I guess I wasn't clear. I said to unpack the file using the terminal, or 
Once you have unzipped it, go to your file manager--in my case, that's
Dolphin.  Maneuver to the directory where the file is. If you left-click 
on the file
_in Dolphin_ it will open in its graphic version, as if you were running 
Do that, just to make sure it's working.  Now Right click on the file 
and select
copy.  Move your mouse to someplace on the desktop and right-click again.
Select paste.  You will create an icon that says "DOS" in the middle, 
and under
it will be the file name, in this case, Convert.exe.  Now if you 
left-click on the
icon, the file should open once again in graphic mode, just like Windows.

In the case of convert, if you try to run the file out of the terminal, 
convert, not convert.exe) you will get a text version of the file, which is
rather confusing, but presumably you could use it that way.

I hope that clears it all up.  Sorry for any confusion.
