    linux-rq6t:/home/Mattias # chmod 755
    /home/Mattias/Desktop/Realplayer11GOLD.bin
    chmod: cannot access `/home/Mattias/Desktop/Realplayer11GOLD.bin': No
    such file or directory

    linux-rq6t:/home/Mattias # chmod 755 ../RealPlayer11GOLD.bin
    chmod: cannot access `../RealPlayer11GOLD.bin': No such file or
    directory

    Hi
    Just copy it to your home directory rather than the desktop, change it
    as your user not root! As said in an earlier post use the rpm it's much
    easy

    Should just be a matter of cd'ing into the directory where the .bin file
    is then doing the chmod.

    Say for example the .bin file is in a directory called
    /home/Mattias/download. Open a terminal and type:

    Code:
    --------------------

    cd /home/Mattias/download

    --------------------


    then do an 'ls' just to double check that it's there.
    Assuming that it shows up in the listing you should be able to make it
    executable with:


    Code:
    --------------------

    chmod u+x *.bin

    --------------------


    After that you should be able to run it with:


    Code:
    --------------------

    ./RealPlayer11GOLD.bin

    Code:
    --------------------


    The only reason I can think of for this not to work would be if the file was owned by a different user. You can check this with

    Code:
    --------------------

    cd /home/Mattias/download
    ls -l

    --------------------


    If it is owned by another user then the chmod could be done by root:

    Code:
    --------------------

    su
    <enter root password>
    chmod o+x

    --------------------


    Alternatively, you could change the ownership of the file as root.

    If you do the chmod as root it may be a good idea to exit out of root before running the binary, especially if it's an unknown binary.

    Well take it off the desktop and put it in a proper directory aka your
    home directory then run the file.

    Moving the file away from the desktop actually helped . Then I
    followed yu210148's guide and voila. The program is running
