How to run scripts from Gnome Launcher -- not in the terminal

I want to use the Gnome Launcher to launch a script I made but it will only work if I select "Application in Terminal." It will not launch if I use "Application". I've also noticed that my script will only run in the terminal regardless of how I launch it. Fedora will not let me just double click the file and "Run" the script. I don't want to open a terminal every time I run the script.

bump. I have this exact problem. Any solution? I tried dumping output to null, but it didn't work. For some reason the sudo permissions are different when the terminal is involved?

No I have not found a solution. I just have them run in the terminal now and leave it open.

You could try setting the value "Terminal=false" in the .desktop file corresponding to your launcher. I don't know if this will work though. May be worth a try!

The .desktop might be in one of the many places (/usr/share/applications for many applications, ~/.local/share/applications, etc.)
