If you are looking for software for Syllable Server, go here. Binary software packages for Syllable Desktop do not run on Syllable Server, and the other way around (with the exception of some text scripts).

The easiest software packages to install and use on Syllable are application packages. Applications are graphical programs that you can use with the mouse. Application packages released by the Syllable project are compressed with the Zip program and can be unpacked and run anywhere (packages from others may be packed differently). You can do this from the command prompt by opening the ATerm application and typing the following commands.

First unpack the package in a working directory. If you didn't put the package in your home directory, but for example on the desktop, you should go there:

    cd Desktop

Now unpack the package, using its file name:

    unzip name-version.application

Some applications are single files, but most larger ones consist of multiple files in an application folder. If you unpacked the package on the desktop, you will be able to see the new icon of the application on your desktop. If it is a folder, it should have the same name as the application. You can open the application by clicking on it. If it is a single file, this will start the application immediately. If it is a folder, a File Browser window will open, in which you should be able to see the icon of the application. Clicking on this icon will then start the application.

You can move the application file or folder anywhere you like on any disk that was formatted with the Syllable AFS format. The folder named "Applications" on your desktop is special, though. If you drop the application on that icon, the application will be in the /Applications/ directory on your disk and will automatically appear in the Syllable applications menu in the dock bar of your desktop.
