Start menu behaviour

I have a very simple and primitive script that requests the name of a
graphic file and then proceeds to display the graphic using the
display command from imagemagick.

The script behaves as it should, and the script directory is on my
path.

When I put an entry in the start menu as follows :

Exec <whatever> exec mydisplayscript &

then clicking on this entry on the start menu produces zilch.

Changing my script to use xli, xv or qiv produces no better result.

Also, a start menu entry like :

Exec <whatever> exec xv &

works fine, but for some reason,

Exec <ImageMagick> exec display &

does not work, while "display" entered at the command line works well.

Would somebody please let me know what I am missing here.

Thanks in advance.
