Something is preventing me from uploading screenshots to this post so sorry for not being able to show you what I"m seeing.
I’m trying to run installers and programs I am downloading and I keep getting this message. (Could not display … there is no application installed for …) I can’t open or run things. Does anyone have a fix?
I’m trying to open and run a program I installed. This program doesn’t have an option in the repository. I double click it from my Downloads folder and it doesn’t open or run. I just get the message saying that I don’t have an application installed to open it with.
Requires a torrent client. Like qbittorrent or transmission.
Is a script. You probably have to mark it executable.
An example of doing that and running it in the terminal:
chmod +x script.sh
These are generally used on windoze.
Technically in linux the extension doesnt matter … so if it is a compatible script then you can run it like the one above. Though, again, the extension has me believing its intended for windoze.
And … I feel I should mention that if you arent familiar with these things then you probably wont be able to verify whether things like these scripts are malicious. If that is the case … then be absolutely sure you trust the source of this software before running it.
It looks kinda dodgy to me …
between the general design and the popup insisting it isnt a virus … but what do I know?
I did find from looking there that the installer provided is just a script .sh file. That must have been what you were referring to. You were probably just listing the other ones along with it … the bat for windows … and the torrent for download either.
I looked at the script and it does support for different linux distros by naming them…
Manjaro is not one of them.
The ‘Arch’ portion of the script may work … but I noticed in its very first bits that it defines updates with problematic command of sudo pacman -Syy.
I didnt look further, but it doesnt inspire confidence.
And it certainly wont work as it is now without augmentation.
If the machine wont boot because the hardware is bad … no usb will help.
If it is just the system on it thats the issue and you need something to boot from usb … then anything could work … ultimate boot disc … hirens boot cd … if the OS doesnt matter … then virtually any live system from puppy linux to a manjaro iso.
Ontopic: cscs gave you the solution (you had to chmod +x the sh script. Works even with right click in the file manager and making executable in the permission).
Offtopic 1: if you want to start using linux, you cannot just click click click, you have to take a little time to read the instructions.
Offtopic 2: i still don´t get it. You are a windows user. You want to reinstall the broken machine, so the hardware works. You you somehow have another machine with manjaro, since you have no clue i guess is a usb live image on a flash drive. And you have another spare flash drive (for the ventoy-medicat / hirensboot / whatever stuff). And you do not care about repairing the windows, you just want the files.
So why you just don´t boot with manjaro live usb the broken machine, and then from the file manager copy your files from the windows drive to the spare flash drive…and then reinstall?
