Fedora 25: unable to open .run files

Postby mr-data » 04. February 2017 16:20

I am trying to install XAMPP but I continue to get a message saying that an extension is needed to run files ending on .run

My computer is running Fedora 25, is fully updated and works flawlessly. The version of XAMPP I am trying to install is 7.1.1 , but I have also tried 5.6.30 . And in both cases, I get the same message; unable to run .run files.

Did you apply the execution flag on the .run installation file (i.e. chmod +x ....)?

Not sure, what I did do was this:

1. Log in as root

2. Navigate to the location of the .run file is located, using the file manager.

3. Right click on the .run file, allow to execute it as a program.

4. Execute the file, problem solved.

Thats basically the same solution, you used a GUI file explorer, i used the terminal. Both makes the installer and executable file.
