I have just installed MDK10 community over my old under-used Fedora insatllation. I dont get much use of Linux cos no-one has made any working drivers for my modem yet and I host my houses' network.
But aside from that, how the heck do you run executable files? I dont mean .exe's or anything like that, I mean just programs.
For example, I just installed Omnistudio. In the Linux dir there is a 'setup' program. Double clicking in KDE didnt work, nor did /path/setup in the cli. So I did it via the rpm's.
Now, omnistudio is there in /local/usr/rainingdata/os32/omnis or something like that, it says the file is executable, but running it in the gui or cli just doesnt do anything. I mean ANYTHING at all. Mandrake just carries on as if I hadn't typed anything or clicked anything.
This was happenening in Fedora too, which makes me pretty certain that its me that doing things wrong.
I dont think I am stupid, but could someone please help me with a simple straight answer?
Cheers in advance
