How to install soft Zimbra in ubuntu

Hello everyone.

My ISP provides webmail using a Zimbra platform. I have a few email accounts, each with a calendar, that I have synced on my Blackberry in Hub. I would like to do the same on my laptop and I thought the Zimbra desktop app would have the best chance of doing that seamlessly.

Mint 18 with Cinnamon3.0

Downloaded the package from the Zimbra site and used Archive Manager to unpack. So far, so good. I can see the unpacked files and folders sitting in a sub-directory.

Both Zimbra and ubuntu installation instructions say navigate to the folder where the unpacked files reside and then run the following in terminal:

Zimbra says sudo ./

ubuntu says sudo perl ./

Both return an error message saying that the directory or file does not exist, although I can plainly see sitting there. Cannot get Software Manager to install the app. In frustration, I double clicked on the file and ended up with a Zimbra desktop icon in internet. When I double click it, a blank window opens with the hurry up and wait icon rotating until a message pops up saying the following script has stopped running, click continue to keep trying or stop. Both do nothing and the hurry up and wait continues endlessly.

Here's the script that apparently has stopped running:


Any clues?
Thank you for any help and suggestions.

I do the Zimbra way first, if there's an issue with it, the other method may be necessary.
The document will specify details as to why.
