You will need to make the file executable by using chmod from the command line or using the GUI.

On the command line I think it is something like the following:

chmod +x libsaxon-HEC-setup

kind regards,

Dear all,

thanks again for having advised me to give Saxon/C a try.

But I'm failing to install it.

I have an openSUSE 13.1 64-bit system (I can't use another distribution) and I'm absolutely new to Linux. Following the steps described on seemed not too complicated, but I didn't succede.

So, I've downloaded the file and unzipped it.

Now I've started the bash Console, navigated to the folder libsaxon-HEC-setup64-v0.2 and typed in './libsaxon-HEC-setup'.

Then it says 'File or directory not found.'

Going back to the root directory and typing in the command again had the same effect.

What now?
Any help is appreciated.
Thanks in advance!
