How can I run my Qwsv file just by writing qwsv in the
catalog. Linux say's that it isn't a command. BUT when I use
Mc (Midnight Commander) it is a command (green and got a *)
and I can run it and it works. I had this problem with an earlier linux installation, but a guy at a Lan fixed it
for me. And I cant remember how! I am running the newest S.u.S.E.

You don't have the executable path in the PATH environment variable. Linux (or any unix) NEVER looks in directory "." for executables, this is a BAD THING (TM). Under bash you can look at PATH by executing "echo $PATH" and you set it with "export PATH=/dir:/dir/dir:/anotherdir".

Good luck
I would agree with atu's answer.You would only have to type: $./qwsv   ...............
Good Luck.
