I am getting a Permission denied error while executing the sh INSTALL.sh command in my Linux terminal.

Can any one suggest me how to solve this problem? I getting this error while am installing 94 POS Software.

The piece of code is

INSTALL.sh: line 75: toolchain/INSTALL: Permission denied
INSTALL.sh: line 76: download/INSTALL.sh: Permission denied
INSTALL.sh: line 85: export: /usr/local/arm-
linux/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/sbin:/sbin:/home/manohar/bin': not a valid identifier

    This will probably do you more harm than good, but try sudo ./INSTALL.sh. – cnicutar Jul 14 '11 at 12:07
  • By default sudo isn't enabled, try su -c 'INSTALL.sh'. It will ask your password. – mhitza Jul 14 '11 at 12:11

You should be using sudo to run that.

Run this command inside the directory which contains the file you want to run.

sudo ./INSTALL.sh

If sudo ins't enabled, you can run su -c ./INSTALL.sh

    Also, this needs INSTALL.sh to have execute permissions. If it doesn't work, you'd need to run sudo chmod +x INSTALL.sh. – slhck Jul 14 '11 at 12:59
