Welcome to LQ.

Install : perl
( 126 MB of data will be downloaded to the directory /home/<name>/Jessops Photo/ ).

This is the directory the files are in, when I type "ls" it shows
EULA.txt and

when I type in "perl" it just seems to open up the EULA nothing else

I've tried that and all it seems to do is open up the user agreement with the following text

Dieses Script ist Ihnen bei der Installation von 'Jessops Photo' auf Ihrem Rechner behilflich und leitet Sie Schritt für Schritt durch den Installationsprozess.

Bitte lesen Sie die EULA (End User License Agreement) sorgfältig durch. Im Anschluss daran müssen Sie die EULA akzeptieren.
Innerhalb der EULA können Sie mit den Pfeiltasten navigieren. Durch drücken der Taste 'q' verlassen Sie die EULA.

Type q, and you will get the choice [JA/nein].
Then type ja to continue.
