using a .sh file
 
HI when i double click install.sh it wants me to exicute it and i do but for a fraction of a second it brings up a terminal

Please exhibit at least the beginning of that file to ease investigation, and post back output of 'ls -l /path/to/install.sh'.

Also, did you try to execute it in a terminal (as root if need be), either with './install.sh', '/path/to/install.sh' or 'sh install.sh'? Last question, what is it supposed to install?

i used sh install.sh and im installing grub-custumizer

AFAIK running an install.sh file is not the recommended way to install a package in Debian. This notwithstanding I downloaded the tarball grub_customizer-3.0.2.tar.gz from https://launchpad.net/grub-customizer/+download and didn't find an install.sh file in it so I am a bit lost. Care to tell the exact name of the tarball or package you are trying to install and where you got it from?

Also it would be helpful to know which error messages you got running sh intall.sh, if any.

no i mean http://ubuntuone.com/2EslXTLj5s2zzbeYKx17wJ

OK then I downloaded that and got following error messages.

Running sh install.sh in ed3:
Code:

Could not locate grub-mkconfig or grub2-mkconfig in your path.
Running sh install.sh in ed2:
Code:

Could not locate GRUB's installation directory
Both messages are here for a reason: I use lilo, not grub ;).

But again, it would help to know which error messages you get, both in /ed2 and /ed3 (after un-taring the tarball, of course).
