Have you tried running it under sudo? So:

sudo ./install

If you are installing likely needs different permissions, if not I’d say confirm the requirements of your Network Simulator.


There’s a few ways to execute the file. First, you can give it execution rights using:

chmod +x

and then run ./install or you can use:

bash ./install
