How to install on Linux

There is a separate XModules installer version for Windows, Mac and Linux. The XModule installer package includes the FileAccess XModule and the RealUser Simulation XModule. The modules works with both, Kantu for Firefox and Chrome. So if you use both Kantu versions, you need to install the XModules only once.

The XModules installers do not include Kantu itself. So you need to you have Kantu already installed.

We tested on the following OS systems, but others should work as well. Please report any issues in the forum.

  • Windows: Win 10, Win 7, Server 2016
  • macOS: High Sierra, Mojave
  • Linux: Ubuntu 18.04

How to install on Windows

Just run the setup file, it takes care of everything. All installations are done in your user account, so no admin rights are required. To test that everything works correctly, switch Kantu to file storage mode. The screencast below shows the installation process:

As an optional last step, you can customize the Kantu home folder location. By default, Kantu uses " /Kantu" as the Kantu home directory. If you want to change this, open the Kantu browser extension, open "Settings", go to the "XModule" tab and enter a new Kantu Home folder - macros, testsuites and CSV files will be stored in this folder.

How to install on macOS

First extract the content of the downloaded ZIP archive to a folder of your choice. Then open a command prompt and navigate to this folder.

macOS installation

(1.) Run the included shell script "1install.sh". You do this by opening the terminal, navigate to the folder to which you copied the files and type

sh 1install.sh


You should then see a few messages that say "Native messaging host... installed"

The installation is done now!

(2.) (Optional) As the last step you can customize the Kantu home folder location. By default, Kantu uses " /Kantu" as the Kantu home directory. If you want to change this, open the Kantu browser extension, open "Settings", go to the "XModule" tab and enter a new Kantu Home folder - macros, testsuites and CSV files will be stored in this folder. To test that everything works correctly, switch Kantu to file storage mode.

macOS Mojave: On Mojave, you need to allow Chrome and Firefox to control your Mac. Behind the scenes, it is the Kantu RealUser Simulation XModule that does the work, but since Kantu "lives" in Chrome and Firefox, the browsers are shown in the accessibility dialog instea of Kantu and the RealUser XModule. This step is only required if you plan to use RealUser XModule and its XClick, XMove or XType commands. The FileAccess XModule does not need these permissions.

Allow Kantu to control your Mac (RealUser module only)
