(assuming you will run in problems which might relate to those fine details as the used shebang. They might not relate to it, but at least you can exclude it with shellcheck). I guess i always prefer asking in a forum or irc channel, as i get better explanations and extra-info ... but it is a good tool.
Shell Checking, it is not completely accurate but it is still a useful tool, thanks

BW-userx and nodir,

Many thanks for your additional great pointers which I certainly can use in the future. ShellCheck is such an invaluable tool. It will be my constant shell-script tutor for good. I owe you more than I can express.

BW-userx,

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you all. I could not resist the temptation to add the following to my thread to close the year. All comments are welcomed.

Another Solution: Copying Script to Desktop
I discovered this interesting method long ago and have been using it oft and on. However, I have not done enough investigation to verify that it works with all commands or other cases.

1. Just copy the script to the Desktop.
2. After clicking on its icon, you'll be asked to select one of 4 displayed options: Run in Terminal, Display, Cancel, Run
3. Pick Run in Terminal.

Although such a shortcut is not as neat as a real launcher, it is easy to implement and works just as the original script in this particular single case under consideration. This shortcut works on my Linux Mint 18.2 Sonya/Desktop Cinnamon 3.4.3 computer and Linux Mint 18.3 Sylvia/Desktop MATE 1.18.0 computer.

you might want to edit that and tell everyone what desk top you are using, because Linux has many.
