  1. From your console run the following command with out the quotation marks 
    "sudo apt-get install subversion build-essential liblzo2-dev ncurses-dev zlib1g-dev uuid-dev"
  2. Next we need to download the Switchfin source run the following command without quotation marks
    "svn co https://switchfin.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/switchfin/switchfin/trunk/ switchfin"
