Installation Instructions

On all machines

Download the zipped file from the Sophie download page and unzip it to create the directory sophie2-alpha-3; inside it, you'll find the directory sophie2-platform, where all files are.

For instructions on running Sophie Server, see the Sophie Server page.

Windows

Run the file sophie2-alpha-3\sophie2_author.bat to run Sophie Author.

Run the file sophie2-alpha-3\sophie2_reader.bat to run Sophie Reader.

Linux

Run the file sophie2-alpha-3/sophie2_author.sh to run Sophie Author.

Run the file sophie2-alpha-3/sophie2_reader.sh to run Sophie Reader.

Mac OS X

Older Intel-based Macs (with 32-bit processors) don't have Java 6 installed. This release is dependent upon Java 6; future releases will solve this incompatibility. However, Sophie 2 can be run on these machines if X11 is installed by installing SoyLatte, an open source version of Java 6. To run Sophie 2:

  1. Go here to download SoyLatte; read the instructions there.
  2. Unzip the SoyLatte zip file.
  3. Open Terminal and move the SoyLatte directory to /usr/bin/: mv soylatte16-i386-1.0.3 /usr/bin/.
  4. You may need to add the following to your .profile file to add SoyLatte to your path and to set the JAVA_HOME variable:
export PATH=/usr/local/soylatte16-i386-1.0.3/bin:$PATH;
export PATH=/usr/local/apache-maven-2.1.0/bin:$PATH;
export PATH=/opt/subversion/bin:$PATH;
export JAVA_HOME=/usr/local/soylatte16-i386-1.0.3;
  1. Unzip the application files by double clicking sophie2_author.zip and sophie2_reader.zip in the sophie2-alpha-3/sophie-platform folder.
  2. Open sophie2_author to run Sophie Author; open sophie2_reader to run Sophie Reader.

On newer Macs (with 64-bit processors), Sophie 2 can be run without installing SoyLatte. To do this, it's necessary to make sure that you're using Java 6.

  1. Open the application Java Preferences in /Applications/Utilities/Java/ and in the applications subpanel, drag Java SE 6 to the top:

source:/trunk/sophie2-platform/doc/userdoc-images/RELEASE_3/OSXJavaPreferences.png

  1. Unzip the application files by double clicking sophie2_author.zip and sophie2_reader.zip in the sophie2-alpha-3/sophie-platform folder.
  2. Open sophie2_author to run Sophie Author; open sophie2_reader to run Sophie Reader.
