Solved Why am i denied permission when I try to open and .odt file?

Specs: Linux i686
I go to konsole in Ubuntu, type in /home/tim/c5a/kyle.odt to open a file and it says "permission denied".
Why might that be? Wouldn't it open in Libre office so I can read it? I could just go through the gui to open it but I am trying to learn the commands in the command prompt.
Thanks.
Tim

✔ Best Answer
The message is telling you that your .odt file is not an executable file. You need to open it with the appropriate executable program (Libre Office). I believe the executable name if "libreoffice", so try:

libreoffice /home/tim/c5a/kyle.odt

or

libreoffice ~/c5a/kyle.odt
