Hello. I have just updated my 10.10 edition of Linux mint. Thereafter I installed Wine. However, I am having several issues with it. When I try to load windows EXE files it gives me the following error message:
The file '/media/Local Disk/ZIP/PC/Example.exe' is not marked as executable. If this was downloaded or copied from an untrusted source, it may be dangerous to run. For more details, read about the executable bit.
I honestly can't make heads or tails of what I have to do in order to give permission for EXE files. I have tried going into the EXE files properties and tick the permission, but it just automatically unticks itself straight away. No EXE file seems to associate itself with Wiine or the Wine icon either, despite me having set it to do so in the EXE's properties. This is the case with every Windows executable. I have never had this issue with previous Linux distros or Wine. Any "newbie" help would be appreciated.
