from what I can tell you are not doing this correctly. You are attempting to execute the commands from a directory that does not have the driver in it

so if I was doing this I would do the following:

Code:
stratus@stratus-laptop ~ $ cd Downloads
stratus@stratus-laptop ~/Downloads $ sudo chmod +x NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-290.10.run 
[sudo] password for stratus: 
stratus@stratus-laptop ~/Downloads $ sudo sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-290.10.run 
Verifying archive integrity... OK
Uncompressing NVIDIA Accelerated Graphics Driver for Linux-x86_64 290.10.......................................................................................................................................................
This is the same process regardless of whether you have Nvidia or ATI I believe
