    What is you current directory you need to be in

    /home/DarthOpto/ET/

    So either use the full path ie

    chmod +x /home/DarthOpto/ET/et-linux2.55.x86.run

    or move to that directory

    cd /home/DarthOpto/ET/

    If DarthOpto is your home directory you can use a shortcut in either case

    cd ~/ET/

    the ~ symbol is shorthand for you home directory.

    I am in the right directory, I also tried the chmod +x /home/DarthOpto/ET/(filename).run
    and still got the message that no such directory exists. This is really frustrating. How am I supposed to install this package?

    Look very carefully at the name be sure that all is exactly the same. Linux is case sensitive.

    Who is the owner of the file? If you downloaded it you should own it and you should not have to change to root. So you should be able to navigate to the file in Konqueror (browser) and right click the file select properties see who owns it change and permissions there if you own it.

    You can also open a root Super user browse and do the same as root
