Hi I have this file: -rwxr-xr-x 1 br2 users 1678728 Jun 15 2014

If I click it, it tells me it is executable and asks if I want to
execute it or open it. Annoying.

Can I make it click and execute?
That's up to the program that you are running which displays the icon
or entry for that executable. It is a security measure, and a very
important one, that differentiates yet Linux from Windows. It is
intentionally done to bother you and ask if you really want to execute
that file or open it.

OK, so I don't think it's possible. I tried copying a .desktop file and
changing the program but it
has to be run from inside a folder where the license is. Give up:(

I just ran into this the other day.
I seem to remember that the same screen that asked me if i wanted to run it or
also gave me an option to make my choice permanent. I didn't have to set up and
desktop file. The next time I clicked it, it just ran.

After all is said and done, more is said than done.
