    Installing software in ubuntu

    I have a disk with software for my printer/scanner, but I don't know how to install it.
    I Windows I should double click directly but I know that I have to do something here but I don't know what.
    Could someone help me?

    you have a disk with windows software and you are trying to install it on ubuntu.

    thats not necessary... most printers can be automatically added by going to system->administration->printing

    The folder says Linux, that why I think I can install (I know softare for Windows is not going to work)

    I have executable files.

    Try this
    .sh file is nothing but a shell script. The easiest way to run .sh shell script in Linux is as follows:
    sh file.sh
    bash file.sh


    Another option is set executable permission using chmod command:
    chmod +x file.sh
    Now run .sh file as follows: execute
    ./file.sh

    I did sh install.sh
    and I got

    libstdc++.so.5 (gcc 3.0.x .. 3.3.x) not found, install ... /sbin/ldconfig.real: Can't create temporary cache file /etc/ld.so.cache~: Permission denied
    done
    libtiff.so.3 not found, install ... /sbin/ldconfig.real: Can't create temporary cache file /etc/ld.so.cache~: Permission denied
    done
    ./i386/install/guiuninstall: error while loading shared libraries: libstdc++.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

    Ok you can probably just link libstdc++ and libtiff to the more recent versions. You also need to run this as root using sudo and entering your password.

    In a terminal do:
    Code:
    sudo ln -s /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6 /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.5
    sudo ln -s /usr/lib/libtiff.so.4 /usr/lib/libtiff.so.3
    sudo sh install.sh

    sudo sh install.sh
    I did work.

    Now the printer is working but the system doesn't recognize the scanner. Could you give me any help with that?
