Can't run a Jar File or App


Hi , I need to install or run a jar app, & I am having a bit of trouble understanding how to run it.
The file itself is called " openproj-1.1.zip " which I have moved to my Desktop for easy terminal or "cd to ' access or so I thought
I dont get how to got to the terminal to run it etc.as I get "No such file or directory".
These are the instructions given for running on Linux.

"Open a terminal, go to the openproj folder and run ./openproj.sh"

In other words "How do I go to the folder" in a terminal, I know how to cd to a Directory like my Desktop but not a folder.
Thanks anyone

The file is a zip archive. You need to uncompress it first. Open a terminal window, type in:

cd $HOME/Desktop
unzip openproj-1.1.zip

You should now see the openproj folder, underneath the $HOME/Desktop folder. "cd" into it, and run the shell script.

Thanks, you were right about unzipping first, I had to " chmod +x openproj.sh " to get permissions.
Worked well.
Thanks for help.
