View Full Version : [ubuntu] Help run executible text file

July 8th, 2008, 02:50 PM
So I downloaded Puzzle Pirates (after much research on bin files and the terminal...) and I finally got it! But when I double clicked nothing happened. I went to the file that starts it (yohoho) and it said something like "do you want to run yohoho or display its contents?" I tried like all the options. Then I restarted my computer and it said the same thing but then its had a window (opening file) but it doesn't open... help please ^__^

What did you do to install it?

if it's a bin file, you usually open a terminal, type:

cd [the folder it's in]

chmod +x [Name of Bin file].bin

sudo ./[Bin File].bin

What I did was
chmod +x yohoho-install.bin
Then it started the install thingy even though I had to lead it to the folder java was in.
