I downloaded a CAD package, Medusa4 and am trying to figure out how to install in Ubuntu 10.10. The file is in my download directory and is named medusa4_v5_0_1_linux_personal.sh
The website instructions are quite vague and I'm a very new user, trying to break free of windows. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks

It is a shell script. If it already has execute permissions you should be able to double click it and it will give you the choice of running it. If it just brings it up in an editor, you need to make it executable - you can do that from the Properties option. Then double click and run it.

That was fast and easy. Thanks for the help, cjhabs!
