I'm really new to ubuntu and linux, so everything has flown straight over my head, but this problem is obviously not normal. I've looked all over the place for a solution to this problem, but all the answers to related issues have not helped.
This is just the most recent example, but it applies to all executable programs. Programs do not run, and I receive this message when I do not allow to execute file as program:
Could not display “starbound”.
There is no application installed for “executable” files. Do you want to search for an application to open this file?
When I go to the program's properties and check the box allowing it to run as a program, it simply does nothing.
When I try to run the program through the terminal, it will not allow me. It even shows "starbound" in the ls display. This is the full terminal entry:
root@john-System-Product-Name:/home/john/Extracted_Games/Starbound/linux64# ls asset_packer launch_starbound_server.sh libGLEW.so.1.7 starbound.ico bootstrap.config launch_starbound.sh starbound starbound_server root@john-System-Product-Name:/home/john/Extracted_Games/Starbound/linux64# ./starbound bash: ./starbound: Permission denied
If anyone has a fix or possible explanation for this please respond.
