    Permission denied/ command not found

    Hey guys,
    I get in this trouble for several times.

    When I try to install a newly downloaded software with command line, I get stuck with an information like "Permission denied" or "command not found". Even I use "sudo ./mduml", I cannot get over this problem. Would please help me to solve this problem?

    That file you are trying to run is allowed to be executed?

    Code:
    $ chmod +x mduml

    The command is

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install <name-of-package>
    Is that what your using?

    If you are new, stick to Ubuntu Software Center (or apt-get) until you have more experience.

    When you try to run a program in the terminal and it gives "Permission Denied" you need to give the file execute permission.

    To reduce "file not found" typing mistakes, try dragging the file into the terminal instead of typing its name or path.
    I try to treat the cause, not the symptom. I avoid the terminal in instructions, unless it's easier or necessary. My instructions will work within the Ubuntu system, instead of breaking or subverting it. Those are the three guarantees to the helpee.

    it would help if you gave us the commands you're using, as we can only give vague answers to vague questions
