[lubuntu-users] Can't execute bash scripts from Geany

I have now learned that if I go into Geany and go to Edit/Preferences/Terminal and enable "Execute programs in the VTE", my scrips WILL run inside Geany's own vte.

So, it must be an issue with LXTerminal not allowing scripts to run from outsiders.

Is this the way it's supposed to be in Lubuntu? If so, I can just use Geany's VTE.

God bless,

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:

Any ideas?
