I think it's possible that either installing Subversion or running python is the step giving the OP problems if he's having trouble with the site's directions. Can you expand on those a little (i.e., how to install Subversion and how to get to the correct directory where the script would be located)? – Christopher Kyle Horton Jan 10 '12 at 15:16
The python bit was specific to artillery - on re-reading I realised the OP was just looking at SET. So I have added a link for installing subversion. – Rory Alsop Jan 10 '12 at 15:36
can you tech me step by step in to install his.What is subversion? – ie h Julian ec Jan 11 '12 at 4:12
@iehJulianec The specific command to install Subversion (a revision control program) via the Terminal is sudo apt-get install subversion, as provided by the top answer of the linked question. Alternatively, it can be found by searching for it in the Ubuntu Software Center. You need Subversion in order to run the command listed in the above answer, which checks out a copy of the software repository containing SET. – Christopher Kyle Horton Jan 11 '12 at 5:57
