I am trying my hand at installing the Perforce Visual Client (P4V) on my Linux box. For this I download the correct version here and untar the files.
Then I cd to the directory
chmod +x p4*
After this I try running
p4v (by double clicking) but I dont see anything. The file type is shown as a "text executable" but I dont know why it is not running. On a Mac the same procedure works: just double-click and it runs correctly. What am I missing here?
I did check out this link with the install instructions.
