Linux Newbie need help!

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
I am running fedora 6, attempting to install software. I am terribly new to linux and well, just dont know what is going on. I am loving the interface, everything is ridiculously fast, I just dont know how to install anything, lol.

The software was delivered as one folder with several subfolders, bin doc fonts icons include keys lib... What am i supposed to be looking for within these folders?

pls somebody help lol

Edit, NVM Just found it, I dont think that will run on fedora, its built for mac.

As far as I know thats probably the only type of software out like that, there is a "alternate" OSX version that will run on Intel chips now, look around for that, you should be able to find it pretty easy

lol see this is where i am confused, there are a bunch of folders with a crap load of files. there are a few .exe files in the bin subfolder along with some C shell scripts (that is where i started looking). I have tried clicking them all as well as launching them from the terminal. On a couple i get "permission denied" in the terminal.

do you have anything that says setup.rb or .c or .h ? also are you logged in as root? most installers on linux have to be ran from command line.
