    Hi
    Use sh before the file name eg;
    Code:
    sh googleearth.bin
    You could also make it executable and then execute like this;
    Code:
    chmod 755 googleearth.bin
    ../googleearth.bin

    depends on what it is. Some can be run by making them executable,some can be installed via CLI & some just copy/paste to the location. What is the file name ?

    Use sh before the file name eg;
    Code:

    sh googleearth.bin
    "
    when I use sh and the files name it says that there is no such file. What do I do in that case?

    Maybe it would help if you knew a little more.
    I need to install Real Player 11 since Kaffine is out of order and Realplayer 10 which Yast tells me is installed but it doesn't start. So I download Realplayer 11 the linux version from their website. Then Firefox saved it as RealPlayer11GOLD.bin on my desktop. If you single click on it ask which program to start with this file. If I look at Properties I find

    General
    RealPlayer11GOLD.bin
    Type: Exacutable File
    Location: /home/Mattias/Desktop
    Size: 7.5 MB

    What do I have to do to get it working?

    Why not use the rpm ? it's on their web-page RealPlayer for Linux - the best audio and video player - Real.com

    Hi
    Looks like that one needs chmoding
    Code:
    chmod 755
    ../RealPlayer11GOLD.bin
    As an aside, I would look at creating a download directory in your home
    directory for firefox to download too.
