Hi everybody. I have a newbie question.

Im using ubuntu.

I downloaded powerISO here to extract some .daa files. I downloaded it and extracted the file unto my desktop.
When i click it nothing happens.
When i access the terminal and access the desktop and try to type the executable it returns with a bash: poweriso: command not found.

The webpage of the application tells me to run the executable with the -? to figure it out but i cant even seem to run at all.

What am i doing wrong?

in the terminal try ./poweriso
since your Desktop is probably not in $PATH you have to specify the path when you type the command.
./ refers to the current directory (use if your in the directory of the program)
