staroffice


Hello all,

I got a friend to download staroffice for me, but when i goto install it.

Quote:
sh so-5_2-ga-bin-linux-en.bin
I get an error saying :

Quote:
so-5_2-ga-bin-linux-en.bin:so-5_2-ga-bin-linux-en.bin: cannot execute binary file
Anybody know what's the problem? I'm thinking it's a korrupt download.


Thanks

You need to make the file executable. Use the following line:

chmod x+a <filename>.bin
