I've compiled rtl_acars.c with this:

gcc -o rtl_acars rtl_acars.c `pkg-config --cflags --libs librtlsdr 
libusb` -lpthread -lm

without any error. It produced an executable file named rtl_acars

However when I enter

./rtl_acars -f 131550k

I get this error message : bash: ./rtl_acars: Permission denied

What can be wrong? I use ubuntu 12.04 (sorry I am new to Linux)

Appreciate your help.
