how to execute file in unix with executable rights

Just type the name in a command prompt. If the directory that it is in is not in the PATH variable then you will need to type:

./command

from the directory it is in, rather than

command

(Alternatively, just type the full path to the file.)

Assuming you're referring to *.deb, *.run, etc., then follow ijack's suggestion.

If it's an *.exe file intended for Windoze, then installing wine will allow you to run and install said application.
