1b. ALTERNATIVELY, you can go here(external link) and download repository as a zip, move it where you want, and extract it

2. go to the RSTLite directory you just created and execute
./install.sh


3. Either reset your terminal, open a new one, or source ~/.bashrc

4. It is finished. Rejoice.

5. OPTIONAL: you can create a link to it with a nicer name, eg /rst or ~/rst like so
