Nope, but it would achieve the same thing as the chmod +x command.

Thinkpad's always seem to be highly recommended whenever anybody's asking about what laptop to get.

A script that's been made executable to run in or by bash.

That I can understand, built like the proverbial brick khazi!
Only thing is mine's circa 1998!!
It runs a P2 CPU, 366GHz: Max RAM is 288MB, and the HDD is 3.2GB

When I got it, it only had 192MB RAM and was running XP Pro SP2, I installed SP3 and it kept complaining that there was only 82MB space left on the HDD lol

OK, Ill save it to my home directory, and I'll change the name to "soundcard-on"


Just tried what you say and this is the response:-
mv: cannot stat `soundcard_on': No such file or directory

Notice that for some reason terminal command named soundcard_on not what I changed it to (-on), so I re did the command, but the result is exactly the same! what's wrong?
Extract of my post #69:-

I'm getting very, very confused....maybe its my age! but I don't think that I've had any suggestion that will achieve this move.....have I?

(what's my name again?)

Most likely your current working directory in the terminal and the location of the file are not the same. Where did you save it to? Use the full path of the file.

Code:
sudo mv /path/to/soundcard-on /usr/local/sbin
Or, the file manager for lxde has an option to open the current location in the terminal. Navigate to where the file is with your file manager and hit, I think it's F4, or find the option in one of the drop down menus.

Or just open the file manager as root and move it that way.
Code:
gksudo pcmanfm

OK, I've tucked those two pieces of code away as instructed, and the good news is that having re-booted, nothing untoward seems to hab
ve happened!
The bad news?.........ear splitting silence!

I've opened the Alsa Mixer, and that is just as before, blank!
Do I need to do something else?
I think that there is a post from reed9 which I've not yet carried out, that will upload some script, maybe that's the next thing?

Have a look on that site I mentioned (Thinkwiki), see if there's any clues there.

Have you had a chance yet to run alsamixer from the terminal using its full pathname (as I suggested in post #20)?

Code:
/usr/bin/alsamixer

Nothing seems to go to plan!
I've copied and pasted th script into a leafpad document, saved it to my desktop and when asked to create and name a folder for it, used the same name......it saved to Desktop, doesn't look like a folder icon though, anyway, I opened a termonal and this is the response:-
~ $ sh ./alsa-info.sh
sh: Can't open ./alsa-info.sh


What have I done wrong now??
