How to Install a Game From GOG

I just purchased several games from GOG Stardew Valley being one of them .... they sent the game to me by way of a file which I don't know how to open .... here is the info from the game itself ..... what do I do now .... ?????????????

It tells you how in that file you posted.
Open a terminal within the Same Directory that the installer-file.sh is in.
Then run

chmod +x installer-file.sh

Run it with

./installer-file.sh

Hey it works ..... now to find out where my saved games folder is so I can copy and paste the one from Windows to play on Zorin .... I sure don't want to start from the beginning as I'm in my 4 year (4th year in game play)

Thank you guys ..... I hope I can remember these steps .... I'm going to copy and paste them into a doc so I can view it later ....

it should now be installed. The error is them errors, nothing to worry about.

Yes sir everything is working just fine ..... I found out where the Stardew Valley saved game file is and moved my saved game from Win 7 to GOG on Zorin ...... works like a charm ...... I sure didn't want to start all over from the beginning if I didn't have to .... found the answer to the location of saved file on the net .....

I have marked the thread solved :slight_smile:
