How to install .sh files

I was trying to install some flowchart software called yEd . The software was provided in an .sh format.

These are the steps to install .sh software:


1) Download the .sh file e.g. "filename.sh" and save it in on the Desktop

2) Open the Terminal from Menu -> Accessories -> Terminal Emulator

3) Type cd ~/Desktop

4) Type chmod +x filename.sh (makes the file executable).

5) Type sh ./filename.sh to execute the file.

6) Now install software as usual.
