Shell script won't work. Why?

If I type:

"xmame galaga -fullscreen -nosound"

inside a terminal, I get the game working ok.

If I write the same string to a file and save it as:


xmame galaga -fullscreen -nosound

It won't work. When I click it, nothing happens.

Am I missing something?
Thank you guys!

'Click' the shell script? Did you 'chmod 700' (or 755, if you prefer) it? You could just do an alias for bash but you couldn't click that.
