After unarchiving, the "install" file needs be set to executable ("chmod +x install" -this function should be in many file managers). Then type "sudo ./install". Run by typing "xnview" in terminal.

Right click the file then "properties", "permission" tab, then tick "allow executing file as program".
I believe you'd be better off with the Windows version on Wine though.

How about using alien to convert the .RPM to .DEB and installing by double-clicking? That's how I do it. :)

Plus, I refuse to use wine...

# alien -d xnview*.rpm
# dpkg -i xnview*.deb
(# = root )

Ok, I right-clicked, changed the permission, then, what? Typing sudo ./install did not work. What am I missing?

I'm running Ubuntu 8.04. Wine is broken in my 8.04 (and for other users, I hear).

You may be able to run old version without installing it. Try ignoring the "install" file and find & run "xnview" from a normal user directory with file manager (I'm using "xfe" when trying this- it has better unarchiving functions than some others).

Aside: About 50% of Windows users download installers. For Linux, a "deb" package is expected .

XnView is running fine under Wine. However if one installs either XnView-x86-unknown-linux2.x-static-fc4.tgz or from XnView-static-fc4.i386.rpm) you only get a dialog
(XnView v.17) with 3 entries; File Option Info, where the Wine-install gives you a full
XnView-dialog. Anyway, the wine-install runs fine.

This is not always a good idea !

Myth 1: "Wine is slow because it is an emulator"
*... As Wine's name says: "Wine Is Not an Emulator": ...
* ...a well written Windows application can beat a badly written Unix application at any time. The efficiency of the algorithms used by the application will have a greater impact on its performance than Wine...
Myth 2:"Wine is bad for Linux"...
Myth n: .....
