Did you run "chmod 755 u1_download" on that file first?

cannot execute the binary file

How do I install and use the downloader?

Download the script from http://ubuntuone.com/u1-downloader/u1-downloader.tar.gz
Open a terminal (open the dash menu and start writing terminal, and click on the icon)

THESE ARE THE INSTRUCTIONS I AM TRYING TO IMPLEMENT OR EXECUTE. THE "./u1_downloader" returned the "cannot execute a binary file". I tried chmod 755 but it did nothing. My OS is linux 13.10 and i am using a Terminal window.

***************

"Go to the folder where you downloaded the file (probably Downloads). To do this, type the following command and then press Enter: cd Downloads

Next, run this command to uncompress the program: tar zxf u1-downloader.tar.gz

Go to the program's newly-created directory by running: cd u1-downloader

Start the program by running: ./u1_downloader

*****************

MAYBE THE NEW FILE IS LOCATED ELSEWHERE. BUT I AM AT THE "Downloads" dir and it created the "u1-downloader" dir under it. This is where I am runing the "./u1_downloader"

Please post the output of:

Code:
file u1_downloader
ldd u1_downloader
I've seen this error occur when you try to run a 32 bit file on a 64 bit system that doesn't have the right 32 bit dynamic linker available.
