  1. I am running this on 64 bit ubuntu 12.04 with an fx-6300 cpu and a radeon 7770 gpu and when i click to run, nothing, when i click to run in terminal, a flash of the terminal and then nothing. Quite frustrating to run a simple benchmark.



  2. To be more specific, I cannot even extract the the folder. I am a total linux newb and have had my pc less than a week.

    Try this – Right cliick on, in properties Tab check everything what is in second group of options, then click OK. Now you can double click on the file again, this should extract Valley to the specified folder. Now you can run the Benchmark by clicking on it and selectig option Run.



  4. Hello I am trying to install Unigine Heaven 4.0 on Elementary OS Luna (Ubuntu 12.04) and I get the files extracted but when I try and launch via the Terminal it tells me the ./bin doesn’t exist as well as ./launcher_x64. I am using the provide heaven file from above but still am having no luck. Any thoughts or suggestions?
