I installed TFTPGUI. The only way launch program GUI is run command in console,

python tftpgui.py

Is there way or method launch it from desktop shortcut? I tried create shortcut, placed it on desktop, but there is no Python in programs that listed to select for opening with. Gnome Flashback, Ubuntu 14.04. I tried shell script, but it does not launch anything.

#! /usr/bin/python 
python tftpgui.py

I solved the issue by setting proper option for an "Executable Text Files". The location is bit tricky:

Applications > Accessories > Files > Location options > Preferences > Behavior tab > "Executable Text Files" -> choose "Ask each time".

Click Run when you need launch application.
