Debian 8 will not allow double click run of .sh files
I recently had a server crash and decided to upgrade my Debian to the newest since I had to rebuild anyway. Now that I have I can no longer run .sh files. No idea why.
I have used chmod to set owner and group and made certain I have execute perm set. I checked that I have the latest bash.
Still, when I double click an .sh file as I did with the old debian it will not run, it just opens the editor. Also, properties does not offer the option to "run as program" as the old version did.
What has changed?? Any clues???
BTW: the script is the same one the old system was using, no changes to it. Tried recreating as a new file as well. no luck
The script opens xterm and executes a java based program... Yes I have latest xterm and yes latest java is installed. the script commands will open a new xterm and run the program if typed into a terminal manually.
