.run file

I'll try to learn Linux software and install every kind of programs to my computer. I find here from "Linuxquestions" a link to p2p program called "Apollon" and download the file. The file is "". Have I downloaded wrong file or what I have to do to file ".run"?

.run usually means its an executable file. So give your self permission to execute by typing
chmod a+x
And then type
If that doesn't work type

Thank you!
That's the way to do it. I started the installation, but i have few problems there. First with "ltdl.h", I solved that. Then problems with "giftconnection.cpp" and the installation is not complete because of that. I leave the problem to the future.

giftconnection.cpp: In member function `void giFTConnection::makeAttachRequest()':
* giftconnection.cpp:177: error: `PACKAGE' undeclared (first use this function)
* giftconnection.cpp:177: error: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once for each function it appears in.)
* giftconnection.cpp:179: error: `VERSION' undeclared (first use this function)
* make[3]: *** [giftconnection.o] Error 1
