Hi,

we found a simple way to install the Aris Business Architect on Linux and Mac OS X.

Linux:

1) The installtion requires gtar. If it is not installed you have to create a link with “sudo ln /bin/tar /bin/gtar”.
 
2) Navigate in the folder ./Setups/Unix Linux/ARIS Platform”.
 
3) Start the Script: ./install_ARIS_72.631018.sh. Now should the installtion finish without any error.
 
Mac: 
 
1) The installtion requires gtar. If it is not installed you have to create a link with “sudo ln /bin/tar /bin/gtar”.
 
2) Navigate in the folder ./Setups/Unix Linux/ARIS Platform”.
 
3) Change the definition of the jvmPath! -> Set the jvmPath to "jvmPath=/usr/", in the "install_ARIS_72.631018.sh" file.
 
4) Start the Script: ./install_ARIS_72.631018.sh.
 
5) The created folder ".jre", can be deleted.

3. What I have done to install ARIS?
  a) Install TAR GUI (small aplication for mac - free, with tar compressor)
  b) In terminal run something like this: ln -sv $(which tar) gtar
Now you can run aris installation file for linux (of course use sh command).
4. What I have done to configure "lounching" script. After installing aris you'll find in catalog few files with nice names (aris architect, aris designer etc). Open file you want to configure with text ecitor:
  a) Change the line jvmPath into...whatever!!!! It can be jvmPath=/I hate windows/
  Close the file
5) Install JRE:
  - start terminal
  - type: java -version
  if You have no JRE - it will ask if You want to install - do it.
6. Now just start script using commend: sh
  Aris script will say something like - build in java corrupted - using system one (the one you have just installed). And vuala - works :-)
