Can you run a shell script without the dialog?
This is pretty self-explanatory. Running a script from the GUI gives the Run in terminal/Display/Cancel/Run dialog box. I'm never going to do anything to the scripts in question again but run them, and I'd rather be able to just go straight into the script as if I was running a regular program. Is there an option for that somewhere or am I stuck with this minor annoyance each time? Thanks in advance.

You could add a custom launcher to the panel.

Okay... What about running from the desktop?

You could also add a custom launcher to the Desktop.

Obviously not self-explanatory enough. What do you mean by "run from the GUI"? Are you referring to a particular launcher?

Okay, now that my common sense module has been imported, that seems pretty obvious. Thanks for the help.

First, the "Run in terminal/Display/Cancel/Run" dialog is NOT usual. We all use different desktops and file managers, so you cannot expect us all to know what you're talking about.

And many scripts are interactive and you might want to edit them, so it wouldn't make sense to just execute them without asking.
