How to install Raspberry Pi sending info from an ultrasonic sensor to a laptop using Splunk?

Explorer

I'm a novice when it comes to working with Raspberry Pi's and Splunk. Trying to send information from an ultrasonic sensor to a laptop using Splunk. I have downloaded Splunk onto my laptop and have it up and running. I have then downloaded Splunk on the Raspberry Pi, but don't know how to install it. I have been using this page to set everything up. http://blogs.splunk.com/2013/10/21/how-to-splunk-data-from-a-raspberry-pi-three-easy-steps/
Can somebody help?

Did you download Splunk or the universal forwarder to your Raspberry Pi? They are different packages. The instructions in the blog (that link to http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Storm/Storm/User/Setupauniversalforwarderonnix) should work.

I downloaded the Universal Forwarder but don't know what to do from there.

Are you following the instructions in the link for setting up a universal forwarder? I am confused about exactly where you are running into trouble.

I don't know how to install the Universal Forwarder after downloading it. Do I need to run a command in LX Terminal or do something else?

Yes, you need to install it from the command line in a terminal. See http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Storm/latest/User/Setupauniversalforwarderonnix#Install_the_for....

Building on @chrisG's post, the app's documentation points to some installation instructions: https://splunkbase.splunk.com/app/1611/#/documentation

I downvoted this post because the link does not go to an article.
