I have a storage drive I normally mount just clicking on the disc in the file browser. However, I want to be able to run some bash scripts from that drive. When I try
./script.sh I get Permission Denied. How can I set it up so I can run scripts from this drive?
There is a simple work around, instead of
You should check the first line of script.sh to confirm which shell to use.
Mount with command line, you can use the
exec option as follow
mount -o exec <device> <mount-point/path> mount -o exec /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom
If the disc is automounted, you will have to un-mount(not eject) it with file manager first.
This is the complicated way and is answered in this post.
