    These programs may not work in linux. It wouldn't let me see if they have a linux version without registering but I'm going to assume that they don't. You'll have to try and run them with wine. Just install wine and then try and install the program like you normally would in windows. It will show up in applications > wine > programs.

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install wine

    If they do a native Linux version, it might be better to install this rather than run the Windows version in Wine. However, since we ordinary mortals can't get to the download page to see what's available, you're going to have to provide more information.

    As you're new to Ubuntu, I'll explain. Different Linux versions use different installer packages. For Ubuntu, you need an installer package with the .deb filename extension. These are for Debian and Debian-based distros like Ubuntu. Or, if they do a specific Ubuntu .deb package, get that. Don't get a package with a .rpm extension. These are for distros like Fedora, Suse and Mandriva. And don't get a .tar.gz, tar.bz2 or .tgz package. These are source code packages. You don't want to be messing with source code just yet.

    If they do an Ubuntu .deb package, simply download it to your desktop and double-click on it. If it needs dependencies (other things like libraries) it will say so. If not it will just install itself.

    Otherwise, tell us more about what Linux packages are available.

    when you open that zip file it contains all these folders and files in it

    -FOLDERS-
    Bitmaps
    Config
    Jars
    Logs
    Scripts


    -TXT FILES-
    Headers.txt
    key.txt

    -OTHER FILES-
    Install.bat
    install.sh
    log4j.properties

    Nice. install.sh is a shell script which should install everything automatically. Extract all the files to a folder and double click install.sh. It should say something like 'do you want to run this as an executable'. click yes and hopefully it will install successfuly. Let us know how it goes.

    When i extract to a folder, i click on the install.sh file to install it.

    and a window opens up and says this on it.

    java -cp .:./jars/install.jar Install $*
    chmod a+x run.sh compile.sh

    Re: Need Help Installing a Program

    ok so i finally got it to install somehow, and i chose the linux version of it.. but when i click run.sh as an executable file, it opens a window and then closes and wont run the program.

    in the window that opens up it says>

    log4j:INFO Using URL [file:/home/homedawg/Desktop/Nexus/log2j.properties for automatic log4j configuration of repository named [default].

    i dont know what that means lol and after that it closes and nothing else happens
