cd ~
wget http://ftp.drupal.org/files/projects/drush-7.x-5.9.tar.gz
tar xvf drush-7.x-5.9.tar.gz 

Now we add the drush paths to our .bash_profile.

vi .bash_profile 

Paste the following in toward the top:

# drush start #
 
export DRUSH_PHP="/usr/bin/php5"
export COLUMNS
alias drush="/usr/bin/php5 ~/drush/drush.php"
alias php="/usr/bin/php5"
 
# drush end # 

Save the file (type ":x")

Your bash_profile should look like this:

# .bash_profile
 
 
# drush start #
 
export DRUSH_PHP="/usr/bin/php5"
export COLUMNS
alias drush="/usr/bin/php5 ~/drush/drush.php"
alias php="/usr/bin/php5"
 
# drush end # 
 
# Get the aliases and functions
if [ -f ~/.bashrc ]; then
        . ~/.bashrc
fi
 
# User specific environment and startup programs
 
PATH=$PATH:$HOME/bin
 
export PATH

Make sure to apply the changes to bash:

source .bash_profile

Now test--you should get a long list of commands.
