I am using Ubuntu 11.10 win Unity 2D.

I want to have a launcher which launches application (sh file) which outputs many things to console.

gnome-desktop-item-edit can't help.

You would need to run the command in a terminal. So creating a launcher that executes

gnome-terminal -e

should do the trick.
