How do I get crashplan to work
I downloaded and installed crashplan per instructions and it installed to /home/john/crashplan. Instructions say to run CrashPlanDesktop. I try that and I get command not found. ls -l gives

-rwxr-xr-x 1 john john 373 Nov 12 18:26 CrashPlanDesktop
-rwxr-xr-x 1 john john 4721 Nov 12 18:26 CrashPlanEngine

with program names in green-colored font

How do I get this to run? OS is Ubuntu 12.04 64-bit

The usual thing is to install it to a directory in the $PATH and it will run automatically (e.g., usr, /usr/local)

You can install and run it from /home/john/crashplan, but if you run it as john, you will only have luser permissions. If that's OK, well and good. Find it's exact location, and run it, e.g.
