I have just created a .desktop shortcut on my desktop to launch a shell scrip. The script itself works fine, but its shortcut that doesn't display the icon and double-clicking on it just displays its content in gedit:
[Desktop Entry] Version=1.0 Type=Application Terminal=false Exec=/home/alvaro/Desktop/Laptop_screen_config.sh Name=Screen_config Icon=/home/alvaro/Desktop/Ubuntu/screen.png
It is allowed to execute as a program in its permissions, so that's not an issue:
Does anyone have any ideas why this is happening? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
