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?
I hope this post stands in the right section.I have a commandline i need to enter in terminal when i want to run a program. i tought lets put that piece of command in an .sh file and just click the file to run the program (then i dont need to open terminal first an give in the command) however the .sh file does not open the program. so i propably need to make a executable (application/x-executable).
I am fairly new to Linux systems but I have a code that I just compiled and it produced an executable file that I need to run but I have no idea how to run that file. Is there a certain command to type to do it?
i installed "littler" from Synaptic. it's a front end for R, for those curious. it's not in my start menu. i searched for the app and don't know where it is. assuming i can find it, how do i set things up so that i can run it from a listing in the start menu? sorry to be so basic, but i mean from locating this app to getting it to start to making it available in the start menu, how would i do this
It so happens that some files that I am trying to make executable by chmod +x <filename> or otherwise are not becoming executables, rather the tick mark on the option is removed the very instant I put it on . Is there any thread of virus or any other reason for this.
I have written C++ programs on Windows. I am now learning Linux to ensure my software is portable. I can compile and run C++ programs from the bash shell, but I cannot run my executable programs from the GUI.Here is my sample program:

SO I'm not talking about changing the file permissions, The only thing I could find on google was this [URL]Basically can you convert your bash script into a executable file, One that you can't open in text editor?
I created a bash script to help me mount my network shares.However when I link the file to the desktop and dbl click on the link it asks me if I want toCode:RUN IN TERMINAL - DISPLAY - CANCEL - RUNHow can I get it to RUN IN TERMINAL each time I dbl click it?
when I create a new text file in my pendrive, it become executable automatically. The text file name append with asterisk(*). However when I create a text file in Desktop, the created text file is normal and is not executable.

I have downloaded the file "bitnami-wordpress-3.0-0-linux-installer.bin", it's a Wordpress stack, with PHP and apache and whatnot..

So I'm following the online tutorials I've found to install sketchup, and I've run into a snag right off the bat. The instructions I've found say to open the Sketchup exe file by right clicking and selecting open with Wine I do this and I get a box stating that the file is not marked as an executable. How do I fix that? Step by step instructions would be best since I only just installed ubuntu for the first time two days ago
I have recently installed OpenOffice.org and I can't find any executable file that actually starts up OpenOffice.
What is the equivalent to the old "soffice" executable which previously would start up OpenOffice?
I installed by executing the "setup" program after extracting the archive, I selected pretty much all of the items to be installed (at least the essential ones) and then let it install -- I didn't get to choose the path to install to, but I saw it stated that this would be installed under /opt.
I see two directories:
Neither of which contains any readily identifiable file that is the main program. What file should I execute?
I have created a file named as pm under the path /home/ppp/ i.e. /home/ppp/pmTo make it executable, I've used command: chmod a+x /home/ppp/pm while residing in root directory.But while trying to run from root by typing ./pm or within the directory /home/ppp, it was displaying that directory not found.Please help by providing the step by step procedure, so that I would be able to run my file from root or from the directory.
I have a small file (<200 bytes) with x86 instructions which I would like to translate into assembly language. I know gdb has a disassembler, but I have been unable to get gdb to load my file -- it's not in a valid format.
