Installing the AVR toolchain for use on MPLAB X IDE

Hi, I wanted to know how to install the AVR tool chain so I can write code inside MPLAB X IDE the same I do in Atmel Studio to later compile and program the device with my Atmel Ice. I tried installing the tool chain (https://www.microchip.com...oolchains-c-compilers) and then put the install location on "add" from the toolchain menu on options/embedded inside mplab X, but never worked... so any help would be very appreciated.

On choosing the directory and adding it, the bin folder directory's address is the one that should be used.

Hi,
 
Do you want to compile code for 8bits AVRs ?
If so, just install XC8 v2.xx, it includes both PIC and AVR compilers
 
Regards

Thanks for all of your responses,
 
And yes, I want to compile to 8 Bit AVR MCUs, is there any major difference between using XC8 and the compiler used in atmel studio?
I will try and use XC8, if anything goes strange I will be posting!, thanks again.
