View Full Version : [ubuntu] Ubuntu 10.10 binary executable files permission denied

October 14th, 2010, 06:24 PM

I recently upgraded from Ubuntu 10.04 to 10.10. However I am facing problems, relating to executing files (say binary files like ./a.out which you get after compiling a "C program") which are present in mounted partitions. I tried to change permissions of the files, directories etc but all in vain! I also tried to (partition directory > right click > permissions > check out box execute :Allow executing files as a program) but the status again reverts back, and I am not able to execute the files at all!!!! All i get is

bash: ./a.out: Permission denied

PS: The files run perfectly in Ubuntu 10.04.

Please help,Thanks in advance.
