Before we can install SickChill. We first need to install Python. We do this by executing the following command.

Then enter your root password.

Now go to your home directory. or any other directory. No we are going to download SickChill.

cd ~
sudo -u sickrage git clone https://github.com/SickChill/SickChill.git /opt/sickrage .sickchill

SickChill is downloaded. SickChill is downloaded to the folder “.sickchill”. The dot is for hidden folder.

We now go to the folder of SickChill. We need to rename autoProcessTV.cfg.sample, to autoProcessTV.cfg. So that we can start using the script. So that SickChill your tv shows renames to the right name.

cd ~/.sickchill
cp -a autoProcessTV/autoProcessTV.cfg.sample autoProcessTV/autoProcessTV.cfg

python ~/.sickbeard/SickBeard.py

sudo nano /etc/default/sickbeard

The following settings should be in this file. The file you just created.

# COPY THIS FILE TO /etc/default/sickbeard
SB_HOME=/home/je_gebruikers_naam/.sickchill/
SB_DATA=/home/je_gebruikers_naam/.sickchill/
SB_USER=your username

Now press Ctrl + x key. To save this.
