Hello, I have just installed LMDE and upgraded to version 7. I want to install IBM java JRE/SDK. I downloaded the .bin files from IBM and from what I understand if I do chmod -x file.bin then ./file.bin this should work but I am getting "command not found"
I'm very new to linux - am I missing something basic? How can I tell what command is not found as ./ibm-java-jre-7.1-0.0-x86_64-archive.bin clearly is found as it says "permission denied". With sudo I get "command not found".
If it makes a difference I don't currently have any Java as I uninstalled OpenJDK and installed and then uninstalled Oracle version.

adam@lmde ~/Downloads $ sudo chmod -x ./ibm-java-jre-7.1-0.0-x86_64-archive.bin
adam@lmde ~/Downloads $ ./ibm-java-jre-7.1-0.0-x86_64-archive.bin
bash: ./ibm-java-jre-7.1-0.0-x86_64-archive.bin: Permission denied
adam@lmde ~/Downloads $ sudo ./ibm-java-jre-7.1-0.0-x86_64-archive.bin
sudo: ./ibm-java-jre-7.1-0.0-x86_64-archive.bin: command not found
EDIT: By trial and error I found this worked - it seems quotes are required. Is this correct?
