Question Making a .run file run for a printer driver run?


I am running puppy precise 5.7.1 and I am trying to run a printer driver but to run the driver I am told to run this command in the console: ( Desktop$ sh hplip-3.15.2.run ) but I get no such command exist message. Any help please.
Also I have looked but can't find out what the sh command does. So thanks in advance for any info/help.

Welcome to LQ!

Have a nice time.

Login as root or use 'su' command.

Go to the directory where hplip-3.15.2.run is present and run:

Code:
chmod +x hplip-3.15.2.run
./hplip-3.15.2.run
