This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

When you say "it opens as a text editor" do you mean that a new text editor window opens and tries to display the contents of the executable or that the program executes and displays an empty text editor window? Can you add a screenshot please? –  hmayag Oct 17 '13 at 9:11

You'll need to make it executable. This is just a simple permission flag. Either:

  • chmod +x filename
  • Right click it, Properties, Permission tab, check the executable box.
