Hi I'm trying to start Fritzing using a bash script.


I did sudo chmod +x /usr/bin/fritzing but I get a

bash: /usr/bin/fritzing: /usr/bin: bad interpreter: Permission denied".

What does the bad interpreter mean? And why am I getting a permission denied even after chmoding the bash script which is in /usr/bin.

First you should verify the paths to the binaries:

    #which bin   
    #which fritzing

Also the second line should be like this , lets assume that path is correct.


there should be no dot . at the start
