git clone
cd ~/KlipperScreen

This script will install packages that are listed under manual install, create a python virtual environment at ~/.KlipperScreen-env and install a systemd service file.

If you need a custom location for the configuration file, you can add -c or --configfile to the systemd file and specify the location of your configuration file.

At this point KlipperScreen should be working, check out the hardware page if you still haven't installed the screen, or head to the troubleshooting page if you are having problems
