    How to make an .sh run in Terminal

    I know, not the most interesting question.

    But I made an update.sh that I want to NOT have to type ./update.sh to after navigating into the directory everytime.
    I chmod it but it still won't open in Terminal. When I try to choose open with: I cannot find terminal?

    So I tried to add it to PATH and further more follow this page http://linuxcommand.org/lc3_wss0010.php
    but I don't know where .bash_profile or .profile file to make it last.

    My issue is that I rather want to just double click it on desktop to make it execute?

    How do I do this?
    I would love to change the world, but they will not give me the source code!

    Make sure your .sh is correct and works from command line.
    Then you can edit your DE options to open it with double click, or add it to crontables or /etc/init.d/ to run it i.e when system boots.
    Besides, whats your problem with terminal? You wont do much on kali with just double-clicking.

    Hi, thanks

    Nothing wrong with my terminal, it works there.
    But it is an update script to apt-get and I do not want to type in the ./update.sh as I would then need to have the script in the root so I would not need to navigate to a perticular folder.
    Time consuming!!!

    I want to execute from desktop or place the script in the menu somehow, ease of use.
    What is DE options?

    PS. here is the content of the file

    !#/bin/bash

    apt-get update
    apt-get upgrade -y
    apt-get autoremove
    I would love to change the world, but they will not give me the source code!
