Ubuntu :: Cant Make Files Executable?

May 28, 2011

I cant make files executable anymore.using chmod or from file properties.. it isn't working.
AS far as I remember, I didn't make any changes in the user settings and my account has the administrator rights. For an un-executable file, say a jpg or a txt, it can be done.but doesn't happen with a .sh, .py or any other xecutable. chmodi-ing shows no error, but the file isn't executable. Through the GUI, when I check the box , its immediately unchecked again.

General :: Make All Files Non-executable Recursively Using Find Without Affecting Directories?

Sep 26, 2010

I need to strip the executable flag from all files within a certain directory and sub directories. Right now I'm doing it with a 2 step process

find /dir/ -type f -exec chmod ugo-x {} ;
find /dir/ -type d -exec chmod ugo+rx {} ;

Is it possible to modify the first line so that I can strip exec flag from all non-directory files? Since this needs to be done on a fairly regular basis across a lot of directories and files, I'd prefer not to use a bash script which would slow it down.

Ubuntu :: Cannot Make The File Executable?

Mar 22, 2011

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.

Oct 14, 2010

I just upgraded to 10.10 (everything was working fine in 10.04). I have .jar files that in 10.04 would execute with OpenJDK. Now I get an error message, telling me that it is blocked:

"The file '[path]' is not marked as executable. If this was downloaded or copied from an untrusted source, it may be dangerous to run. For more details, read about the executable bit."

I try to set it as executable like it was before, and it's a no go. My checkmark takes then quickly disappears before my eyes.

OpenSUSE :: Can't Run Executable Files?

Mar 29, 2011

I've always been able to run my shell scripts and other executable files using dot slash, ie: ./runfile.shAfter doing a fresh 11.4 install, I cannot run my scripts. Even if I 'source' the file, it won't run. Why?This is an example of the files that will no longer run. Permissions look normal to me, but there is an * at the end of the filename. I think that just means it's executable, but I've never seen it on my systems before.
