Make install error.

make[1]: execvp: ./scripts/install_help.sh: Permission denied
make[1]: *** [do_install] Error 127

i changed the path of install_help.sh in the make file to full absolute path . then i got this.

make[1]: Entering directory `/home/harkirat/Downloads/FBReader-master/fbreader' . /home/harkirat/Downloads/FBReader-master/fbreader/scripts/install_help.sh desktop /usr/share/FBReader/help -e usage /bin/sh <platform> <install_dir>

Are you using sudo before the commands? For instance:

sudo make <add the rest of command here>

That's probably what the permission denied error is all about.
