I have a little 2 line script. I am running Ubuntu. I want to just double click it and run it (like a batch file).

When I do double click it, it is opened in the text editor? Can someone remedy this?

What's the filename?

Also, you could post the contents of the script if you like.

chmod a+rwx /path/to/file

If you're going to use chmod, at least use it properly. It's good that you're no longer using octal mode. It's bad that you're repeating all the same mistakes. Never set all permission bits unless that's what you really want to do.

chmod +x /path/to/file

How hard is that?

@Ragnarok30: I assume you're using Gnome. Gnome will ask you what to do with any file with execute permissions. Just click Run and it'll run go.

Oh wow. I should have known this. You guys are really remarkable sometimes. I have to goto work now, I'll have to try this in the evening.

This is what I'm trying to pull off if you guys are interested. Shut down your PC via SMS
