    Python & Linux


    So, I've written my first GUI app in python. I've turned it into a
    binary .exe and .app that runs on Windows and Mac respectively, but on my Linux box, where I wrote the thing, I still have to drop to the command line and ./myscript.py. What can I do to make it a "click and run" sort of application in KDE or Gnome on Linux?

    You'll probably have to create a Desktop entry, it seems.
