Can some one please help me I am new to ubuntu. I cannot install the catalyst run file it keeps telling me to install as super user. I checked that box under permisions and it still fails I even ran it as sudu command in terminal but it still gives me same message.

Install it from a terminal.

Make sure it is what you want to install since there is no uninstall (that I know of) once you've installed it.

Applications -> Accessories -> Terminal

cd ~/Desktop
chmod +x filename.run
sudo ./filename.run
Assuming that file, filename.run, is on your desktop.

Hey btw Derran, remember if this happens with another program you are trying to install, you can always access your user account privileges in System Settings > Users and Groups. Cheers!
