How do you run a setup.su file in ubuntu?

I am working on an open source program called OCSInventory.  I am unable to run the setup.su file from terminal.  I'm not sure if I have unzipped it correctly or I'm missing a LAMP component.  Please advise.

The file should be executable, to check that try:

sh ./setup.sh

If that does not work, can you post the error you get?

Change into the directory where you download the setup.sh file, then:

the error is 'No such file or directory' when typing chmod +x setup.sh
'Can't open /setup.sh' when typing sh ./setup.sh
I extracted the .tar file in the GUI and it downloaded it to the desktop folder.

You have to change to the directory where you've extracted the tar file. Be sure that you're in the folder where setup.sh is placed. You can also open that sub-folder on the desktop and see if the setup.sh file is there.
