You should be able to run the script typing:

$ chmod 755 ./scripts/replace-md5sums.py
$ ./scripts/replace-md5sums.py

There are times where the user you are currently logged with just don't have the permission to change file mode bits. In such cases if you have the root password you can change the file permission this way:

$ sudo chmod 755 ./scripts/replace-md5sums.py
