# Setup¶

## Installation¶

Installation is easy. After cloning the project onto your machine, simply use the setup.py file:

$git clone https://github.com/tgsmith61591/skutil.git$ cd skutil


## Troubleshooting Installation Issues¶

Skutil depends on the ability to compile Fortran code. For different platforms, there are different ways to install gcc:

• Mac OS (this may take a while):
brew install gcc


There is a bug in some setups that will still cause issues in symlinking the gcc files via homebrew. If this is the case, the following line should clear things up:

brew link --overwrite gcc

• Linux:
sudo apt-get install gcc
