Ok....this is not strictly C programming.... but what the hell....


I have loaded Kylix & Jbuilder on my new linux box. Jbuilder is fine, but Kylix refuses to launch....


When I close down gnome, I see the following...


/bin/sh: /root/kylix/bin/startkylix: Permission denied

This is with my main login. If I go in as root.... I'm fine....

How do I sort this so I can use my main account??

This may be an elementary thing to you, but its a pain in the arse to me... Please help and I'll promise to stick with linux and get rid of windows forever ::fingers crossed::

chmod +x /root/kylix/bin/startkylix
that's a wierd installation placed I'd expect they'd
put it in /usr/local/bin
