    Install puzzle pirates

    Hello, I have recently upgraded to the latest ubuntu and I want to install puzzle pirates. On the puzzle pirates site it tells you to download the file, open a terminal window and run the installer program. % sh yohoho-install.bin Then follow the instructions in the installer.

    I tried this and it wouldn't work. how can i get the add/remove programme to install the file I downloaded?

    thanks.

    I think you may be in the wrong directory, when you open a terminal, you will be in ~/ meaning your home directory, but by default firefox downloads get saved in the desktop folder, so we need to change directory, in a terminal run the following commands, the first change directory
    Code:
    cd ~/Desktop
    and the second runs the installer
    Code:
    sh yohoho-install.bin
    Hope this helps,

    EDIT: Notice that ~/Desktop is case sensitive, capital 'D'
