  • The following procedures assume you’ve downloaded the Gallery Essentials content to an accessible folder, for instance, /Volumes/Network/Gallery.

Renaming the Folder


See the SMART Install Manager Administrator’s Guide for Mac Computers (document 125889) for more information on performing the steps in the following procedure.

To rename the folders

  1. In SMART Install Manager, open the installation package you want to modify.

  2. Select Gallery Content in the left pane.

    The Gallery Content page appears.

  3. Click Browse beside the Source location box, and then browse to the folder where the Gallery content is located.

    By default, there are two folders in this directory: Lesson Activity Toolkit 1.0 and SMART Essentials for Educators.

  4. Change the name of the SMART Essentials for Educators folder to Gallery Essentials.

  5. Redeploy the installation package.

    The Gallery content installs.

Manually Installing Gallery Essentials

To manually install Gallery Essentials

  1. Open a Terminal window.


    If you’re using Apple Remote Desktop, click UNIX.

  2. Type the following command, and then press ENTER.


    This command uses the folder location /Volumes/Network/Gallery. Replace this path with the location of the downloaded Gallery content.

    sudo /Applications/SMART\ Gallery\ Setup/Gallery\\ Setup --guid --source /Volumes/Network/Gallery/SMART\ Essentials\ for\ Educators --installall --authorized

    The Gallery content installs.
