Linux newbie having trouble installing

Post by Shemp » Wed Dec 28, 2011 12:21 am

I've got a new install of Ubuntu 11.10 32 bit & I can't get the Twonkyserver script file download to run. I have downloaded the file several times, so it's not a damaged file.

When I double-click the file gedit opens with nothing in it's window & just sets there. I have moved to the folder where the file is in the terminal, logged in as root and then typed:


then hit enter and I get sh: can't open

Other similar attempts through the terminal normally end up with a “file not found” among other returns.

Also, can I rename this script to something short to help reduce the chances of a syntax error?

I've emailed Twonky support, but haven't heard back from them yet. Can someone please help me get this script run?

The file needs to have the correct permissions:

Code: Select all

chmod +rx twonkymedia*.sh
The run it explicitly from the current directory:

Code: Select all

No longer running Twonky
