    Ubuntu problem

    When ever I try to run some executable from Windows drive, terminal says "Permission denied".
    I am using Ubuntu 10.10. Facing the same problem when I try to run some program from CodeBlocks or Codelite.

    Code:
    anirban@anirban-Studio-1555:~$ cd /media/WORKS
    anirban@anirban-Studio-1555:/media/WORKS$ gcc a.c
    anirban@anirban-Studio-1555:/media/WORKS$ ./a.out
    bash: ./a.out: Permission denied
    anirban@anirban-Studio-1555:/media/WORKS$

    What are your execution permission on the directory ("ls -al")?

    I'm assuming that directory is mapped? If so have a look in your fstab, is that partition mounted with noexec?

    Also does the a.out file have execution privs?

    I think the partition does not have exec permission.
    Any help on this please?

    just move the file to your hard drive, chmod +x a.out, and run

    Wink Partition does not have exec permission

    Ubuntu 10.10 changed the default mount options for ntfs filesystems.

    Some people make that Paradas en el camino...: Ubuntu 10.10 - Maverick Meerkat

    I hope it can help you...

    I believe the permission denied is coming in by not being mounted to the /media drive. Try mounting it first

    Alternative; copy the file from Windows to Ubuntu; then do whatever you need with it!
