Re: [Script] convert episodes or main-feature from DVD or BD or convert multiple files (on any os)

Post by FalCT60 »

Hello,
I just discovered this thread a few days ago, and followed (I hope) all the steps described. Well, I confess I did not read the whole thread.
I run fresh new Ubuntu 20.04.
Ruby is installed, along with some other packages that were suggested.
The scripts have been downloaded and extracted into my home, in a folder named Handbrake.
Invoking HandBrakeCli --help works, so no need, I guess, to copy anything into the folder, unlike Windows and MacOS.
However, trying to launch the script fails :

Code: Select all

jean-luc@E-5540:~$ ./handbrake/hb.rb
bash: ./handbrake/hb.rb: Permission non accordée
jean-luc@E-5540:~$
and, if I sudo :

Code: Select all

jean-luc@E-5540:~$ sudo ./handbrake/hb.rb
[sudo] Mot de passe de jean-luc : 
sudo: ./handbrake/hb.rb : commande introuvable
jean-luc@E-5540:~$ 
I am doing something wrong, obviously, but I still cannot understand what.
Maybe a little help ?
Rgrds,
J.-Luc

Well, deleting the whole directory and its content, re-unzipping and re-enabling the script as executable... and it works. :roll:
I am now going to see what I can really do with it.
