sounds like you do not have write permission to /media/sdb1/Linux/jin.
did you cd into the jin directory and run the command?
it worked that way before.
could you post the output of
ls -l /media/sdb1/Linux/jin
did you unpack the program as yourself or with a sudo ?
I have entered the command you suggested and I got this:
luc@luc-desktop:~$ ls -l /media/sdb1/Linux/jin chess/jin-2.14.1/jin
ls: /media/sdb1/Linux/jin: No such file or directory
ls: chess/jin-2.14.1/jin: No such file or directory
This looked like it was caused by the space in the directory name, so I renamed it to jinchess
without the space, and then tried again. This time I got:
luc@luc-desktop:~$ ls -l /media/sdb1/Linux/jinchess/jin-2.14.1/jin
-rwxrwxrwx 1 root luc 668 2007-08-01 23:03 /media/sdb1/Linux/jinchess/jin-2.14.1/jin
I have no idea what the ls-command does, but at least it seemed to do something. So I also removed the space from the command in the launcher and... it works!
I never would have thought it would be this simple... Gosh, I feel such a newbie...
Anyway, thank you for your help!
