I wanted to run this command in playbook app -
this didn't work - so I changed it to
but as it looks like I do not have the permissions to do that. meh.
Is there a way I can run this command on my playbook?
Solved! Go to Solution.

$ ls -la wpa* -rwxr-x--- 1 root nto 174072 Mar 29 12:06 wpa_cli
That shows that only user "root" (permissions rwx) and any user with group "nto" (permissions r-x) can read or execute that file.
There's no chance that on a non-rooted PlayBook any app can execute that file... apps run with restricted permissions that certainly don't include root access, or the powerful "nto" group.

It's a puzzle to me - why document utilities that you can not run? even ping/tracert are restricted... and you want to run wpa_cli! -)))
Basically all these utilites do not exist on Playbook for you.

thanks for you message. Do you know who can deploy apps as "nto"? operators?
why document utilities that you can not run?
