I'm getting this on linux:

>ERROR b.n.p2p.network.TorNetworkNode: Tor node creation failed: java.io.IOException: java.io.IOException: Cannot run program "/mnt/pen/Bisq/btc_mainnet/tor/tor" (in directory "/mnt/pen/Bisq/btc_mainnet/tor"): error=13, Permission denied 

however it seems that the tor file has correct (executable) permission:

>ls -l /mnt/pen/Bisq/btc_mainnet/tor

This must be something related to running from usb flash drive...
Right, just a glimpse at /etc/mtab and I see this:
 >/dev/sda2 /mnt/pen ext4 rw,nosuid,nodev,noexec,relatime,data=ordered 0 0

Critical bit is `noexec` which means that executables cannot be run from that partition.

A quick fix is to add dedicated entry just for mounting usb flash drive with Bisq:
>/dev/sda2       /mnt/Bisq       auto    noauto,user,exec        0 0

Now I can run Bisq from my usb flash drive with `--appDataDir=/mnt/Bisq/Bisq`.
