To install a script individually, drag and drop the macro link (*.lym file) to KLayout's main window. If this is not possible - for example, because your KLayout instance does not have a network connection - download this file and put it into the "macros" folder of KLayout's home directory (usuall $HOME/.klayout/macros on Linux and %HOME%/KLayout/macros on Windows. After restarting KLayout, you should see the new example in the macro development IDE.
All example scripts will register themselves in the "Macros" menu in the "Examples" sub-menu.
