cd ~/RocksmithToTab, and then you can execute the program by typing
That's it. Be sure to check the readme and the Wiki on the details of using RocksmithToTab. Just remember that you always have to prefix any command with

mono RocksmithToTab.exe ~/Library/Application\ Support/Steam/SteamApps/common/Rocksmith2014/songs.psarc
To get the DLC is just:
mono RocksmithToTab.exe ~/Library/Application\ Support/Steam/SteamApps/common/Rocksmith2014/dlc/*.psarc
