8 Install Automatix

Automatix2 comes with a graphical interface, but in order to install Automatix2 there are a few steps we have to do on the command line. Go to Applications > Accessories > Terminal to open a command line window:

In the command line window, type in the following commands to install Automatix:

echo "deb http://www.getautomatix.com/apt edgy main" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list

You might have to provide your password. Afterwards, run

wget http://www.getautomatix.com/apt/key.gpg.asc
gpg --import key.gpg.asc
gpg --export --armor 521A9C7C | sudo apt-key add -

and update the packages database:

sudo apt-get update

Finally, install Automatix:

sudo apt-get install automatix2

Then close the command line window. After Automatix has been installed, you can find it under Applications -> System Tools -> Automatix:
