I created this Desktop icon:

[Desktop Entry]
Encoding=UTF-8
Name=Robomongo
Comment=Launch Robomongo
Exec=/usr/local/robomongo-0.8.4-i386/bin/robomongo.sh
Icon=utilities-terminal
Type=Application
Terminal=true

When i double click on it, it opens a Terminal window in my home directory and no other output gets printed. In the shell, when I type "/usr/local/robomongo-0.8.4-i386/bin/robomongo.sh", I get the Robomongo GUi come up.

Take a look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UnityLaunchersAndDesktopFiles

Maybe you need a Version line?
