(this is all referring to Linux install)
I was very frustrated the first time I tried to install your software many months ago and could never get it working. I gave up on it.
I have downloaded it fresh and I still CANNOT get it to install.
Your instructions in "PyPI_Instructions.txt" are 100 times more complicated than they should be. I have been developing linux software for decades. How about a SINGLE install file without having to read pages of install instructions.
I download your files, I see "setup_linux.py", that makes sense, so I try to run it. NOTHING, it just sits there.
In the "PyPI_Instructions.txt" there are lines that start with "#", this is a LINUX comment line, so it is unclear if that line is supposed to be run or not.
what is "Upload the package to PyPI:"
I dont want to upload any software to anyplace. I dont even know if it is working, why would I want to upload your software to some repository. Thats your job.
I have 40+ years software development experience, but zero on Python, it appears to me anyway that you need to be an ADVANCED python user to understand any of this.

After reading many pages of your documentation, I found where it says
pip3 install planetary-system-stacker
And I get
user@user-Latitude-E6520:~$ pip3 install planetary-system-stacker
Traceback (most recent call last):

SyntaxError: invalid syntax
I have the latest version of python, at least when I do an "apt-get install python3" it says I have the latest version (Python 3.5.2)
