Ubuntu keyboard shortcut to open terminal window and run shell script

I have a simple bash script that I want to run when I use a certain keyboard shortcut. Right now it seems to kind of work - I see a terminal window open momentarily but the commands don't seem to run correctly. This is the script I'm using:

#!/bin/bash
killall chrome
rm ~/.config/google-chrome/Default/Cookies
google-chrome

Open in new window


Basically all it does it kills Chrome, gets rid of the cookies, then relaunches Chrome. I want this to run with a simply keyboard shortcut. The script itself runs fine inside of Terminal. The only problem I'm having is when trying to run it as the shortcut.
The command I'm using for the shortcut is
gnome-terminal -e "bash ~/Desktop/test.sh"

Open in new window

Well, it seems I have answered my own question. I used a different command:

gnome-terminal -x /home/mvp/Desktop/test.sh

All seems to work now.
