Did you open the Konsole?
Just open the Konsole type:
Code:
sh

And then drag and drop the icon into this Konsole window, now you have the right path to the icon. Press enter to install

Another way to do it is to open the directory where you copied the file (/usr/local/game) with konqueror.  Then,  go to "Tools" along the top of the window and select "Open Terminal".  This automatically opens the terminal from the proper directory.  Then run the sh command as instructed by the game website.

both steps described by willem and marty got the game install file going.             using "file manager" i saved the game file "armyops250linux.run" to                                                    root/user/local/games     i clicked "open terminal" using the tool tab at top of file manager window. a root konsole appears  type "sh  ./armyops250linux.run" w/out the "  and bingo! the root konsole will take you through step by step install instructions using arrows and Enter keys. it will take some time for the file to uncompress as it is a 2.5gig fps game.  when install is finish, close konsole and go to your root/user/local/games/armyops folder[with privlage], find the shell script[shortcut] name "armyops" and link it to your choice of reach, and while you are in your "user/local/games/" folder, you can delete or move the original 775.8mb compressed "armyops250linux.run" file not the 2.0gb armyops folder.     i want to thank all pardus members for a great forum.
