How To: Install .bin files

In Ubuntu on May 10, 2008 at 10:22 pm

OK, I know a lot of Ubuntu users are baffled by .bin files, so I’m gonna show you how to install them. It’s actually very easy, I will be using Print Screen to show you step by step instructions on how to install them. I will use Google Earth as an example.

1. First, download the file (I choose Google Earth)

2. Then open up a command line and “cd” into the directory in which the downloaded file is in.

3. Afterwards type the following command:

chmod +x *filename*.bin && ./*filename*.bin

4. It will run a script and open up a GUI interface setup, just follow it and you’re done! It will put an icon on your desktop.

  1. That;s actually perfect, man. Worked for me with Linpus too!

  2. I’m new with Linpus and this worked out fine. Thanks for this blog. 🙂
