It's /home/taso5/Downloads with a capital D. I apologize for missing the folder.

And you probably have to run it as root with sudo.

Try:
Code:
sudo sh ~/Downloads/*x86_64-190.42-pkg2.run

Open your file browser. Nautilus is the default for Gnome, I'll assume you're using it here, but most should have some way of doing this.
There's a button which should have taso5 on it in the top left - click the button to the left of that (Usually looks like a pad of paper)
Notice how it changes to /home/taso5 etc...
In your terminal, type 'cd ' including that space, and copy the line that appeared in Nautilus, complete with any capital letters and so on.

Edit: AlucardZero's solution above should work as well.
