Please help me to run the executable file from the archive which I found at: http://community.coherentpdf.com/ under "Download binaries now for Windows, Mac, or Linux/Download pre-built tools now". When you unzip the archive, there are several folders, my file is at Linux-Intel-64bit, called cpdf. I tried many different options to run this file, changed it's properties to executable. But it won't go.

  • Is the file stored in a partition formated as fat or ntfs??? Apr 14 '16 at 8:00

    change in the directory, run ldd cpdf and edit your question and post the output of the command.

I assume you have Ubuntu 64bit installed!

Go to the folder:

cd cpdf-binaries-master/Linux-Intel-64bit

Now launch the command:

./cpdf --help

If you want the command to be available everywhere on the system:

sudo cp cpdf /usr/local/bin/

or what I do

cp cpdf ~/bin/
  • Yes, the solution was pretty simple: I was too newbie to realise that the command ./cpdf (while being at the right folder) performs nothing (though there was no "command not found" message). Thank you!
