bash and env: something: Permission denied

I use openSuse Leap 42.1.

I had installed Skype long time ago. And it worked all the time. But recently it stopped start and when I run it from terminal I receive an error:

env: /usr/lib/skype/skype: Permission denied 

I had googled this error but no luck. Now I have installed new version of Android Studio and when it runs and download SDK and tools it said:

Unable to run mksdcard SDK tool 

I went to terminal again and run mksdcard in it and get an error:

bash: ./mksdcard: Permission denied 

My last installation of the previous version of the Android Studio was successful. I have tried install previous version now and get this error too.

I consider that these errors have one nature. But all my research don`t bring me success.

Could someone help me to solve this problem?


Well, it really sounds like a Permission error. Have you checked the executables you are trying to run?

ls -l /usr/lib/skype/skype

This should output the permissions of the file (Read, Write, eXecute), respectively for the user, the group it belongs to, as well as the other users.

Since you are getting this error on more than one occasion, it sounds more like a group issue. You may for some reason no be a member of a required group. To tell what groups you are part of, you can use the groups command.

Of course, this is just an hypothesis.
