I am trying to run camera.sh which I made executable by

chmod 755 camera.sh

It works okay, but when I run it I get the error...

root@raspberrypi:/home/pi/timelapse# ./camera.sh
-bash: ./camera.sh: Permission denied

I even logged in as root, but I still got the same error. I can't even run chown/chmod/owner commands to 777. It pretty much gives me a permission error for everything I do.

Permissions on file shown below:

root@raspberrypi:/home/pi/timelapse# ls -l camera.sh 
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 234 Jul 29 10:02 camera.sh 

I am running Raspbian and SSHing from my desktop.

Any ideas?

  • Is timelapse.sh a typo for camera.sh? What does ls -l camera.sh report?

  • @joan Yeh, it's a typo, timelapse.sh should be camera.sh. But that is the command I am running (Now edited the question)

  • goto your non-root login. Then, try this chmod +x camera.sh. Do not prefix the command with sudo. Then try running it.

The problem seemed to be a wrong fstab entry and a corrupted OS. See the comments and discussion in chat, between the OP and me, to troubleshoot such issues, in future.
