I'm a new Linux user. I bought 1 month ago a 64x Laptop with Windows 8 pre-installed.
Using UnetBootin I installed Ubuntu 12.10 and completely removed Windows 8.
Now, the new Ubuntu version is a bit too heavy for my slow laptop, I therefor decided to try Bodhi or Fedora. Like I did for installing Ubuntu, I downloaded UnetBootin for Linux, and the Bodhi image. I thought I could simply run UnetBootin and follow the same steps as I did on Windows, and then install Bodhi...
But as I double click the downloaded UnetBootin executable ["unetbootin-linux-583"] it gives me the following error:
Could not display "/home/laptop/Desktop/unetbootin-linux-583". There is no application installed for executable files. Do you want to search for an application to open this file?
I searched before about the error, and found several times the tip to change the
Allow executing file as a program in the properties. I tried, and now if I double click, nothing happens at all.
