The document "Downloading the ADK Source" describe how to obtain the source material for the ADK. Before that, we have to install curl, git and repo. The steps below show how to install the tools and also ADK source in Ubuntu (13.04).

- Open Terminal.

- Install curl
$sudo apt-get install curl

- Install git
$sudo apt-get install git

- Then create bin/ directory in home directory, and include it in your path.
$mkdir ~/bin

- Install Repo
$curl > ~/bin/repo
$chmod a+x ~/bin/repo

- Finally, create a new directory for the downloaded ADK source files, initialize and synchronize a local repository:
