Please help w/ installing Tracker video analysis program (run extention?)


Hello,

I'm running Ubuntu 14.04 on an AMD64 laptop. OpenJDK runtime Java 6 is installed.

I'm trying to install the program Tracker, from here: http://www.cabrillo.edu/~dbrown/tracker/

The installation instructions are here: http://www.cabrillo.edu/~dbrown/trac...#linux_install

I downloaded the 64bit version, a file called Tracker-4.86-linux-64bit-installer.run
The install instructions are to change the permissions and then in terminal: sudo Tracker-4.86-linux-64bit-installer.run
I then get "command not recognized". I have no idea how linux is supposed to execute a "run" file.

One thing that I'm not sure about is that for the program: "You must run Tracker in a Java 1.6+ VM." Does this mean that I have to somehow start a virtual machine and then execute the run file from within the VM?

thanks

I got it to work.
I had to type my command in like this: sudo ./Tracker-4.86-linux-64bit-installer.run

I'm not sure what the significance of the "./" is.
