    Shell Script for automating WOW launch (Wine 1.4 & .sh)

    Since the latest PPA build really borked my framerate, I figured I'd try to reinstall Wine 1.4. That means I have to manually run an applet with --nohttpauth. I can do this manually by copy-pasting a line of code into the terminal.

    HOWEVER, this is a pain in the butt compared to just running it in WINE 1.5

    I've tried to make a shell script on the desktop to automate launching WOW. One click SHOULD launch Agent.exe and then the WOW launcher.

    cd /home/(me)/.wine/drive_c/users/Public/Application\ Data/
    /home/(me)/.wine/drive_c/users/Public/Application\ Data/ --nohttpauth &
    cd /home/(me)/.wine/drive_c/Program Files\ (x86)/World\ of\ Warcraft/
    /home/(me)/.wine/drive_c/Program Files\ (x86)/World\ of\ Warcraft/World\ of\ Warcraft\ Launcher.exe
    I then flagged it as executable. I'm not a total nooblet, y'know.

    The problem is, when I click on it and hit "execute" in the dialog that pops, I get the following error message:

    Failed to execute child process "/home/(me)/Desktop/" (No such file or directory)
    Anyone got an idea of how to get this working?

    Edit: This is a shell script thread, not a WINE thread. I've got everything working in WINE. All I need is help with this shell script.

    Does it work if you run it from the terminal?
    sh ~/Desktop/
