.run file won't run

I’ve downloaded the current Ati driver (version 9.6) for my 4870, it’s a file with .run extension.

When I click this file in Dolphin, it stupidly launches KWrite? wtf!? :open_mouth:
I right-clicked the file, but just found other text editors to open it with, no option to run or install :silly:

How do you run this .run file? Shouldn’t it automatically run when you click it?

open a console
make the file executable - chmod +x /path/to/file/file.run

Also you may consider using the ATI driver from the repos instead
