Ubuntu :: Cannot Open An Executable File Because Of Executable Bit?

Jun 20, 2010

I am running into a snag on .exe files in Lucid. I have Wine installed, but I can not open the file as it is blocked from executing with a window popping up telling me that this file was blocked due to security reasons. I go into the files properties and try to change the permission but that does not help. Is there a way to get around this? Possibly in the terminal as root?

Mar 10, 2010

I cannot figure out how to "install" a program I downloaded. It comes in Windows, Mac, and Linux flavors, and I did acquire the Linux version, which comes in a ZIP file. After I unzip it and cd to the directory it is in, I had an earlier version working a few months ago, but cannot recall how I made it work back then.

General :: Why Would Executable Say It Doesn't Exist / When Try To Run It?

Sep 28, 2010

I have a compiled program, a tagger to identify parts of text, which claims it does not exist.This executable has to be called by a generated script, which is how I ran into this issue. What are the reasons this error could show up?The executable was copied from another machine.The file does have execution privileges (it gives a proper not-allowed message without them)I've tried copying the file to a different location (same problem)I've tried replacing the file with a fresh copy (same problem)The file does exist. Opening it with pico shows a file with binary data.

General :: Adding A Kernel In GRUB For Kubuntu 9.10: Invalid Magic Number

Apr 19, 2010

I've compiled and added a kernel in Gentoo before. It doesn't seem to go quite as smoothly in Kubuntu 9.10 These are the steps I followed: I unpacked the kernel in /usr/src and ran make && make modules_install succesfully. Then I copied the kernel in arch/x86/boot/bzImage to /boot/bzImage-2.6.32 This entry is the one given by Kubuntu:


menuentry "Ubuntu, Linux 2.6.31-14-generic" {
if [ -n ${have_grubenv} ]; then save_env recordfail; fi
set quiet=1


I just read the script that update grub uses. Changed the name of the kernel from xyz to vmlinuz-2.6.32-generic and it worked.

General :: Running Executable In Bash Script

Mar 27, 2011

I've been trying to write a bash script called that runs an executable that also takes in some parameters and outputs the results to a text file. The executable, sorter, takes in a number parameter. I want to make it so that you can input as many number parameters into as you want and it will run the sorter executable for each one. So far, what I have looks like this:

if [ -z args ]; then
echo "Error"
while [ $# -gt $INDEX ]; do
echo $NUM
echo ./sorter $NUM

My problem is that when I run ./ 100 on my terminal, it just prints this to the screen:
./sorter 100
How can I have so that it properly executes sorter and outputs everything to a text file?

May 11, 2011

I recently got the information that Windows software do not run in Linux as such.

I therefore wish to install 'wine' on my system in order to run the corresponding Windows set-up files (which are executable files). I am running Linux Mint version 10 on my system.

General :: Libraries - Binary Executable Properties : Ldd Alternative?

Mar 23, 2011

The Linux ldd command can show the dynamic libraries used by an executable. It's a bash script.But it seems to be fragile, and does not work on some binaries. Is there an alternative tool? In my specific example, I can use:

% file datab2txt

datab2txt: ELF 64-bit LSB executable, x86-64, version 1 (SYSV), statically linked, for GNU/Linux 2.4.0, not stripped

but ldd fails with:

% ldd -v datab2txt

not a dynamic executable
