Hey, so I'm what you would call a noob when it comes to the linux environment. Coming from a windows background my whole life and having little to no experience in linux and it's friendly environments. :)
My problem is that I'm trying to install gvm on my Fedora 20 and have followed the directions on github but have come across a small problem I can't figure out how to solve. Gvm appears to install and give me the option to restart my terminal or to run the shell file gvm-init.sh in my .gvm/bin directory. When I restart the gvm command 'is not found', so I have un-installed and re-installed and restarted my computer. No luck. So I tried to install but then run gvm-init.sh but I get permission denied (while accessing it as a root user (su)). I can open the file in 'vi' but I wouldn't know what to do to give myself the ability to run it. :(
I did find someone with a similar problem, after a long term searching but he simply said " remove the immutable bit" then "make your changes" and the guy responded with "I modifyed my script so they take care about this issue. Now things look okay" But I dont' know how nor could I figure out how to do this. :( Also, there is no 'i' in the listing of permissions? So I'm not sure if this is going to help me.
This is the file-
-rw-rw-r--. 1 riley riley 6848 Dec 5 14:38 gvm-init.sh
Actually, scrap that, I found the problem. The file Didn't have 'execute' box ticked to allow the file to be executed as a program. Then the gvm-init.sh file was looking for files in /root/.gvm because $HOME was set to /root/ changed the shell file to look for the files in 'my home' directory and it works. :)
The first part seems so simple now but didn't see the option last time I looked.
