I'm having issues with my new linux setup - I've installed nodemon as a local dependency (NOT globally) and I'm trying to execute it from my package.json "start"-script. I'm getting this permission error.
sh: 1: nodemon: Permission denied

My secondary drive was incompatible with my linux OS in terms of permissions, as it was an NTFS partition.
I ended up moving everything to my primary drive, and of course permissions were working again, allowing me to execute local dependencies.
I guess the solution to my problem, had I relied on keeping projects on the secondary drive, would be to format it to a format compatible with Linux permissions.
