I'm new again to using a Linux machine, only really having a lot of telnet Unix experience. I installed cgminer on a Ubuntu install and copied over my Windows bat files to run. But when I click on them I get the four options to run in terminal, display, cancel and run. None of them seems to be working on batch files I've used for several months for Windows cgminer.
Batch files are meant only for DOS, never for unix.
For unix you need shell scripts.
I might help you writing one (and you'll also learn how to navigate in unix, edit files and execute them) if you PM me what you want to achieve.
