I'm trying to install jdevstudio from Oracle on Ubuntu 12.10. I have downloaded a file with .bin extension. Unfortunately neither of the two provided methods (using terminal or setting the permission) works for me. I have placed the file in home folder but again nothing happens. What should I do?

p.s. when using ./jdevstudio11123isntall.bin command, terminal responds with

unable to execute [filename] no such file or directory.

@vasa1 sorry but what do you mean by fix? and how? don't you mean download it again? – user805178 Jan 14 '13 at 12:52
@vasa1 thanks. seems I need to rest my eyes for a while and pay more attention. I will check it again as soon as I'm on Ubuntu again. – user805178 Jan 15 '13 at 5:45
@vasa1 the problem persists with the message: "bash: ./jdevstudio11123install.bin: No such file or directory", I should mention that I have downloaded a Windows version of the software and it works well on the platform. – user805178 Jan 15 '13 at 7:29

Well you are supposed to do one more thing before that.

chmod +x yourfilename.bin
and then

If you have only one .bin file in that, then you need not worry about its name. You can run it after chmod +x command with ./*.bin.

I mean

chmod +x *.bin

It's all in question. – user805178 Jan 14 '13 at 13:16


On a terminal run the following:

sudo apt-get install ia32-libs


Installation Manger is a 32-bit application and requires 32-bit versions of operating system libraries. These libraries are not installed on Ubuntu 64-bit by default.
