Ubuntu :: How To Make Downloaded File Into Program

Jul 1, 2011

I recently downloaded eclipse IDE and Seamonkey, which are both currently executable files, but they do not show up under 'applications' on the top panel. Is there any way for me to change this such that they can appear under 'Applications' in any of the subcategories?

Ubuntu Installation :: Make An Downloaded Program "Thunderbird 3" Function

May 19, 2010

I had been having problems with Thunderbird 3, so decided to install I carefully cleaned out all the 3.0 files. So I downloaded it. Opened it with tar and can see that there is now a Thunderbird folder with all inside of it. But how do I make it run?

If I use "whereis" to locate the file to make it run, it says it is in /etc but i sure can't see it. There is a thunderbird file that seems to be the one in the thunderbird folder, but double clicking and mark "run" does nothing.

Ubuntu :: Unable To Install Downloaded Program

Jul 10, 2010

I am in the process of moving all my data from Windows to Ubuntu. So far everything has gone well and I am very impressed with Ubuntu and regret not doing this years ago.

One program is giving problems. It is a program called Sharescope and I pay a subscription for it and it runs in my Windows partition. I downloaded Wine and then downloaded Sharescope three times but when I click to install it comes up with the following message;

Archive: /home/johnlaptop/Downloads/SSGoldFull(3).EXE

End-of-central-directory signature not found. Either this file is not a zipfile, or it constitutes one disk of a multi-part archive. In the latter case the central directory and zipfile comment will be found on the last disk(s) of this archive. zipinfo: cannot find zipfile directory in one of /home/johnlaptop/Downloads/SSGoldFull(3).EXE or /home/johnlaptop/Downloads/SSGoldFull(3).EXE.zip, and cannot find /home/johnlaptop/Downloads/SSGoldFull(3).EXE.ZIP, period.

I contacted Sharescope and they said it was a permission issue in Ubuntu. Is there any way to install this program or will I have to work with it in Windows?

Ubuntu :: Program Downloaded Via WINE Removal Or MDAC?

Jan 24, 2010

As a newbie, I'll probably be asking some absurd questions. I'm running Ubuntu 9.10. I downloaded Movie Organizer 2.7.7 and installed it with WINE. Now it will not run because it needs MDAC. Is there an MDAC program available which might help? Otherwise, how can I remove this program? It is not listed under installed programs in the Ubuntu Software Center, but is under the Applications as an "other" program.

Ubuntu :: Make A Boot-able CD From A Downloaded 10.04?

Dec 31, 2010

I'm trying to make a boot-able CD from a downloaded 10.04 (amd64) iso file. I downloaded the iso file and burned the CD according to the instructions on the ubuntu site. The CD would not boot and the only message was ISOLINUX .... then the computer shut down. Re-downloaded the iso file, re-burned CD, same result. Installed new CD drive, re-burned, same result. What I'm I missing? I'm fairly new to Linux but have been using 8.04-10.04 for about six months. I'm trying to make a boot-able Live CD so I can do a clean install on a new HD.

Ubuntu :: Downloaded The Demo Of Penumbra Overture, It Is A .sh File (113Mb) Can't Open The File?

Jun 2, 2010

I downloaded the demo of Penumbra Overture, it is a .sh file (113Mb). I can't open the file. In a terminal I ran chmod +x PenumbraOvertureDemo-2553.sh and then sudo ./PenumbraOvertureDemo-2553.sh and I get an error "./PenumbraOvertureDemo-2553.sh: 2: Syntax error: "(" unexpected" . The quotation marks are my own. Is the file corrupted? One of my lugmates thinks it might be a shar file, but Karmic says that it is a shell script. Another friend says that it is too large to be a shell script. Here is the code:

john@john-laptop:~$ cd /home/john/00
john@john-laptop:~/00$ chmod +x PenumbraOvertureDemo-2553.sh
john@john-laptop:~/00$ sudo ./PenumbraOvertureDemo-2553.sh

Ubuntu :: Make With Make File Yields Error - /usr/bin/javac: Cannot Execute Binary File

Nov 17, 2010

When I try to compile some Java code on Ubuntu 10.10 (kernel 2.6+) using make and a Makefile.

I get an error indicating that the make utility cannot execute the java compile command (javac).

The error reads: /bin/bash: line 6: .: /usr/local/jdk1.5.0_18/bin/javac: cannot execute binary file

I am executing make as root. I have enabled permissions on all directories in the path /usr/local/jdk1.5.0_18/bin/javac and on javac itself.

I get this error whether using a jdk installed via ubuntu apt-get, or whether I install the jdk myself. And I get it using either Java 1.5 or 1.6

My machine has an 80386 processor. I notice the make utility is built for i686-pc-linux-gnu

However, I can manually compile using javac.

I can compile calling javac from within a bash script.

I can compile using the java compiler gcj from the command line: gcj --main=HelloWorld HelloWorld.java -o HelloWorld.exe

But I cannot compile java code from the makefile. Any reasons why I might be getting this error?

Ubuntu :: Downloaded ISO File - Errors While Installing

Mar 28, 2010

I have been having problems with Ubuntu. I just downloaded it yesterday and burned it to CD. However, when attempting to install it, I get errors. Unfortunately, I cannot recall the exact error but it stops the install. I will give further information later but wanted to ask if anyone has heard of this happening and if so, what the problems might be? I checked it with the MD5 and it appears to be a valid file, but the disk is giving me errors!
