I am having problems installing Geekbench. According to this page http://geekbench.com/download/linux/ I simply double-click the download file to install. What I get is an unpacked directory called build.pulse. What I am supposed to do with that? There are no other instructions, and I can not find ANY documentation anywhere. Any help wouold be appreciated.

OS: Ubuntu 16.04
Processor: Intel Pentium Dual CPU T3200 @ 2.00GHz x 2
Memory: 2.9 GiB

    I'm having the exact same issue. I can't even run any of the files in Geekbench-4.0.4-Linux via the terminal, just says command not found, which makes sense considering they don't appear to be packed as an executable. I too would like some more information on how to install or run Geekbench 4 on Linux. I found this knowledge base article but it is hopelessly out of date.
