Hi
Use sh before the file name eg;


sh googleearth.bin

You could also make it executable and then execute like this;


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 ?

"

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

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’ (http://www.real.com/linux)

chmod a+x filename.bin to make it executable

Hi
Looks like that one needs chmoding


chmod 755
../RealPlayer11GOLD.bin

As an aside, I would look at creating a download directory in your home
directory for firefox to download too.

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
Am I doing something wrong here? Thanks for the FF tip btw

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 :wink:

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 :O. Then I
followed yu210148’s guide and voila. The program is running
