'command not found' error when trying to run built executable

Ross Duncan
I have a reasonably complex working python program.

I am new to pyinstaller.

I have managed to create my executable but when it runs all I get is MyProg: command not found.

ls -la shows "x" set OK for all users.

I build with --noupx  --onefile  --debug=all proj.spec

proj.spec is the one auto generated with the addition of a folder of json files for my code.

I understand I could have build issues.

Can anyone set me on the road to finding the solution?

Thanks

Ross Duncan

This doesn't sound like a PyInstaller problem, it sounds like an
execution problem.

How are you executing your program? In Unix-like systems, the current
directory is not part of your PATH, so you have to reference the file
through a relative or absolute path. In most cases where your
executable is in your current directory, you just need to prepend your
call to the executable with "./", for example:

$ ./MyProg

instead of

$ MyProg
