Hi,

I have recently downloaded and installed Linux Mandrake 8.0.  I am an absolute beginner when it comes to Linux.

I have downloaded JBuilder 4 Foundation for Linux, I have uncrompressed it, but I cannot run a .bin file.  How do I run it!

The file name is called fnd_linux_install.bin

How can I run this using the console?  However, I would prefer to do this by just clicking on the icon in the Konquerer program!

Any information would be gratefully received in running the file.

Thanks in advance.

David.

at the command line, go to th directory where the file is and try to type;

chmod +x fnd_linux_install.bin
./find_linux_install.bin

If that doesn't do it, then nothing will! :)

Good luck.
