Installing Pro-Engineer on a linux machine

In summary, the conversation is about installing software on a Linux system, specifically the Wildfire3 version of ProE on a Debian distro. The person asking for help has no experience with installing on Linux and only knows the term "un-tarring." They are seeking guidance and have found a tutorial for installing software on Ubuntu, another Debian-based distro. They mention the possibility of finding a .deb file for the program, which would make installation similar to that on Windows. The conversation also includes suggestions for starting the installation process and troubleshooting if it does not work.

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.

You could take a look at this:

The manufacturer should have left instructions on how to install. Usually its in a file called "INSTALL" or "README".

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

If that doesn't work, post the output of ls -al from within the install directory.
