    Talking HOW TO: Bypass non executable program

    Im a newb to linux and this one really threw me for a loop. There are a few other threads responding to this but they are not done in 2 day linux language.

    When you are attempting to install software from an outside source whether it be a cd, usb or ext drive you will get the not an executable file error. The remedy to this is quite simple.

    When using a cd you will have a additional step that does not exist with usb, or ext HDD

    Step 1:
    Copy the data from the cd to a folder on your deskop.

    Step 2:
    Right click the .exe file within the folder and click properties then click permissions

    Under permissions you will see a check box that says allow executing file as a program. Check that box and close the window.

    Step 3:
    Use the ubuntu software center to get wine which is a windows interface.

    Step4:
    Install your software as you normally would by double clicking it and follow the normal installation procedures


    Hope this helps.
