Hey guys, I'm trying to install a .bin app on Ubuntu and it doesn't work at all... Do the .bin files work on Ubuntu? If yes how? Thank you...

    Open a shell and do this:
    Code:
    ./<file name>.bin
    Where <file name>.bin is the name of the bin file.
    If this doesn't work, do this:
    Code:
    chmod 755 <file name>.bin
    Also, you may have to sudo to do this.

    First it gave me permission denied then i typed chmod.... then pressed enter so nothing appeared to have happened... then i tried /.name.bin and it gave me the following error:

    error while loading shared libraries: libstdcc++-lic6.2-2.so.3: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

    and by the way how do I sudo

    Thank you

    Try
    Code:
    sudo ./name.bin
    Can you actually tell us the name of the program?

    It looks like you'll have to grab the standard C++ library:
    Code:
    $ sudo su
    % apt-cache search libstdc++
    Go over the output from the search and apt-get install what seems right given the name of the share object file that the .bin needs.

    The program is J2EE SDK (Java) and do I need to have an internet connection on that machine to get this C++ Standard Library?
