Ubuntu :: Make A Executable File Part Of The System Path?
Sep 1, 2010
Morning all , not sure how to put this. I have a .sh executable script I use for video encoding. I want the system to be able to see it no matter where in which folder I am. I want to be able to execute that script in terminal in any folder. How can I make it part of the system path. ? Don't know if my wording is right but I think you guys know what I mean.
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 downloaded the file "bitnami-wordpress-3.0-0-linux-installer.bin", it's a Wordpress stack, with PHP and apache and whatnot.. I am asked to make it executable using "chmod a+x <installer file>"what do i do? cd to where it is, and "chmod a+x <bitnami-wordpress-3.0-0-linux-installer.bin>"?and if yes, i just double click on it afterat to run the installation?
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 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 was reading about Ruby code blocks, but it's all a bit hazy.My questions:1. Can you store executable code in the value part of a hash (err...associative array)2. If you did, how would you call the code?3. If you executed this stored code, would it be possible when doing soto pass in an object to the code that it could use?
I have asked this over on Launchpad and have found bugs filed on the eclipse bug tracker but it seems to be going nowhere so I guess ill ask here.
I am using Eclipse for some development work and having saved a file, defocus the eclipse window (to test changes in a browser) when I refocus the eclipse window I get the following error...
The file 'path omyfile' has been changed on the file system.Do you want to replace the editor contents with these changes?
I have searched and searched and this seems to be a CIFS/SAMBA problem. I even found one solution suggesting that changing his mounts from cifs to smbfs fixed his problem however that would appear not to be an option for me since using smbfs in the fstab causes cifs mounts. This problem would seem to occur in Bluefish as well as some other IDE's so it is not an Eclipse issue.

I need a webserver (LAMP) running inside a virtual machine (#1) running as a service (#2) in headless mode (#3) with part or the whole file system encrypted (#4).The virtual machine will be started with no user intervention and provide access to a web application for users in the host machine. Points #1,#2 and #3 are checked and proved to be working fine with Sun VirtualBox, so my question is for #4:Can I encrypt all of the file system and still access the webserver (using a browser) or will GRUB ask me for a password?If encrypting all of the file system is not an option, can I encrypt only /home and /var/www? Will Apache/PHP be able to use files in /home or /var/www without asking for a password or mounting these partitions manually?
I'm new to Linux world. I'm using Ubuntu 9.04. I'm unable to go online using Ubuntu because I'm unable to run an executable client application provided by my ISP. I called them and they are not able to help me instlling this client applicatoin for me on my Ubuntu. "I cannot go online untill I install this ISP client application on my Ubuntu." I'm entering my ISPs weblink in this blogpost so that it would be easy for you guys to help me resolving this issue. http://www.spacenetindia.net/download.php This is the weblink where I downloaded that ISP client application from. I clicked on this link and clicked on 24online clients.exe tab located on the left and downloaded linuxclient.gz. Please help me if you find any resolution for this issue. Though I tried downloading Wine but I could not as I cannot go onlnie in Ubuntu. In windows I don't know how to install wine to make it work offline in ubuntu.b
I have program (command line) that requires another program be installed and in its path. So I downloaded the file (.tgz), and extracted. I followed the compile and make instructions and ended up with a folder on my desktop that contains the excutable but is not in the path of the the other program. How can I do this..I think that I have about 20 more .tgz files to do this with.
A few days I used the wubi installer to install Ubuntu over Windows. This I did on my C: drive. I also have another partition, the X: which now is my D: drive after I used the gparted live cd to give the system partition more free space. No problems so far.
But now, when I use Clementine Player, I see that it cannot find any of my songs in my library and Deluge has to 'check' my downloads every time I open it after a reboot. My theory is that the folder inside /media/, which contains the file system gets a new name (a 16 digit capital letter/number name) every time I reboot my computer - or maybe every time I use Windows and then Ubuntu again? It's pretty annoying,
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 am unable to create either a file or a directory in a specified path in Linux. I am getting the error "No space left on device". I have checked with df -k and df -i. Free disk space is 28 % and free inodes are 28 %. What else could be the reason?
I'm taking here about tins of directories, thousands of files. I'm looking to find a command that makes me able to move the results above to another path, and to create that path once it doesn't exist like below:
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.
