The OS knows the command is incorrect, and gives you the error. the only question you have to ask yourself is why
Trust me on this: it isn't.
I have checked and re-checked a dozen times, both in the shell and in Nautilus. Even clicking on the binary in Nautilus gives no response, although that should
launch the program. Nothing that has been done on the user side has differed in the least from what I did on my old Fedora install, and Foldit worked fine there. I can 100% guarantee that I am not mistyping anything. I can cd to the directory containing the binary, 'ls' to view it, and copy-paste its name after './' on the next line of the shell and get the error "file or directory not found." There is something legitimately screwed up on this system, and it is not PEBKAC.
Certainly tab-completion in Bash would not be filling in typos for me anyways.
I followed the instructions for installing Mathematica Player. It reported a successful completion of the installation process, and both the shell and Nautilus display all of its files stored in their correct locations. Mathematica Player also created a menu entry on installation. Clicking it does nothing. Copying the command listed in that menu entry's "properties" gives the same error: "file or directory not found." Now, perhaps Wolfram simply has no idea where they put their own binary when they packaged the program, but that would not explain the other binary failing to start.

Third-party software vendors don't always follow convention. The binary is named Foldit. No extension in the name, and it is not a subdirectory.
