Windows Users:
Windows XP or later.

Mac Users:
Mac OS X 10.6 or later.

Linux Users
Ubuntu 8.04 or later.

when i read youre reply, all i could think about was DDUUUHH, now i have read it and unfortanely this is it.


INSTALLATION

First, Download XMind from http://www.xmind.net/

For Windows installer, double-click it and follow the on-screen
instructions.

For Windows Zip version, unzip it to a clean folder. Open
this folder, and launch XMind directly without installation.

For Mac disk image, double-click it to open a Finder window including
"XMind.app" (Some download tool would open it automatically.) Drag the
"XMind.app" into your Applications folder to copy it to your hard drive.
You can drag XMind again from the Applications folder to your dock, if you
want.

Since you're in the terminal trying commands. Do you know how to look at the long listing of files?
Code:
ls -l
Using this you can see what the ownership and group of files are.

First a few questions/comments:
  • What is your distribution and version of it?
  • Are you logged in as yourself, or root?
  • Are the files for this install located in your home, or somewhere else?
  • When you do look at the ownership of the files, who does own them? And how is that related/not-related to your login? I.e. is it owned by your login, or are you root where it won't matter, and why would you be root (unless it is one of the distros where you always are root)
Where I'm going with this is that the normal case would be you:
  • Download a package to your user login directory somewhere, and unzip it. You should end up being the owner of those files/directories
  • You then run from your directory to configure and build, if needed
  • To do an install, you do that using super-user privileges and it is best to use sudo. Do you know how to use sudo?
Perhaps you can reply with some updated information so we can help you with some next steps.

Unless sirris means guest in Dutch, your username is that and you own the files in your directory.

Now for the new files which you've downloaded and unzipped, are they also there? Or are they in Downloads or some other sub-directory?

Because that is where you need to know who owns the files.

The relevant output of ls -l per your details is explained in the following:

drwxr-xr-x 2 sirris sirris 4096 dec 3 19:32 Afbeeldingen

d - this is a directory
rwxr-xr-x - these are permissions. Trios, Owner, Group, World. r - read, w - write, x - execute. rwx for the owner, r-x for the group, which is also sirris (very common for a username to have their own group as a default, no harm there), r-x for world. What r-x means is read and execute. Which actually for a directory makes sense because someone technically needs to execute it to be able to go down into it using the cd command. The rest are things like file size (all directory filenames are one size which is meaningless, it has nothing to do with the contents of the directory, the date, and filename.

What you need to do is to cd (change directory) to where the unzipped file is and do the ls -l command there, so we can see ownership and permissions for that file.

I'm trying to think how you get to your Desktop directory. Unsure, I don't see it in your home directory where you appear to have done the ls command from. It should be right there and in checking, the apparent Dutch word for desktop is "desktop". I'm not at my Mint system right now I'll have to check in a bit when I get back to that system. Please try to find the directory where you downloaded and unzipped this file and do the ls -l there so you can see the information on that file.

I bet on "Bureaublad" as Desktop folder name

@naijerana,
The first thing you have to learn is the working directory, eg the folder where you are.

To execute the installation script, it's better to do it from the same directory in which it's located.

You can do it with the mouse maybe, you double click on unzipped folder, then right click on folder blank background and select open terminal here. You can execute the script from there, using tips like you found on previous post

If you want to run a program that is not in the path, but is in the working directory, you do
Code:
$ ./program_name
