Just download the latest version from Softpedia using the download section above, extract the contents of the archive somewhere on your path (e.g. Home directory), execute the run.sh file, start up a web browser and point to http://localhost:8080, login using the owner/owner credentials. Please note that you should immediately change owner's password after the first login (go to Menu -> System -> Change Password).

What other operating systems are supported?
Besides GNU/Linux, this web-based application written in the Java programming language is fully supported and has been successfully tested under the Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X operating systems.
