Install AtoMiC ToolKit

To install AtoMiC ToolKit on your Ubuntu-based system, all you have to do is to clone the project from GitHub and run the script. These two steps are the only two steps you have run in commandline, almost everything else is automated for you.

Downloading / Installing AtoMiC ToolKit

First open terminal and install Git, which is required for AtoMiC ToolKit to work properly:

sudo apt-get -y install git-core

Next, clone the AtoMiC ToolKit project from GitHub:

git clone ~/AtoMiC-ToolKit

This will create a folder called AtoMiC-ToolKit with all necessary scripts.

Run AtoMiC ToolKit

To run AtoMiC ToolKit you will have to open commandline, navigate to AtoMiC-ToolKit folder (or whatever folder you downloaded/unzipped the files to) and run the setup script:

cd ~/AtoMiC-ToolKit
sudo bash

That’s it, just choose the option you want to pursue and sit back, relax, and watch the magic that happens in front of you. You may come back and run the AtoMiC script any time you want to do any operation.
