Nothing happens when the script has extension .sh (Shell Script),
without extension (Plain Text File) it opens Kwrite.
I guess I must place something in the "Application Preference Order" of
properties, but what? (example .sh files in bin also had Kwrite!)
I would also prefer to avoid this desktop icon

I must know where my app resides, will try to find out when first part of

I belive that will not be a problem because my app can be launched from its
icon on a machine with Qt4 installed, the shell wrapper is only there to make
it work on a "naive" machine.
Thanks a lot Perry
