I have just installed Ubuntu 12.04, I used ntfs-config to auto-mount the NTFS partition on boot and I checked that the fstab file is configured as usual with ntfs-3g and with write and execute permissions.

I also verified that all files are listed with rwx to everybody.

The problem is that whenever I try to run Linux executable files (Linux binary) located on the NTFS partition, it says: no such file or directory.

Any help is appreciated.
