I think I have done the same as you other than of course my path and file name is different, but correct, same thing. Here is what I understood you to do with the script.
# declare STRING variable
#print variable on a screen
read -p "press enter to continue"
And here is my desktop icon
Name=Run My script
I of course set both to executable. When I click the icon nothing happens.
When I run it in tilix it is fine.
press enter to continue
This is my first experience with tilix. Is this something specific to tilix where I am trying to do something that doesn’t play?
It seems like the only way I can get a desktop icon to open tilix is…
And so it will open but it won’t run anything I add beyond that. The only thing I have been able to add to that line that works is
Then it opens tilix in the directory my script is in and I can type the command to run it and it runs.
Very confused lol. Of course ultimately I am trying to get a desktop icon to run tilix and open a script in the same directory so I created the hello world one there to see if it was something wrong with their script to start their software. I am now wondering if it is something to do with me having (base) on the far left of my tilix prompt since installing miniconda that was needed for this software?
