I've seen this exact error message when trying to execute a shell script
that was copied from a windows box.  The "shebang" line had a trailing
carriage return which gets interpreted as part of the file name, and
obviously couldn't be found.

Clearly, from your output, the quanta-x11-x86 file is an executable, not
a shell script, so that's not the problem here.  But, perhaps it is
trying to load a resource or shared library and failing?  What does
    ldd /usr/local/quanta/quanta-x11-x86
report?  If that doesn't help, you can use strace, which should at least
tell you exactly what resource isn't found.
