The installation is the uncompression of the downloaded package where you want to install the package.
$ tar zxf ken-vX.X.X-linux-amd64.tar.gz
Or,
$ tar zxf ken-baobab-vX.X.X-linux-amd64.tar.gz
Note: it is recommended that the uncompressed directory ken-linux-amd64/bin path should be added to the environment variable $PATH to run the ken and kend globally. As an example,
$ export PATH=$PATH:~/downloaded/path/ken-linux-amd64/bin
The other sections assume that the path is added to the variable.

You can install the downloaded RPM file with the following yum command.
$ yum install kend-vX.X.X.el7.x86_64.rpm
Or,
$ yum install kend-baobab-vX.X.X.el7.x86_64.rpm
