    Log in as root (su root) then do this:

    chmod a+x jre-1_5_0_10-linux-i586.bin

    Just make sure that it is the exact same version of JRE you have so change the version accordingly. Then ./jre-1_5_0_10-linux-1586.bin

    hi,

    the error is telling you that you are actually able to execute the file, but it comes to a halt at line 311. This is a dependency problem.

    You can try (as root or using sudo) apt-get install sfx (if you're lucky that's the name of the package). If this fails try, (as root or sudo) apt-cache search sfx which will tell you what packages include anything related. And finally, if all else fails:

    http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&l...tu&btnG=Search
    (Googling never fails)

    Go to the link above, or google for sfx package Ubuntu

    Cheers,
