I am trying to install libatlas on my system Elementary Luna OS using the steps given here

Since I can not add a comment there, I have to ask this here. I get the following error on trying this command:

~$ fakeroot debian/rules custom

/usr/bin/fakeroot: line 178: /debian/rules: No such file or directory

What could be the possible reason for this error? I found somewhere that it might be fixed by replacing debian by /debiam, but even that continues to give an error. What does it mean to " type the following from the atlas source subdir: "?

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!
