Hello Pepe. Currently, we don't have a separate version for the Chrome OS, but you can try to install our Android app on it.

It doens't start...
I installed the deb on my system (Jessie), all smooth, but upon launching the app I get this:

$ scenarist
/usr/share/KIT/Scenarist/Scenarist: /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ no version information available (required by /usr/share/KIT/Scenarist/libs/
/usr/share/KIT/Scenarist/Scenarist: relocation error: /usr/share/KIT/Scenarist/libs/ symbol dbus_message_get_allow_interactive_authorization, version LIBDBUS_1_3 not defined in file with link time reference

Any idea on how to move forward?

Thanks in advance, have a nice day. ;)

Is there any way for this program to work on ARM architecture? I'm using Ubuntu on a cheap laptop.

I think it's possible, but, firstly it should be built from sources. You can find the application sources here -
