how to install a .sh


sorry about the lack of intelligence in posting this but I searched the forum and couldn't find an answer to my question ^


I'm not sure how to install a .sh file


also: I have a problem with wine/wineX, for some reason there is no configuration file and I can't run "winesetup" because it doesn't exist

Any response would be quite helpful, thanks

To run a '.sh' file make sure its executeable with:

chmod +x filename.sh

And you can then run it by just typing the file name or doing

/bin/sh filename.sh

do I have to cd to the dir I put it in, like if I move the file to /usr/bin do I cd /usr/bin and then etc?

Just cd to the directory where the file is and type:

./filename.sh

P:S. As Andrew said, you have to verify that the file is executable first.
