I had tried with #!sh and after your answer, tried again with #!/bin/sh

I made it executable from the properties editor but "newfile" was only created 
if I launched the script from a shell.

No, see above.

What I need to know is not where the link to application is but where the 
application itself is (along with the needed libraries).

Here it is:
	echo "script started" >> script.txt	

To sum it up issuing from a shell: "./test_shell_launcher.sh"
creates the file script.txt and causes a sudoku grid to appear on the screen.
Clicking only produces a short hard disk activity.

P.S.   Perhaps at this point it is relevant to add   (?)
Konqueror 3.0.4 (using KDE 3.4.0 Level "b" SUSE 9.3)

Thank you all for answers      Perry
