".sh" file(s) help

Postby mblaker » Sun Dec 02, 2012 10:17 pm

Ok, Here is my question.
I create some ".sh" files sometimes and run them time to time, my issue..well question is this...
In the attached image on the "Execute: [] Allow executing file as program" part is there any way to set that to enabled by default?
where when I double click to open/run it it will still come up saying "Run in terminal / Edit / Cancel"
Currently I have to manually turn that on for each one I make, was wondering if I could set it so if the file is a ".sh" then "Execute: [] Allow executing file as program" is enabled.

Take a look here: https://sites.google.com/site/tipsandtr ... able-files. Please note that you read .sh were is stated .bin or .run. So, filename.bin must be read by you as filename.sh!
