Description Jan Martinek 2007-04-17 05:57:45 EDT
Description of problem:
As you can see:
$ ls -l /usr/bin/pygtk-demo
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 186 Feb  6 03:33 /usr/bin/pygtk-demo

/usr/bin/pygtk-demo is not executable (due to permissions), so it must be started as

python /usr/bin/pygtk-demo

instead of simple typing


I consider this as a minor bug, but for some users it may be confusing that 
there is something not executable in /usr/bin/. Moreover, the counterpart
"gtk-demo" is executable and it would be fine to deal the same way with both

A (temporar) workaround is
# chmod a+x /usr/bin/pygtk-demo
Comment 1 Matthew Barnes 2007-04-17 08:32:47 EDT
Thanks for reporting this.

Fixed in both Rawhide and Fedora Core 6, but I'm going to wait for something
more significant before pushing a Fedora Core 6 update.
