I changed the perms on to u+x. Didn't help obviously. What
should th eperms be for an image file?

Aha, gotcha.  This should be documented (or fixed...).

You cannot do gst-load on the system image because it's not writeable by you. You need to create one with:

   gst -i

or for example

   gst -I ~/test/ -i

and then

   gst-load Whatever

For this reason, "gst-browser" actually loads the browser but does not save the image---the saving occurs from the File/Save menu item, which will pop up a dialog if the image is not writeable.

After you have an image, you can start it with -I or you can make it executable and just execute it.
