Indicating which Linux distribution would be a good start and posting a link to whatever software you are trying to install would also help. Also, is it a bash script you are trying to run and where is it located on your system and have you made it executable?

Probably have to run it using sudo.

Please post exactly your terminal session where you tried and got errors. Select the text and cut/paste that into a [code][/code] block so that people can see what you mean when you see comment on these errors.

Because it could be things like:
  1. Incorrect execute permissions
  2. Incorrect arguments being given to the script
  3. Needing to run using sudo
  4. Unable to run because you don't have a certain system command
  5. Or other things
