actually this may or may not work depending on whether you are in the desktop directory.  before you try this, make sure you have cd'ed into the desktop directory.  alternatively, you could just use the full path, something like:

/home/user/Desktop/mythrename.pl --help

that may not be correct for your particular system though.  that would work for a fedora system after you replaced "user" with your username.
