    Hello, I am trying to follow the installation instructions and am using Mint. For the # pip install docopt pygments command I get the following message

    Collecting docopt
    Downloading docopt-0.6.2.tar.gz
    Could not import setuptools which is required to install from a source distribution.

    Please install setuptools.

    Is that part of docopt?

    I am using Kubuntu 14.04 LTS AMD64. In the yakuake terminal I added the EDITOR environment variable to .bashrc and then “quit” the terminal. After that whenever I hit F12 and yakuake dropped down the .bashrc changes were read in. I also created a cheatsheet for cheat and named it cheatsheet to prevent any confusion with cheat.

    This works brilliantly under arch ARM, really improving my bash experience.

    Hi Avishek ,

    This works great thanks.
    one remark (don’t know if it is already made) :
    export EDITOR =/usr/bin/nano is ok but export EDITOR =/usr/bin/nano
    is not ok (in the last example there is a space between EDITOR and the = sign)
    this space is also on this webpage.

    You may want to put in your article that for all the commands and instructions to work as you have displayed them, you need elevated privileges. As an alternative and for those of us that enjoy the security of not being elevated all the time you may want to ad sudo where needed. This was required for several of your instructions. Also in some systems there is no .bashrc in the usr directory and instead the file will be named dot.bashrc and is in a subdirectory of the usr directory. Important to be clear about file locations.
