Is that really the filename or have you missed the capitalization and the extention?
I ask, because I went over facebook, and was prompted to download the following file:

Code:
FacebookPlugIn-1.0.3.tar.gz

Ok, you said the file was on your desktop, which I am assuming is ~/Desktop. Please open a terminal and to do the following to install it for your user.
Code:
cd ~/Desktop
pwd
ls
tar xzf FacebookPlugIn-1.0.3.tar.gz
cd FacebookPlugIn
ls -l
chmod a+x FacebookPlugin_Install.sh
./FacebookPlugin_Install.sh
If there are any error messages please don't bother trying to run the reamaing commands, just post the full output to the forum.

Evo2.

PS. Some of the commands (ls, pwd, ls -l) are just to provide information in case is does not work.

@pkhera Thanks, there was indeed a typo in the cd command (I forgot the version string).

@glenn201 Please follow the modified instructions given by pkhera

Cheers,

Evo2.

Capital I in the "PlugIn" in FacebookPlugIn_Install.sh.

Please either cut and paste from the output of "ls -l" or use <Tab> completion.

Eg. Type
Code:
chmod +x F<Tab>
Where <Tab> means pressing the tab key. This should automatically print the rest of the filename for you.

Evo2.

(google to find out how tab completion works)
