Basic install question


Why do some programs that do not require the ./configure procedure when installing say: bash: run: command not found

For example, I downloaded a program called ProQuake (http://www.fileplanet.com/dl/dl.asp?...e/sqpro350.zip) because I'm trying to run a dedicated netquake server. All the zip file contained was 4 files which included:
pq_manual.txt
pq_readme.txt
sqpro
sqpro_readme.txt

I extracted all the files into a directory /usr/local/games/quake/ and on the command line I tried simply:
"sqpro -dedicated" and I got that error "bash: run: command not found"


So what am I missing? Obviously the executable is there in that directory, why is it not running?

Thanks in advance.

hi!
Did you try "./sqpro -dedicated" (with "./" if you are in the same directory)?

Regards
