    Wings 3D install


    Ok, I'm trying to install a program called Wings3D (www.wings3d.com) and I'm having problems installing it. I downloaded the file "wings-0.98.25-linux.run.gz" from the site. When extracted, I only get one file "wings-0.98.25-linux.run" but I can't do anything with it.
    Code:
    tony@midgar:/usr/local/src$ wings-0.98.25-linux.run
    -bash: ./wings-0.98.25-linux.run: Permission denied
    tony@midgar:/usr/local/src$ ./wings-0.98.25-linux.run
    -bash: ./wings-0.98.25-linux.run: Permission denied
    tony@midgar:/usr/local/src$ make wings-0.98.25-linux.run
    make: Nothing to be done for `wings-0.98.25-linux.run'.
    tony@midgar:/usr/local/src$
    Does anyone know what I'm supposed to do with this? I couldn't find any installation help on the site.
