i think you just need to make sure the file is executable and then just execute it:

chmod a+x et-linux-2.55.x86.run

./et-linux-2.55.x86.run

yes, but you don't need to exit your GUI, you can use one of your terminals, like xterm, or rxvt...

when does it say that?? when you try to do the "chmod"??

you need to make sure you are in the same directory as the file when you run the command like above, if not, you'll need to specify the entire path...

well, you could go into that directory and issue the commands:

cd /home/danny/Desktop/Wolfenstein

chmod a+x et-linux-2.55.x86.run



or just do it from wherever you are:

chmod a+x /home/danny/Desktop/Wolfenstein/et-linux-2.55.x86.run
