How to run .sh files in Linux?

Even though I have posted this in fedora category, it works for all linux distros. To execute/run any .sh files.

run the followig comands:

  • first give execute permission to script file : chmod +x /path/to/scriptfile.sh
  • and to run the script: /path/to/scriptfile.sh
  • if scriptfile.sh is in current directory then you do it with: ./scriptfile.sh

as ./ refers to current directory

after doing this it must be running, if still not then

  • browse to the script file with a file manager
  • right-click to properties
  • open permissions
  • make sure: Allow executing file as the program is checked on.
