The Edbot Software is currently available for macOS 10.12 to 10.15 (Catalina) and is packaged as a DMG file. There have been big changes to the Bluetooth system in macOS in the latest OS releases and we will be investigating possible solutions in due course.
To install the software, double click the downloaded DMG file and accept the EULA to mount the image. Drag the Edbot Software icon to the Applications shortcut provided in the Edbot Software Setup window. When that's done type ⌘E to close the Edbot Software Setup window and eject the image.
We provide builds for x64 and arm32hf (Raspberry Pi) architectures. You'll need to be running a desktop such as GNOME, KDE, LXDE or Pixel. The Edbot Software is packaged as a self-extracting archive.
To install the software, open a terminal window and type the appropriate command depending on the file you've downloaded:
sudo sh <path-to-downloaded-file>/edbot_linux_x64.bin sudo sh <path-to-downloaded-file>/edbot_linux_arm32hf.bin
