I couldn't get it to install as a library, either. So, I've modified ArduinoJson to work with Galileo. You have to drop the contents of this zip into your project (ie, same level as your *.ino).

The library is very much architecture independent. It works well with any Arduino board. The issue is with the version of the IDE.
I contacted the author and he provided me a new version of the library with the old layout compatible with Arduino 1.5.3 and it works perfect.
No changes on the code, just change on the library layout.
This is a good example of elegant implementation of an JSON parser.
I tried installing this ZIP and got the ol' "missing core-dependencies" error I was receiving from the older version. Are you on Windows or OSX (though not sure if that matters)?
If you just add those files on the library folder, it works OK.
Do not try to import the library from the IDE, I think that still works OK, but it gives you an error message, because the libraries.properties is not defined.
