It's not a script yet, it's just a text file. In order to let the shell know
that it is actually dealing with a script you can either run bash
<scriptname> oder (better) at a shebang line. Open the file and paste
#!/bin/bash (or #!/bin/sh) inte the first line of the file. Then chmod to
0755 (!) or 0700. The permission 777 means that everybody can run it, which
leads a) to security problems (less important on your personal computer) and
b) to permission confusion if you run it as different users.

Generally I would advise that you run the build process at least one time
per hand. A script makes usually stuff harder to understand if something
goes wrong. They are good though if you want to build scribus on a regular
