(new user) Ubuntu 9.10, cannot get programs to install
Hey, I started using Ubuntu a few days ago due to a classmates recommendation, and I simply cannot get this program I need for class to install.
Just to let you know I've googled the hell out of this question, and nothing seems to work. Or if it does, I don't know how to make it work.
I've got to install VMWare Server 2.0 for my class so we can make virtual computers and what not. But, no matter what I do I can't get it to install. Whenever I try to install it like I was told on various websites (here's one for examples sake (http://www.ubuntugeek.com/how-to-ins...10-karmic.html), I do this:
and get this:
Can't install perl script "./vmware-install.pl" : No such file or directory
I've tried putting in stuff like home/computername/Desktop/vmware-install.pl, but I still get the same problem. I've racked my brain and my browser trying to figure this out, but I've had no luck.

You must be in the same directory as the file you downloaded which you are executing. I don't know if you are i just want to add that to be sure you know it.
