I downloaded it, but I can't activate it. It looks like this... look error


You can't install software in Ubuntu using .exe files. You will have to download the .deb file.

If you want multipass, you can get it by running sudo snap install multipass --classic in the terminal.

Usually, software are installed in Ubuntu through the terminal using repositories or through the Ubuntu Software Store.

See https://multipass.run/, https://snapcraft.io/multipass and https://multipass.run/docs/installing-on-linux

from the image it seems that you have downloaded a windows program (it's file extension is ".exe" and there is "win64" in the file name). There are a few things that you can try to get the program running under Linux:

  1. look for a Linux version of the program:

    • I am not certain whether this is the program that you are looking for, but there seems to be a snap available either by typing sudo snap install multipass in a terminal, or searching for it in the software center

    • OR There might be a ".deb" file available on the program's website which you can install via sudo dpkg -i [filename].deb

  2. if there isn't a Linux version of the program you can still run the program via Wine

    • So far I haven't tried this myself, but you should be able to find plenty of tutorials on how to use wine to run windows programs on linux https://www.winehq.org/
