If you're using Ubuntu or its derivatives like Linux Mint, you can install pre-compiled binaries of my codes from the command line. You'll then get new versions of the codes automatically when they are released. To enable this, you need to add my Personal Package Archive to your list of software sources as follows:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nebulousresearch/ppa sudo apt-get update
Then, you can install my codes with commands like
sudo apt-get install neat
I've also packaged a few other codes. They are available for all currently supported releases of Ubuntu and Linux Mint, except for nebular which is not available in Ubuntu 14.04.

|intrat||-||Storey & Hummer (1995)|
|bhmie||github.com/hyperion-rt/bhmie||Bohren & Huffman (1983), wrapper by Robitaille (2011)|
If you want to install them all, you can do
sudo apt-get install nebulousresearch
alfa, neat and mocassin have been accepted into the Debian repositories so will be available in the next releases of Debian, Ubuntu, Linux Mint and other derivatives without needing to enable the PPA. Further technical details such as build logs etc are available at the PPA webpage.
