Make it executable with command

Code: Select all

chmod a+x filename.bin


Then just run it.

Code: Select all

./filename.bin

And do not forget: If you want a system-wide installation for all users then run the file as root.

yes, run random software downloaded from the internet as root!

Isn't it amazing how so many people can type "linuxpakistan.net" into their browsers but not "google.com"?

Why do you think I wrote: "If you want a system-wide installation..."?

in most cases, you can make the install directory writable by a normal user, and then install the package. you only need to be root to create the install directory and chown it. some packages may ask you to run a chown or chmod command as root during the install.

running anything you've downloaded, even if it's just a configure script in a package, as root -- really bad idea.

Yes, I agree. But I do not think that anyone here will be careless enough to install software from unknown sources. :roll:
