Let's say I have a binary file named texmaker_linux_installer, I first move it to my home folder and then I do the following to install it. (first open a terminal)
vafa at vafa-desktop:~$ chmod a+x texmaker_linux_installer
vafa at vafa-desktop:~$ sudo ./texmaker_linux_installer
[sudo] password for vafa: #give your own password here
hope, it helps you.
