    How to run this file: "Savage2-2.1.0.8-linux-installer.run"?

    HelloI have downloaded this file "Savage2-2.1.0.8-linux-installer.run".
    But I can't run it.
    I typed in the terminal "sudo sh Savage2-2.1.0.8-linux-installer.run" and it says end of file unexpected (expecting ")").

    What should I do?

    SH is only used for script files. For example "sh install.sh"

    What you want to do is this:
    Code:
    ./Savage2-2.1.0.8-linux-installer.run
    Or if you really need the sudo part, then:
    Code:
    sudo ./Savage2-2.1.0.8-linux-installer.run
    Better yet though, why not run it like a normal GUI program? Right click the installer, and go to Properties. Click the Permissions tab and tick "Allow executing file as a program".

    Now just double click the installer.run and it will run in a GUI form with Next buttons and all. I hope this helps a bit
