The /bin directory contains binary program files which are used by the system during startup, but which also may be required by users once the system is fully up and running. more detail


Some software (Adobe's Acrobat Reader, for example) is made available as a .bin file. You can install it like this:

  • Open a terminal in the directory where the package is and type: sh packagename.bin
  • If that doesn't work, make it executable by right-clicking the package, select Permissions tab and check "Is executable" (in a terminal: "chmod +x packagename.bin")
  • Then run it in a terminal opened in the directory with ./packagename.bin
