How to run executable files in Linux?
I'm trying to install my Canon MP640 Printer in Linux Mint Julia, but when I open the setupfile I get this message:
The file '/media/CANON_IJ/win/MSETUP4.EXE' is not marked as executable. If this was downloaded or copied from an untrusted source, it may be dangerous to run. For more details, read about the executable bit.
I followed the required steps (right-click on the file, select properties, select permissions and activate the button saying "Allow executing file as program"). I even tried to follow these steps after copying the setupfile to the front screen.
I have installed Wine, but I keep getting the message "Path not found" when I try to run the setupfile.
Can anyone instruct me on how to install executable files like this in Linux, without making it to complicated? I noticed there are many people at other forums having the same problem as me, and I tried to follow the given instructions at those forums, but they were too difficult for a newbie like me.
I am greatful to anyone who can help me with my problem!
