TekknoDraykkoGood evening from North Carolina. Is there anyone home?00:12
TekknoDraykkoLooks like a full house.00:13
TekknoDraykkoI'm a novice Xubuntu user and I have a question about changing the permissions on a file00:13
TekknoDraykkoIt seems that whenever I try to use chmod +x <filename> the permission doesn't change00:14
knomeTekknoDraykko, in what sense?00:15
azzenovic_how exactly?00:15
TekknoDraykkoI've tried logging in using sudo -i but the result is that the executable permission does not get set00:15
knomehow do you determine it doesn't?00:15
TekknoDraykkoWhen I type: "ls -l" on the file name, the permission isn't set00:16
knomeok, so which xubuntu version are you using?00:16
TekknoDraykkoHold on, let me check...00:17
TekknoDraykkoXubuntu 14.0400:19
knomeusing any PPAs?00:19
TekknoDraykkoWhat's a PPA?00:20
knomethen likely not...00:20
TekknoDraykkoLOL! yep...that's a safe bet (unless it's something that's installed automatically with Xubuntu)00:21
knomesoo.. what's the file you are trying to make executable?00:21
TekknoDraykkoNetbeans installation00:21
TekknoDraykkohold on let me get the filename00:22
bazhang!info netbeans00:22
ubottuPackage netbeans does not exist in vivid00:22
TekknoDraykkoI think I might have an idea...if it doesn't work, I'll be back.00:24

brainwashif there are problems, then you should consider filing bug reports. maybe even test the current development release (15.10 beta)08:42
brainwashto make sure that things get resolved08:42
vista__oh hey brainwash, didn't see your message there09:42
