Argutia is written in JAVA. Hence the only requirement in order to get it work is to have Sun's Java Runtime Environment (JRE 5.0 or higher) installed on your computer. JRE is currently avaible for the different families of Microsoft's Windows operating systems and Mac'OS (look here), as well as for any distribution of Linux (see first the packages of your distribution, or look here).
You may freely download Argutia. To install it, you will have first to decompress the .zip archive obtained from downloading . After decompression, you should get a new folder, named "Argutia", in which you will find a .jar archive named "argutia.jar". Simply check in the properties of this file (usually by a right click on it), that it is indeed opened by default with Sun's Java Runtime. Then launch Argutia by double clicking on "argutia.jar".
