I want to install Kristaps Kaupe’s scripts on my bitcoin.conf but I am afraid I don't have the technical expertise necessary to make it run.

I am simply cutting and pasting it on my bitcoin.conf file, but I get an error from the start, I am sure I have to change somethings on the script in order to point to the right directory.
