Install .sh files in Ubuntu

I am a fan of Seti@Home. So I need to install Boinc client. Boinc give us a .sh file to install. You know I am using Ubuntu Lucid Lynx 10.04. This is a debian based Linux. And we know that debian based distro use .deb extension as a installation file. But Boinc sofware is sharing as .sh file. I search the web and found that it is not much hard as I thought.
  • Just run
  • sudo sh filename.sh
  • then enter your root password.
  • That script will run and give you a message about the action.
  • Very easy. Nah!

  1. Not quite right...
    cd into the folder
    $ chmod 755 boinc_7.2.5_i686-pc-linux-gnu.sh (to make it executable)
    $ ./boinc_7.2.5_i686-pc-linux-gnu.sh
    (this will unpack it)
