I may be a little dense here, but you "unzipped and ran" what??

If you are referring to centrify and / or likewise-open, why would you not use Synaptic (mint's installer) to install the applications?
Also, unlike Windows, you will not be presented with a gui window to say that the application is installed and would you like to run it. Once installed you would need to read
either applications documentation to see what steps you are required to perform to have them work as expected. Think of what data you would enter into a Windows machine to have it
recognise / search for AD?
