installing bin file


When I write the command "./<File Name>.bin" an error appears saying command not found.
Should I install some sort of packages to make it work or what??

Usually you get a "Permission denied" message if you try to executable that doesn't have executable permissions set. Check that you're in the same directory as the file. Also, in future, please make sure you post in a suitable forum..
