  2. If FlowDesigner libraries are not installed in the /usr/lib directory, you also might need to set the LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable to the directory where FlowDesigner libraries are installed.
  3. If you plan to use Player & Stage, you will also need to set the PATH environment variable to the proper directories.
  4. Run the visual editor (flowdesigner) included with FlowDesigner.
  5. Right clicking on the canvas, you should see the RobotFlow menu and available blocks
  6. Enjoy!
