Notes and Requirements
- .sh is the extension of a shell script. you use it for installing with shell scripts, or running commands.
- There are multiple methods to run and install using shell scripts. This is just one way!
- This tutorial is done for Ubuntu. A slight variation should be used for other Linux distributions if these instructions don't work.
- You must be using a Linux machine and must have the shell script file (with extension .sh) already downloaded.
- Change the directory to the one that the shell script file is currently in:
$ cd /Directory_Name
(replace Directory_Name with the name of the directory where the file is stored)
- Open the terminal (ctrl + alt + t) and type the following commands:
$ chmod +x file_name.sh $ ./file_name.sh
(replace file_name with the name of the file that you would like to install)
