Sorry to bother you again.
I just wanted to make sure of a few things real quick. The file that I
got from building the linux app was not an executable file on windows.
It's not supposed to be -- it's an executable for Linux.
I opened it up with notepad and got a bunch of symbols. Should it have
been an executable on windows or is it setup to only execute on linux.
Only for Linux.
Also when I get it onto linux, is there a specific command to run the
If you're in a desktop manager (ie, not the command line) just double click
also how exactly do I check the permissions and what do I need to check
for when I put it on the linux box.
I mentioned it in the email you quoted back.
Bring it over to Linux, and in the command line, type this:
chmod a+x /path/to/the/MyApplication
(replace /path/to/the/ with the actual path to the application, or just
cd into the same directory that MyApplication resides and skip the
absolute path altogether).
This makes sure that the file is set to executable. Then you can just
double click on the file to run it.
> Lastly, being that I am passing my values through a socket to a
text box on rb, will that textbox code error when it is on linux or will
the values still be passes without a problem?
Shouldn't be an issue on Linux (or Mac).
