Second Life troubles

I am back, once again, seeking help in getting Second Life to run, on any viewer. I just updated to Ubuntu 16.04, and every time I attempt to open one of Second Life’s viewers, it just opens up in GEdit, as a text file. I looked at the permissions and the box “run as an executable” is ticked. How do I fix this?
