How to install and make runable an .sh script Desktop Maven


I've spent a half hour Googling about making an .sh executable but not found anything that works in my system. I'm trying to install/run/make executable the script at this link for saving/restoring desktop icon positions:

http://www.chateaumezcal.com/software/desktop_maven.htm

I'm to the part about double clicking after which I get the "Application Finder" menu but the instructions are not clear about what you pick for this; "terminal" did not work.

I'm using Linux Mint 19 Tara, Ubuntu & Gnome

did you fail to read this part in the beginning?
Code:
It has been tested with:
Ubuntu 14.04 with Nautilus --- yet to be done
Mint 18.1 Cinnamon with Nemo
Mint 18.1 Mate with Caja --- yet to be done
Mint 18.2 Cinnamon with Nemo
Mint 18.2 Mate with Caja
It SHOULD work with other systems, as long as they are using Nautilus, Nemo or Caja. In the event that it does not work on your system,
please let me know by email, and I will try to make the necessary code adjustments for you.
there is nothing about GNOME in that even.

It must be a typo. Nautilus aka Gnome files is a file browser not a desktop.
