I've recently downloaded a game (Mark of the Ninja from Humble Bundle 9 to be exact) to play on Ubuntu. From what I can tell after extracting the game, it is stand-alone and doesn't require installation on the computer you want to play it on (I want to play it off my flash drive at university). However, as I don't have root access on the computers at university, I can't use
chmod +x ninja-bin to allow executing the main ninja-bin.sh file as a program instead of opening it in gedit. Also, when I try executing it via the terminal using
./ninja-bin I get
bash: ./ninja-bin: Permission denied. Is there any workaround for this for which I don't need root access? Or should I just not try to play games on a computer which I don't have root for?
