    Geany permissions problem

    I'm trying to run a program in Geany, and when I try hitting F5 for "execute," it just says "permission denied." What's going on? Pretty much, I'm trying to do the same thing as hitting Ctrl + F5 in Microsoft Visual Studio does, the "Build without debugging" command.

    I solved this problem (permission denied ... error 126) just saving my file like "****.cpp" or "*****.c"

    Hello

    I found the solution to this problem.
    Geany doesn't make the script executable and that is why you are getting this error.
    If you create your script or just an empty saved file, and than you make it executable (chmod +x filenaam.extension).
    Open it again with geany en try to run it.
    If everything is correct, you will see that your script is being executed.

    I hope this helps.

    greetings
