Setting up your Laptop running Mac OS X

1. Installing the Omni Experimenter Tool

  1. Download this file: omniTools.dmg.
  2. Double-click on omniTools.dmg to unpack it. This will result in a drive called omniTools to be mounted on your computer. You should see this drive on your Desktop.
  3. Double-click on the omniTools drive to open it.
  4. Drag the omniTools icon to the Applications icon.
  5. Open a terminal window.
  6. Run the script /Applications/omniTools/ This script will add aliases for the various Omni tools in your ~/.bash_profile or ~/.bash_login or ~/.profile. (The script looks for these files in this order).

Test the installation:

  1. Open a new terminal window.
  2. In this terminal window, run the command:
    omni --version
    If omni prints out its version number, you are all set!

2. Make sure Flash works

  1. You will need Google Chrome or Firefox.
  2. Make sure you are able to load
  3. If you do not have flash installed and you are using Firefox, install the Flash plugin for Firefox.

3. Install an ssh client

Mac OS X comes with an ssh client you can run from a Terminal window. You do not need to install anything.
