You are not missing something, but as I recall from a previous post, you are new to using Ubuntu/Linux. If you come from MS Windows, I guess you are familiar with .bat batch files. The page you see at ~antisol/neotool is comparable to a batch script (with the difference of being more powerful etc, fill in Linux marketing ;-) ). To "install" you can follow (at least) two paths: - open the page in your web browser, copy the text and paste it in a text file, or - use the command line: wget http://users.on.net/~antisol/neotool The second will get the file and put it in your current directory. To use the script, it has to be executable. Use "chmod + x filename" to add (+) execution rights (x) to the file. You would type at the command prompt "chmod +x neotool" , for example. After that, to run: ./neotool (or whatever name you gave it). It has some dependencies, which you probably installed after reading the wiki. The whole chat with your computer could look like (it's a bit of an artists impression, but should give you an idea): traba@rig:~/$ sudo apt-get install bash zenity which awk [sudo] password for traba: .... traba@rig:~/$ wget http://users.on.net/~antisol/neotool --2012-05-09 21:25:56-- http://users.on.net/~antisol/neotool Resolving users.on.net (users.on.net)... 18.104.22.168 Connecting to users.on.net (users.on.net)|22.214.171.124|:80... connected.
