I am running ubuntu 12.04 Virtualbox fuerte from nootrix.com on my mac. I can use mpide and compile the normal example projects and communicate with the serial in the ubuntu environment, and I can run the ROS demo's, but as soon as I try to run the demo rosserial_arduino hello world, I continuously get: "lost sync, restarting device..." and when i look at the serial monitor, it is gibberish. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Did you successfully upload the ROS code to the Arduino first? Also, I found that VMWare worked a little better than VirtualBox on my x86 machine. VirtualBox seemed to loose sync more often, and sometimes took a couple tries to get connected.
