Create a launcher. And it will run or run in terminal depending on what you selected when creating the launcher. I do not know what version of Ubuntu you have. I use Ubuntu 10.10

In 10.10 you can create a launcher by right clicking the desktop and choosing "Create Launcher". I would guess that it is the same in 10.04. May be different in 11.04's Unity. – Kevin Jul 21 '11 at 16:53

You should run your script from the terminal. First change the permissions by typing in "chmod 755 scriptname" and then run it by typing "./scriptname".
