A .bin file is a self-extracting binary file.

From a console window, cd to the directory which contains the .bin file. Then execute these two commands:

chmod +x <filename>.bin, where <filename> is the name of the file. This will make the file executable.

Then, the command ./<filename>.bin will execute the file.
