Hai friends,

Go to your Downloads Directory in terminal as super user. Now if the downloaded file didn’t have Executive permission, First we have to give the +X permission for that file, By using this command

[root@mercury Downloads]# chmod +x

As a super/root user run the file preceded by ./(Package name)


[suresh@mercury ~]$ su -
[root@mercury ~]# cd /home/suresh/Downloads/
[root@mercury Downloads]# chmod +x
[root@mercury Downloads]# ./
