I'm trying to install the game PlaneShift on FC5. I downloaded a .bin file. Can someone please explain to me how to install this. I'm new to Linux and Fedora so I have no idea what I'm doing. Thanks.

run terminal, change permissions for file so you can execute it some thing like "chmod 777 PlaneShift.bin" and run file "./PlaneShift.bin", if you want to install it system-wide, login as root first with "su", however you can run installer from nautilus if you dont like terminal:
Right Click -> Properties -> Permissions, select execute, close window and dobbleclick on file, if it asks something choose "Run"

I gave the file permission, but when I double click it it does nothing.

Alright try to run it from terminal
Applications -> Accessories -> Terminal
use "cd " command to navigate to folder where PlaneShift file is
(example "cd /home/user/Desktop")
to run file (if you've changed permissions already) just type


./filename
where filename is the name of your file

If I type 'su' and then my root password and then try it I get "No such file or directory'

ls - list files in current folder
cd - change directory
pwd - prints path to current directory

try to navigate with it and find folder where Planeshift installator

While this is a few years late, I thought I'd post it anyway for any future visitors with the same question.

You can install PlaneShift by using the following guide:
http://www.hydlaaplaza.com/smf/index.php?topic=31776.0

note: If you get a "Segmentation Fault" when you use the command ./PlaneShift-v0.4.03-x86.bin, amend --mode text to the command so that it looks like this: ./PlaneShift-v0.4.03-x86.bin --no text
That should get rid of the segmentation fault, and will run you through the same installation but with a text interface.
