    Hello
    i downloaded the server and extracted the file. I followed the instructions to Go to the installation directory and run command ./install.sh. When i do this the file does not ececute but rather opens in kwrite. I know it is most likely my fault but could some one help me here. I am new to linux.
    Running knoppix
    thanks

    you've dropped on the command-line, changed to the lsws-install-directory, and sending
    ./install.sh
    there opened it in kwrite for you? then something really strange is going on on your system.

    It might help to send the result of "ls -l install.sh". I am curious if the execute bits are unset.
