Installing Accountable2You on Linux (ArchLinux)

Download the Accountable2You zip file. Then once the file has downloaded click on it to unzip it. Make sure you see the ".pkg.tar.xz" file in the Downloads folder before proceeding.


Step 2: Open the Terminal application and use the following commands.

A. Type sudo pacman -S --noconfirm sudo wmctrl python2-libappindicator python2-suds python2-psutil pygtk fakeroot. Press Enter. This will install the necessary dependencies.


B. Type cd Downloads. Press Enter. This points the Terminal to the directory in which the install file resides.

C. Type sudo pacman -U --noconfirm accountable2you-1.79-1-any.pkg.tar.xz. Press Enter. This should install the Accountable2You program.


Step 3: After the software has installed, search for and open "Accountable2You".



Step 4: Login or Signup.

If you already have an account with Accountable2You, select the "Login" button. If you haven't signed up for an account yet, click "Signup - 10 day FREE trial" where you'll be taken to our website to register. Once registered, return to the setup screen and click "Login".


Step 5: Acknowledge Terms & Conditions

Please take a moment to review the License Agreement for Accountable2You. When finished, please indicate that you agree by clicking "I accept the terms". Then click "Continue."


Step 6: Register the program.

In order to associate the device with your account so that it appears on your reports, you will need to register using your Accountable2You username and password. The "Computer Name" can be whatever you wish. This is how the device will appear on your reports, so make it something that will clearly indicate which device this is (ie. Joe's PC). When finished click "Add PC to Account".


Step 6b: Assign to a specific user (For Family Accounts Only).

If you have a family account and you have entered the managing user's username and password, the next screen will show all sub-users in your account. Highlight the name of the specific user to whom you want to register this device in order to proceed.


Step 7: Assign Accountability Partners.

Click "Setup Partners" to be taken to the Accountable2You website, where you can add or edit partner settings for this device. For help with setting up a partner, view our support article on Setting Up Accountability Partners.


You're All Setup!

Be sure to repeat this process for any additional user accounts, as Accountable2You will only monitor the account that it is installed on.

You can know that Accountable2You is setup and monitoring by the presence of the "AU" icon in the bottom bar of your computer.

Click here to perform the red alert test. (Make sure you are on the device that you want to test when you click this link).
