pixellany: When you say make it executable.... what am I supposed to do?
I was a bit off in my earlier answer. A shell script is a text file and WILL open in an editor if not set up as executable.
To see how it is set: "ls -l" in the directory where the script file is.
To change it: "chmod 755 <filename>"
This is a standard command for scripts, applications, etc. It sets full privileges for root, and read and execute for everyone else.
For more details: "man chmod" and "man chown"
