Ubuntu 9.10 - How to execute a .run program?


Let me know how to execute a program. run Ubuntu 9.10 (what are the drivers for my video card)

Ubuntu tries to open with Wine, but I can not find "the interpreter installation" somehow to select the default application.


Open a terminal, go to the directory where your. run, make it executable (ls-l), otherwise give it executable:

chmod u + x your_program.run

Guns it:

sudo. / your_program.run


Thanks to jipicy for this tip.
