Thread: Problem running a shell script

  1. #1

    Default Problem running a shell script

    I want to run a program called VisitPC a cross platform remote desktop client and server I downloaded from sourceforge.
    visitpc | Download visitpc software for free at SourceForge.net

    When I use dolphin and click the file " visitpc_launcher.sh " I get a dialog

    " There is no specialized application for files of the type shell script (application/x-shellscript).
    The file can be opened in a more generic application as file type plain text document (text/plain), or you can try to install a specialized application for file type shell script (application/x-shellscript).
    Do you want to try to install a specialized application? "

    with two buttons install & cancel.

    When I click install I get a progress bar checking for additional software then another dialog
    " The software to install could not be found in the currently enabled software repositories.It may be located in other repositories.
    See openSUSE: 安裝其他的軟體 for details.
    Do you want to configure your repositories? "
    with yes / no buttons selecting yes brings up yast software repositories dialog.

    Running the command in console returns
    " If 'visitpc_launcher.sh' is not a typo you can use command-not-found to lookup the package that contains it, like this:
    cnf visitpc_launcher.sh "

    What do I need to run this Java App.

    i've never heard of this application, but what you describe looks as if
    the file visitpc_launcher.sh isn't executable. you can do this either via
    dolphin or konqueror, by right-clicking on the file, ->properties ->
    permissions, and checking the option "is executable". otherwise you can
    open a terminal to the directory the file resides and type "chmod u+x
    visitpc_launcher.sh".

    after that it should be possible to start the launcher, from dolphin or
    from a terminal. (note: if your terminal is in the same directory as the
    script, you'll have to type "./visitpc_launcher.sh" to get the file to
    execute.)
