More install questions............


I've read through the questions and answers on installing programs above, but, have been unable to get this one to work.

It is Adobe Acrobat Reader. The readme file says to "run the install script"

I cannot figure out how to do this.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!

well I am assuming that when you extract the files, you will find a file called install.sh in the directory. To run it first make sure that it has execution rights.

Then just type this:

./install.sh

that should run it.

After decompressing the files in the archive, here ia what is there, as it is shown on the screen:

COMMON.TAR
INSTALL
LICREAD.TXT
LINUXRDR.TAR
MANIFEST
README

The original filename was linux-505.tar.gz

When I su on the Konsole, It tells me:

bash: ./install: No such file or directory. I know I am in the right directory because of the file listing I listed above.

If I preview the file just called INSTALL here is what I see:

#!/bin/sh
#
# Install Script for UNIX Acrobat Exchange and Reader v. 5.0.5
#
# Copyright (c)1995-2002 Adobe Systems Incorporated
# All Rights Reserved
#
##########################################################################

echoawk ()

What am I doing wrong? Thanks in advance!

well the problem is that you typed in the wrong name

Linux is case sensitive, so install is very different then INSTALL.

you got to do a:

./INSTALL

Awesome!

Thanks!

That worked!

I'm finding that there is a significiant learning curve when it comes to us Windows folks.

It is installed, and I can go to the directory, BUT, it does not appear to have installed it anywhere on my K menu.

Thanks a million for the help! I've ran into that case sensitive stuff before, so I should have remembered it.
