Copy "ss" to prefix/bin (where prefix is usually /usr/local), and *.pm files in prefix/lib/ss (/usr/local/lib/ss/Maps.pm etc). "ss" should be executable.
For each user create ~/.ssrc (mode 600), containing:
Where HOME is an absolute path to an existing directory that will contain your SourceSafe projects, and MAP is an association list of directories to databases (see the MAP configuration reference).
In the above example we assume that ss will have control of all the /home/username/projects tree, and the directory /home/username/projects/dirname will actually contain the db/projectname project (where you recall DB was configured server-side as C:\\DATA\\SSAFE_DB, yielding C:\DATA\SSAFE_DB $/projectname in SourceSafe syntax).
Execute ss get to bootstrap your tree.
