Whew, thanks Jeremy. I am unsure on the next step.
Ok my objective is to install the software for Google Earth for an
Ubuntu 7.10 install and there are no install instructions on the Google
I found this brief paragraph here:
.... Install was a breeze, just download the GoogleEarthLinux.bin, chmod
+x it to make it executable and run it. By default it installs to
~/google-earth/ but you have the option to change this during the install.
So I DLed the .bin file to a temp directory and ran the chmod +x
GoogleEarthLinux.bin command. since it did not complain I assume the
command to make the file executable worked. Then it just says run it. I
had no luck looking for a man page for 'run'
I went here http://www.ss64.com/bash/ and searched for a command that
has <<<run>>> in the command brief, assuming that the command I need
would need to be run with bash. Here is a list of the commands found:
. Run a command script in the current shell
builtin Run a shell built-in
chroot Run a command with a different root directory
command Run a command - ignoring shell functions
crontab Schedule a command to run at a later time
nohup Run a command immune to hangups
source Run commands from a file `.'
My question is which one do I use and should it be this syntax? <<< .
GoogleEarthLinux.bin>>> or should I use one of the other commands?
