Before I add more detail to my question, I have to say something very important:
Yes, my script has "Allow executing file as program" turned on.
The question itself:
For programming reasons (shared libraries), I can't execute my program just from the executable, because I need to access
LD_LIBRARY_PATH before executing the program. I created this script to do this (baring in mind this is my first time ever writing a script):
#!/bin/bash #Get the current directory and append the SO's location currentDir=$(pwd)'/libs/' #Change the library path export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$currentDir #Run the program ./program
After running this from the terminal I thought that it has worked, there were no errors and the program didn't complain about shared libraries. But unfortunately, if I try to double-click the
.sh file from Nautilus, nothing happens. The worst part as well, is that since I'm running it from the GUI, I have no idea what error it is getting. I'm running Ubuntu 14.04 and the executable is a C++ program using the SFML libraries (Yes I could just have the dependencies, but SFML isn't commonly installed on Linux computers, and this is besides the point).
notify-send $LD_LIBRARY_PATHbelow the line
export…and test it again.
cd "your path even with spaces"
