As we notice about Linux, it doesn’t uses *.exe files unlike the others. If I’m going to click on a specific file, it inquire first of what I want to unclosed them. I don’t know what to select then. I want to ask, what are the file types Linux commonly has? What are the Linux’ Windows complementary parts? What RPM packages are and how to use them? Please help me answer these questions. I’ll greatly appreciate any help coming from you.

From the prompt kind /path/to/executable/name_of_prog. In case you are in the same listing as the executable after that"/path/to/executable/" previously mentioned equals to "./"

Verify that it is executable with ls -m, you need to view a chain just similar to "-rwxr-xr-x", where the three x's imply permission for your owner, party and others to execute the actual file. If you're lacking a great times, the actual command chmod ugo+x will certainlyoffer all the previously mentioned agreement (look into the manpage 'man chmod' with regard to more on this).

When the executable nevertheless appears to become performing almost next to very little, then it depends upon how it's and you'd must post more information. p.s. except if simply by simply "open up" an individual meant "appear at"?

Hallo David Chase,

For windows, when you want to install an application you will simply execute the *.exe file, but for Linux it is totally different.  You will need to extract that file and use the command line to setup that file.

When you download a Linux installation file, it will come with a setup guide that will help you in running the commands of the setup in the command line. So you will just need to follow the steps as the guide tells you, access the terminal of whichever Linux distribution you are using and you will be able to successfully install the program.

Hope this helps.
