    [SOLVED] Making a script executable

    Hey guys, I am trying to create a uTorrent executable script. My instructions were to type "sudo chmod a x /usr/bin/utorrent" to make the script executable (the shell script is correctly in the folder) but "a" is not an option for chmod. Does anyone know how I can make this script executable?

    Find the file in Nautilus, right click on the file, go to Properties --> Permissions --> Execute (Allow executing file as a program).
