OK, here is what I would do, just from experience. Not because it is
obvious or anything.
1. chmod a+x vuescan *.bin
[vuescan obviously needs to be run as an application. The .bin on the other
files is an indication that they will need to be executed, too. And
typically, the files in a tarball need to be adjusted like this after
2. Start checking from the console, using "./vuescan" or
[Linux won't have /home/john/VueScan folder as a place it normally looks to
run things from.]
3. Try running it in the GUI by typing in: /home/john/VueScan/vuescan
4. Create a shortcut, or edit your menu, and add VueScan to the menu.
