  • Unzip the zip file, then double click on the Arbites application to launch it.
  • Some installations may require that you symlink mono into your local bin. If the Arbites application failed to run in the previous step, run the following in terminal:
sudo ln -s /Library/Frameworks/Mono.framework/Commands/mono /usr/local/bin/mono

Linux Portable Version

  • First, install mono-complete with your package manager, in this example we will use apt.
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install mono-complete
  • Now, we are ready to run Arbites, first download Arbites portable edition.
  • Unzip the downloaded archive file somewhere, then open a terminal in the arbites directory. (the directory with the Arbites exe files)
  • You need to add your current user to the dialout user group to access the RS232 ports for key rebinding, otherwise, you will have to run the application in root every time you want to rebind your keys, to add your user to the dialout user group, do the following:
sudo adduser [your_user_name] dialout
  • Now you could run the following to start the application:
mono ArbitesEto2.Gtk2.exe
  • Or you could run the following the start the application with elevated privileges if you did not add your user to the dialout user group:
sudo mono ArbitesEto2.Gtk2.exe
