Autodock Tools (ADT) and Python Imaging Library (PIL) Installation on Ubuntu 32-bit

I was struggled installing this Autodock Tools on Ubuntu for days, because of the Python Imaging Library issues ("decoder jpeg not available|" and "decoder zip not available"). Ubuntu and all its stuff is actually quiet new to me since i've been working on Windows for ages.
Anyway, i wrote down the steps to solve my issues here:

1st step---
Before you're moving too far to install MGLTools, first it's better to figure out your Python Imaging Library (PIL) installation. If you have installed PIL then you need to :

sudo pip uninstall PIL
sudo apt-get install build-essential python-dev zlib1g-dev liblcms1-dev libjpeg8 libjpeg62-dev libfreetype6 libfreetype6-dev

sudo ln -s /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/ /usr/lib
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/ /usr/lib
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/ /usr/lib

sudo pip install -U PIL

Now we're done with installing PIL. Next---
2nd step---
Download the MGLTools officially from here and install MGLTools by typing this instructions:

gunzip mgltools_i86Linux2_1.5.4.tar.gz
tar xvf mgltools_i86Linux2_1.5.4.tar

cd mgltools_i86Linux2_1.5.4

Just choose Non-commercial use for the license agreement then after it has been installed, try to call the Autodock Tools by:


Mine works very well. :) Good luck!
