    Default runing qt application on Ubuntu


    I've installed Qt5.5 on Ubuntu 14.04 and I'm trying to run a small application I wrote, but I receive the following error in the "Application Output" window:
    Starting /media/sorin/Windows 7/aplicatie_conturi/build-conturi-Desktop_Qt_5_5_0_GCC_64bit-Release/conturi...
    Failed to start program. Path or permissions wrong?
    /media/sorin/Windows 7/aplicatie_conturi/build-conturi-Desktop_Qt_5_5_0_GCC_64bit-Release/conturi exited with code -1
    I've changed the permission mode on the folder aplicatie_conturi to 777 and I have the same error. Has anyone an idea what could I do so I could have the application work?

    Thanks in advance!

    P.S. Using chmod 777 -R I have:
    sorin@sorin-K54C:~/Desktop$ ls -la aplicatie_conturi
    total 20
    drwxrwxrwx 5 sorin sorin 4096 iul 6 18:21 .
    drwxr-xr-x 5 sorin sorin 4096 iul 6 18:40 ..
    drwxrwxrwx 2 sorin sorin 4096 iul 6 18:20 build-conturi-Desktop_Qt_5_5_0_GCC_64bit-Debug
    drwxrwxrwx 2 sorin sorin 4096 iul 6 18:21 build-conturi-Desktop_Qt_5_5_0_GCC_64bit-Release
    drwxrwxrwx 4 sorin sorin 4096 iul 6 18:20 conturi

    Well, what are the permissions on the executable itself?
    Are you sure this is a Linux build (your path has "Windows 7" in it)?

    You are using different paths unless you have a symbolic link in play here. First, you show that the path using to start your executable is:

    /media/sorin/Windows 7/aplicatie_conturi/build-conturi-Desktop_Qt_5_5_0_GCC_64bit-Release/
    Then you show the permissions for path:
    So, you are changing/showing directory permissions for a different directory path than you are using when your program is launched, right?
    I write the best type of code possible, code that I want to write, not code that someone tells me to write!
