I have some various bash scripts I created, located in my ~/bin directory, to backup my flash drive. Normally, in other distributions I have been able to open, edit the scripts, and execute them right from inside Geany. But for some reason I can't get them to execute from Geany here in Lubuntu.

My machine is a Lubuntu X140e Thinkpad netbook. This OS is Lubuntu 17.10, installed on Jan 13, 2018. All updates have been installed. 

System specs are:

jcig at lubuntu:~$ 

Permissions on ~/bin 

jcig at lubuntu:~$ ls -l

drwxr-xr-- 18 jcig jcig    4096 Feb  3 16:34 bin

Any ideas?

God bless,
