If your Operating System does not natively support decompressing, please install 7-Zip from http://7-zip.org. * 512 MB RAM XOWA can run on lower memory machines, but 256 MB is needed for importing the larger wikis (EX: en.wikipedia.org; commons.wikimedia.org) Linux ----- * Download 'xowa_app_linux_v*.*.*.*.zip' * Unzip to '/home/your_user_name/xowa/'. When you are done you should have a file called '/home/your_user_name/xowa/xowa_linux.jar' as well as many others * Open a terminal and run "sh /home/your_user_name/xowa/xowa_linux.sh" * If "xowa_linux.sh" doesn't work, run "java -Xmx256m -jar /home/your_user_name/xowa/xowa_linux.jar" Mac OS X 64-bit --------------- * Download 'xowa_app_macosx_64_v*.*.*.*.zip' * Unzip to '/Users/your_user_name/xowa/'.

However it requires additional steps. * Find your java runtime: Run "/Library/Internet\ Plug-Ins/JavaAppletPlugin.plugin/Contents/Home/bin/java -version" in the terminal to verify the path * Assuming your java is at the above location, run XOWA by doing either of the following (1) Run the following from the terminal: /Library/Internet\ Plug-Ins/JavaAppletPlugin.plugin/Contents/Home/bin/java -Xmx256m -XstartOnFirstThread -Xdock:name=XOWA /Users/your_user_name/xowa/xowa_macosx_64.jar (2) Change your official java to the plugin version and then run xowa_macosx_64.sh sudo ln -fs /Library/Internet\ Plug-Ins/JavaAppletPlugin.plugin/Contents/Home/bin/java /usr/bin/java NOTE: if the XOWA menu bar is not clickable, alt-tab to the terminal and back to XOWA.
