I have recently installed a game and in the game's folder, there's a file with the extension of x86_64. I attempted to open said file and It gave me the error message in the picture below.

Could not display KSP.x86_64
There is no application installed for executable files. Do you want to search for an application to open this file.

After that I tried to right click the file and select 'open with other application' and this error message up.

No applications available to open KSP.x86_64.
Click Show other application for more options, or find applications online to install new applications.

I clicked 'find applications online' and after a few seconds the following error message showed up.

GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Python.xdg.Exceptions.ParsingError: Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/defer/__init__.py", line 489, in _inline_callbacks

Does anyone have any help as to how to solve this issue?

You can either right click on the file, click permissions, and check "Allow executing file as a program", or you can open a terminal and type ./KSP.x86_64 (Note the ./ in front of it.).

You need to mark the file as executable then you can double click it and choose "Run in terminal".

How to mark a file as executable

  1. Right click the file
  2. Choose 'Properties'
  3. Go to the 'Permissions' tab
  4. Tick 'Allow executing this file as a program'
  5. Close the dialog.
