Open up a terminal and navigate to where your download is. Then run these commands...replacing "filename" with the name of your program.


sudo chmod +x filename.bin
./filename.bin

Probably the other way around


chmod a+x foo.bin
sudo ./foo.bin

It just says. "chmod: cannot access `Savage2Install-2.1.0-i686.bin': No such file or directory"

The file is probably not where you're expecting it to be. If it's on your desktop, do cd Desktop beforehand.

You have to direct the terminal to the folder containing the file first.

Your terminal starts in the home folder. For example, if the bin is your Downloads folder, you'd type the following.

cd Downloads
chmod +x file.bin
sudo ./file.bin

The only popular bins I know of are Java and Google Earth. What kind of application are you installing that needs a bin? There might be an alternative means of getting the software.

That .bin file is might be a disk image. You will have to create a virtual drive to mount it. Almost same as windows.

Follow the link.. It has always worked for me....

I also have problems installing GoogleEarthLinux.bin. I get a message: Verifying archive integrity...Error in MD5 checksums: 23a82662ebe98d12f2bb0f9a9c9de3ac is different from c82b570db6dfc519d065b8b1a3b69511
Tried to download from diferent sites, always the same result. Anybody knows something about it?

Why are you checking the MD5sum?
Place the google eart file in the Home folder, the open a terminal and run
chmod +x Google* then right click the Google file and then open with other application.. and then click enter custom command and then enter sh, then click Open.

I've downloaded the file again and repeated the procedure. It works fine. Thanks a lot!
