    Default Xenonauts: how to install

    Hi, it's me again. Now... I've just downloaded Xenonauts from gog.com

    I thought I'd download the Linux native version rather that rely on WINE this time. But the file I got was a .sh file. Which is something I have never come across before. Quick google told me that I had to install it via Terminal. But all I got was:

    Code:
    bash: ./gog_xenonauts_2.1.0.4.sh: Permission denied
    Any help as always is appreciated.

    You may only execute a file when the x-permission bit is set.

    Code:
    chmod u+x gog_xenonauts_2.1.0.4.sh
    And next time, please do not only post the output, but also the line before it (that contains the prompt and the command) and best also the line after (the new prompt).

    Then we all can see what you did, where you did it and who you were and that it is complete. Now we have only the results from an unknown action.

    Need to set run permission on the file.

    In Linux files do not run unless given permission to do so.

    Thank you.

    And I'll bear that in mind for future posts. I have to admit that even though I have been using OpenSUSE since 11.3, I am still learning. The terminal commands still elude me a little. But that is also why I love it.

    In state of adding unneeded comments to your report, you could have used that time to make your report show us something. So copy/patse what tyou do from the CLI complete (prompt and command line, all output, also if it is empty, the new prompt line) between CODE tags (the # button in the post editor). Only saying that "it does not work" is not information at all where anybody can start from to help you.

    Oops, my bad. But okay here goes. So if I type in Xenonauts into the terminal I get:


    Code:
    ingvar@linux-iagy:~> xenonauts
    If 'xenonauts' is not a typo you can use command-not-found to lookup the package that contains it, like this:
        cnf xenonauts
    When I had done the initial setup I got this:

    Code:
    ingvar@linux-iagy:~/Downloads> ./gog_xenonauts_2.1.0.4.sh
    Verifying archive integrity... All good.

    Which did open up the installation menu, which I went through. Gave me the option of putting an icon in the Applications menu and so on and so forth. Now I also followed Gog.com instructions and typed in ./start.sh in the folder where it was installed and got the following:

    Code:
    ingvar@linux-iagy:~/GOG Games/Xenonauts> start.sh
    If 'start.sh' is not a typo you can use command-not-found to lookup the package that contains it, like this:
        cnf start.sh
    ingvar@linux-iagy:~/GOG Games/Xenonauts> ./start.sh
