How to install .bundle Pack on Ubuntu

I was trying to install an application   on my monster latop (running Ubuntu 9.04). The only format you could download it in was .bundle. I have never installed a .bundle app, but after some google-ing and putting bits and pieces together, I now know how to install a .bundle, and you will too. I was download application from VMware workstation     ( 64 bit ) bundle

First you need the required packages:
sudo aptitude install build-essential linux-kernel-headers linux-kernel-devel

Then you need to make it executable by using chmod:
chmod +x ./(Package name )

Then finally:
gksudo bash ./AppNameHere

    Tried it, says: “no such file or directory” The bundle is on my desktop. I tried putting in the path several different ways but still says the same thing chmod says “cannot access no such file or directory” it seem like there is a step missing, what am I doing wrong?

    step 1 :
    sudo aptitude install build-essential linux-kernel-headers linux-kernel-devel

    step 2 :
    chmod 777 (pacakgename)sudo aptitude install build-essential linux-kernel-headers linux-kernel-devel

    step 3 :
    chmod +x ./ (packagename)

    step 4 :
    gksudo bash ./AppNameHere

    let me know
