Re: Can't mark files as executable
unfortunately the option to mark a file as executable from the properties window is non existent in xfce4, which is the default version of xfce that comes with xubuntu as of 10.04 onwards. so commandline is really the only way to go, its a minor inconvenience considering the raw performance you get out of xfce.
the path of file is simply the directory the file is in, example /home/yourname/downloads/yourfile.exe
your in xfce4 doubtlessly so you should have an option in your context (right click menu) marked "open terminal here"
use that, then use command
if you dont have said option, open terminal from your applications menu,
then use the change directory command to navigate to the file,
it usually starts you off in your home directory, and for the sake of an example your file is in the downloads folder so an example of the command would be
hope this helps. throw us another post if it doesnt and include screenshots of exactly what your doing, and of the terminal window output, and we will see what we can do.
chmod +x filename.exe
