Default Error running install package

I use unbuntu and when i try running
sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-169.04-pkg1.run
all i get is the error
sh: Can't open NVIDIA-Linux-x86-169.04-pkg1.run

It does it with other releases too, what am I doing wrong?

EDIT: I know what its doing, its not running it as an executable text file, how do i force it to do that in a terminal?

Default Re: Error running install package

that just appear when you are not in the folder where you have the file for example if you have the file in directory /home/linux_user/
then in the console you should do as root
cd /home/linux_user
sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-169.04-pkg1.run

Or anywhere in the console as root
sh /home/linux_user/NVIDIA-Linux-x86-169.04-pkg1.run

and remember to stop gdm first
