Whenever in gnome you open any text file , you get an annoying message box each time asking “Do you want to run x.txt or Display its content? ”. “ x.txt is an executable text file” .

To get rid of this annoying message box —

In the nautilus, Edit -> Preferences -> Behaviour

Check the radio button next to “ view executable text files when they are opened” .

File Management Preferences

And now next time file will open directly and no such message box will irk you
