Open a terminal and go to the folder where you have downloaded the bin file. Run the .bin file. E.g.: Under command Prompt
$ chmod +x hidpoint1-0.bin
$sudo -E ./hidpoint1-0.bin
The installation wizard will guide you through the process.
No you don't need to be logged in as root, But you will need to provide admin privileges (sudo) to the installer process.
To run HIDPoint on 64 bit OS, you first need to install 32 bit libraries. In Ubuntu you can install the 32 bit libraries using the following command. sudo apt-get install ia32-libs. To know more about how to install 32 bit libraries check out the demo [b]Installing 32 bit libraries on 64 bit OS[/b]
Due to permission issues, please install HIDPoint in a directory which is by default accessible to all the users. Usually "/opt/hidpoint" is a good choice.
No, the installer will take care of all the necessary steps that needs to be done to detect and to configure the device.
Please make sure, you have at least one of the devices HIDPoint supports plugged in. Some distros require a reboot for the devices to be detected. You can also try unplugging and re-plugging the receiver.
Open a terminal and type "uninstall_hidpoint" or double click the "Remove HIDPoint" Desktop icon. The uninstall wizard will guide you through the uninstall process.
