Could it be an ownership issue that can be fixed by chown?

However, there's one things consistently annoying me: I used to put some of my codes into my FAT32-formatted flash drive and edit, compile, run them just in place. But in Xubuntu, the drive is mounted automatically with all file permissions set to 644, which means all files in the drive won't have executable permission, and I am forced to either remount the drive with correct option or copy the whole thing into my hard drive in order to run the compiled program.

As far as I know, many desktop environment, including both my old ROX-desktop PC and my Macbook Pro mounts FAT32 drives with 777 permission.
