  • obviously , your file was opened in text editor. You should tell filemanager to make open that file as program – Sergiy Kolodyazhnyy Jul 30 '16 at 14:37

  • How can I run it as a programm? – kostakis Jul 30 '16 at 14:39
  • You got the file from here, yes? It's 400MB, which is way beyond the size of a shell script. It's probably a compiled program or .deb file. – wjandrea Jul 30 '16 at 17:19
  • I checked over the file. The first ~550 lines are a shell script, then after that it looks to be a compiled program. – wjandrea Jul 30 '16 at 19:50

I'm not familiar with Anaconda. What is it? Where did you download it from? You may not have gotten what you wanted.

If it's supposed to be a .deb installation file, rename it from .sh to .deb, right-click on the file icon, and see if Archive Manager can open it.

If it's a pure binary file, rename the file from Anaconda_blah_blah_blah.sh to Anaconda, and in the file manager (Nautilus), right click on the file, choose Properties, and under the Permissions tab, check the "Allow executing file as program".

postnote: according to the Anaconda download page, it says to do the following in terminal:

bash Anaconda3-4.1.1-Linux-x86_64.sh
