  • Try sudo ./runInstaller instead. Ubuntu uses sudo to gain admin privileges. – mikewhatever Nov 5 '13 at 14:57
  • maybe chmod 744 runInstaller helps, because runInstaller must be executable – user85164 Nov 5 '13 at 15:01
  • i try sudo ./runInstaller and there is "command not found error" – Kerem Kandemir Nov 5 '13 at 15:05
  • i tried "chmod 744 runInstaller" but there is still "access is denied error" – Kerem Kandemir Nov 5 '13 at 15:07
  • Can you add the output of ls -al runInstaller in your question? – user85164 Nov 5 '13 at 15:16

I found the problem. I download oracle installer and unzipped the file on windows 7 laptop. And copied that to Ubuntu. So that is the problem cause. Dont unzip file with windows 7. İf you want to use a file with Ubuntu unzip them in ubuntu OS computer...

  • unzipping them in Windows probably broke the default permissions in the files. also and I might be wrong about this, zip format doesn't support Linux permissions, so I would suggest downloading different formats – Dan Nov 7 '13 at 7:46
