    echo 'USERNAME ALL=(ALL) ALL' >> /etc/sudoers
    where USERNAME is your user name.
  3. Type sudo su and log in.
  4. Change directory (ls & cd) to the correct location of the agent installer .sh file.
  5. Type sh AGENTFILE.sh (where AGENTFILE is the filename of your agent setup file for linux.)
  6. If you are prompted at all during the installation (it may ask if you wish to install mono), respond with Y.
