i'm trying to install this program. in console as a normal user i type

and it opens, checks it's integrity, does it's thing. then after about 5 seconds it says "this program must be installed as root user"

so i su to root, type it in again, and get command not found. i even changed user to root directly and tried. got the same thing. tried exec install-blahblah and still command not found.

cd to the directory where the .sh file is and type: ./
as root.

./ denotes present working directory.
