    Help for a poor linux newbie??

    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
