 +
 +To download //​Whatpulse//​ go in the webpage [[http://​www.whatpulse.org/​downloads]] and download the //generic// linux version (32 or 64 bits depending on your installed operating system)
 +
 +Create a directory an extract it, opening a new //​terminal//:​
 +<code bash>
 +pippo@pc:~$ mkdir soft
 +pippo@pc:~$ cd soft
 +pippo@pc:​~/​soft$ tar xvfz whatpulse-linux-64bit-2.4.tar.gz
 +</​code>​
 +
 +Install //​Whatpulse//​ running the script ''​setup-input-permissions.sh''​ with root privileges (by using the ''​sudo''​ command):
 +<code bash>
 +sudo ./​setup-input-permissions.sh
 +</​code>​
 +
 +**Note:** when the ''​setup-input-permissions.sh''​ script ask you:
 +//"​Please enter the username that should get added to the group:"//​
 +write your user name, in this example ''​pippo''​.
 +
 +To run //​Whatpulse//​ the following libraries must be installed with the ''​apt-get''​ install command:
 +<code bash>
 +sudo apt-get install libqtcore4
 +sudo apt-get install libqtwebkit4
 +sudo apt-get install libqtscript4-core
 +sudo apt-get install libqt4-sql ​
 +sudo libqt4-sql-sqlite
 +sudo libssl-dev
 +</​code>​
 +
 +If you want that //​Whatpulse//​ also logs the network usage, the following packet and command must be typed in a //​terminal//,​ in the ''​soft''​ directory previously created:
 +<code bash>
 +sudo apt-get install libpcap-dev
 +sudo setcap cap_net_raw,​cap_net_admin=eip ./whatpulse
 +</​code>​
 +
 +Now //​Whatpulse//​ can be started with the following command executed in the directory ''​soft'':​
 +<code bash>
 +./whatpulse
 +</​code>​
 +only the first time you run //​Whatpulse//,​ it must be started in a terminal. For all others computer boots, //​Whatpulse//​ will start automatically at login.
