I am using Fedora with Gnome and I downloaded the JDK from Sun into my home directory. When I bring up nautilius I see the file in my home directory, but when I click on it I get a window stating:
Cannot open jdk-1_5_0-nb-4_0-beta2-bin-linux.bin
The filename "jdk-1_5_0-nb-4_0-beta2-bin-linux.bin" indicates that this file is of type "unknown".
To open the file, rename the file to the correct extension for "executable", then open the file normally.
When I look at the properties of the file, the "Type" is executable and the "MIME Type" is application/x-executable. The permissions are read/write/execute for owner/group/others (777).
When I execute it in a concole, the InstallShield Wizard starts, then states "The installer is unable to run in graphical mode."
How do I simply double-click on this file so it can run in graphical mode and have it install itself?
