Installation of LMSS is, shockingly, handled by a shell script. There are, however, three small steps required by the user after completing download.  The first is to untar the file with

tar -zxvf lmss-dev1.tgz

This will extract the contents of the file into a subdirectory of the current folder.  The subdir will be called lmss-install.  Enter that directory with

cd lmss-install

All that's needed now is to run the installer.  If you do not specify a target directory, LMSS will default to $HOME/lmss.  The aliases will reside in your home directory in the file .lmss-aliases, and are loaded by .bashrc.  To run the installer with the default settings, enter the command


Make sure not to forget the "." and the "/".   To specify a target other than the default $HOME/lmss, specify it at the command line.  For example

./install /home/zer0/scripts

would install the script pack to /home/zer0/scripts.  If when running the installer you get a "permission denied" error, you need to change permissions on the file to allow execution.  This has nothing to do with root permissions, so it is not necessary to be root at any time during the installation.  To allow the installer to be executed, enter the command

chmod +x ./install

Now make another attempt to run the installer.  It's worth noting that after installation of LMSS, the "chmod +x" command can be replaced with the shorter and more easily remembered "mkx", as in "make executable".  Upon completion of the installer, you must restart your shell for the scripts and aliases to be loaded.
