    How to install .bin applications to Linux?

    Hey Guys

    Just very quickly how on earth do I go about installing .bin applications to a Linux machine. I have downloaded Adobe Reader and it has gone into my downloads folder automatically. I have gone into Terminal and typed the following:
    cd Downloads
    sudo ./AdobeReader.bin

    and it won't work keeps saying Command not Found...

    Any ideas? Maybe me being a wolly!

    you'll need to make it an executable.

    sudo chmod u+x ./AdobeReader.bin && sudo ./AdobeReader.bin

    Cheers mate but still won't work?
    cd Downloads
    sudo chmod u+x ./AdobeReader.bin && sudo ./AdobeReader.bin

    It asked me to enter password but then nothing happened and then when I try to run it again it still says Command Not Found?

    Try chmod a+x instead, I've sometimes had to use that instead of u+x.

    Are you running a 64bit version of Linux?

    for some 32 bit applications you need to install the 32bit libraries.

    Ubuntu/Debian:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install ia32-libs
