Installing Pro-Engineer on a linux machine

anyone know how to do this? i have 0 experience installing stuff on linux, i'm pretty new to it. i know the one word "un-tarring" and thats about the limit of my capabilities

it'll be wildfire3 version of proe on debian distro

thanks for any and all help

Scroll down that page till the point where it says:
"4. Installing from source"

That is actually a tutorial for Ubuntu (a Debian-based distro), so I think it should work for the most part. You might just want to wait for a confirmation from someone else, since I am new to Linux, too. FYI, if you can find a .deb file for the same program, then it would be as simple as installing a program on Windows.

Mayb you can start the installation by doing the following:
cd /home/(username)/...
sh setup
OR (from within the install directory)

If that doesnt work, post the output of ls -al from within the install directory.
