1. sudo git clone /opt/exploit-database

2. sudo ln -sf /opt/exploit-database/searchsploit /usr/local/bin/searchsploit

3. cp -n /opt/exploit-database/.searchsploit_rc ~/

4. vim ~/.searchsploit_rc put the comment on all lines in Papers section with # (you may also remove-delete entire Papers section if you want)
<Esc> :wq (save the changes and quit)

That's it, updating database is with command
sudo searchsploit -u

Help section
searchsploit -h

Option: If you want to install Database-papers then forgot step 4 and don't do that, but you must install it first.
sudo git clone /opt/exploit-database-papers

Enjoy  ;)
