I've already downloaded the Scid-4.2.6.exe but I don't know how to get it running.
An .exe is a Windows executable that you won't be able to run natively in Ubuntu. What you need to do is find the software in either the software centre or as a liunx package online. Take a read of the following: help.ubuntu.com/community/InstallingSoftware– AJefferissAug 21, 2015 at 13:45
.exe files are not executable. These are Windows executables.
To install this, press Ctrl+Alt+T to go to a terminal and type:
sudo apt-get install scid
