Open up a terminal window, go to the directory where you've save the file and type:

sh filenamegoeshere.bin

That should get the installer or whatever the prog's supposed to do started.

don't forget to make the .bin file an executable file before doing the: sh filenamegoeshere.bin

To make it exceutable use chmod:
chmod 755 filenamegoeshere.bin
