I recently purchased the humble bundle but I am having trouble installing the games and getting them to run.

Some of them are .sh and others are .bin files. On a terminal, I have cd to the location where I downloaded them to and typed chmod +x * so I can apply it to the games that I downloaded. After that i type sudo ./gamefile.sh for the game that is a .sh file.

And when I try to run them I get error saying that a file is not found in the game directory but I see it there and even checked the permissions.

Another game that is a .sh file as well, runs and loads but then it just sends me to straight to the desktop. I don't know if its relevant but I am running the latest Ubuntu version on a Chromebook.

Thanks. So after trying all of the suggestions, I failed to notice an error reported by the terminal while it was installing. `Verifying archive integrity... All good. Uncompressing Mojo Setup.............. Collecting info for this system... Operating system: linux CPU Arch: x86_64 trying mojosetup in bin/linux/x86_64

But there is no gamefile.sh file. –  Avinash Raj Feb 27 at 8:03
    
Sorry, I should have noted that I used gamefile.sh as an example for a game. –  user252836 Feb 27 at 8:04

I just tried it and it said that it is not available anymore but the following packages replace it lib32z1 lib32ncurses5 lib32bz2-1.0 . which one should i try? or should i get all of them? –  user252836 Feb 27 at 8:21
    
just open synaptic package manager and search ia32-libs.ifit does not exist try your first section(lib32z1).both are including nearly same files. –  RoadRunner Feb 27 at 8:24
    
by the way I guess you have done full access to your downloaded games files.if not, you can also try thoose: -1- cd /your path where game downloaded -2- ls -la (9 to view file priliviges) -3- chown your username your filename -4- chgrp your username your filename -5- chmod +w filename -6- chmod +x yourfilename -7- chmod +r yourfilename try to full acces.because some files needs to extend to hard drive –  RoadRunner Feb 27 at 8:30
    
Didn't work, but i tried installing it with gksudo and made some progress because now I get the following error user@chrubuntu:~/Guacamelee$ ./game ./game-bin: error while loading shared libraries: libGL.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory –  user252836 Feb 27 at 8:59
    
I will purchase that games now and try to install to my systems.I will report you if something happens.Let me while. –  RoadRunner Feb 27 at 9:12
