDE.

I have built and have a working Arduino Nano as IR sender and receiver
This was my experience getting it to work for me

I did have troubles in Ubuntu finding the port and I had to Uninstall
Braille Reader "brltty" for the port tty/usb0 to be stable
no matter what port i tried the ports would display and then disappear in Irscrutinizer
I read on some Arduino boards that Braille Reader "brltty" interferes and uninstalling that solved the problem
The problem I had with the script installing the Hex file in windows was setting the correct path and the I also ran into firewall permission errors
I Then I found a 'GUI" program for Avrdude Called "Avrdudess and used that instead of the Arduino IDE Because once again It Too could not find the port
also I am very new to Arduino and have not figured out how to have it open a hex file
I just remembered that for the script to work for me I had to increase the speed of the port
