Step 2: Download the ns-allinone-3.20.tar.bz2 from the http://www.nsnam.org website.
Step 3: Copy the file to the /home/user/  and execute the commands one by one by opening the terminal
pradeep@localhost $] tar jxvf ns-allinone-3.20.tar.bz2
pradeep@localhost $] cd ns-allinone-3.20/
pradeep@localhost $] ./build.py --enable-examples --enable-tests


This process will take some amount of time to get it installed. Once installation is over, check a simple program to test whether ns3 is working,

pradeep@localhost $] cd ns-allinone-3.20/ns-3.20/
pradeep@localhost $] ./waf --run hello-simulator
ns3
ns3 hello simulator output
see the above output "Hello Simulator" that indicates the ns3 is installed and the output of a given example is shown.

To test other scripts or examples of ns3, you can go to the folder
~ns-3.20/examples/tutorial/ 
there are quite number of .cc files of various network. For example, you can copy the first.cc file to ~ns-3.20/scratch/ 
Once copied, execute the command from the ~ns-3.20/ folder.
pradeep@localhost $] cd ns-allinone-3.20/ns-3.20
pradeep@localhost $]./waf --run scratch/first
Waf: Entering directory `/home/nsnam/ns-allinone-3.20/ns-3.20/build'
Waf: Leaving directory `/home/nsnam/ns-allinone-3.20/ns-3.20/build'
'build' finished successfully (1.564s)
