I'm using elementary Os. I tried to install vlc tar. Got an error after extracting package "$./configure" bash:./configure:permission denied

  • 1. List the permissions of the configure script. 2. Is vlc available in your package repository? 3. Should you run configure with root permissions? – eyoung100 Jul 25 '15 at 18:08
  • Please provide the exact input and output, properly formatted. – Mikel Jul 25 '15 at 18:09

It's a little unclear from your question which part you typed.


chmod +x configure
