Is it just me, or the Linux installer has a weird behavior? If I try to run it nothing happens. In terminal I get a "can't open" message. It only happens with the Trine 2 and Shadow Warrior 2013 (I am trying with Japanese language) installers. It's not a matter of permissions. Could anyone try to download one of these and see if they are corrupted? I'm on Ubuntu 14.04 32 bit.

I tried to run it with bash, this time it opened but was terminated by the system.
Installing with sudo bash worked. I wonder what it is that causes this behavior of the sh file.

Thank you Ella, I did but I had no response to day. So I tried to get help from other Linux players. Anyway I think that my solution might be of help to others that for some reason find the same problem in the future. If it was only me that's better!
Maybe I have not been clear: installing with sudo bash worked. So the problem is solved.

That's a poor solution. AFAIK, all GOG sh installers attempt to install to your home folder by default and specifically do not need root access. Running some of the installers as root will cause more problems than fix them.

Personally I don't run the installers, but extract them:
$ unzip installer.sh
Guess that would be considered a workaround.

32-bit DASH bug. Running with BASH or other shell should work.

Thank you. So that I try to understand correctly: this .sh installer does not support dash because of some line that it includes? And what are the advantages of extracting them on your own? I did anyway and works like a charm.

Rather 32-bit DASH does not support large installers as DASH was not compiled with large file support.

Mainly personal preference. It also skips running the installer program.
