Run it from a terminal to see the error.

Hint prefix the file name with ./

When you open up a terminal you are in the "home" directory. If you put the file somewhere else then you will have to change to that directory or provide the full path to file from home. So if you placed the file in the linuxcnc directory you change directory with the "cd" command.

cd linuxcnc

ok i downloaded again and extracted to "Home" apparently that is a a folder that can't be got to with the cd command. "cd \home" then enter command "dir" and all I see is "pauls".
I've downloaded again and am waiting to extract the files ... where the heck should I put them ... can't extract to "home", don't have the right permissions

Thanks for your help

It might be your own "Home Folder" directory (which is /home/pauls/ in the filing system)
You get there most easily with cd ~/

"dir" is a dos command in linux you use "ls"... if you type "pwd" after opening up a terminal you will see the results from "print working directory" command it will be something like "/home/paul" if you download to paul then you can just open a terminal and type in ./dxf2gcode_b02.py and it will attempt to run. BTW, where did you get the file?

YES I've found it thank you, thank you. Now I enter /dxf2gcode_b02.py or dxf2gcode_b02 and I get "no such file or directory" or "command not found". dir shows it there

pwd shows home/pauls, ls shows that it is in the directory neither /dxf2gcode_b02.py or dxf2gcode_02.py will work. Don't remember where I got it where do you suggest and where should I extract it to

thanks for the help
