This is the only real drawback for Linux in my mind - when you get some installer not in the form your distro uses, in our case a deb file.
I recommend that you use envy (you find it in the menu) to install the driver. For 9200 and older you use the the open driver, while for younger cards you can use the closed (restricted) driver
However if you want to run a .run file you just put
- Code: Select all
in front of it in a terminal
If you get a permission denied message just make sure the file has the proper permissions (chmod u+x yourfilename in a terminal)
