Note that both Pharo and Squeak come bundled with the Cog VM these days,
and Cog's file name is "squeak". On my Debian 6, the script to start my
server looks like this:

    /usr/bin/setuidgid app1 \
        /pkg/coglinux/squeak -vm-display-null -vm-sound-null app1.image

/pkg/coglinux contains my Cog installation, based on direct download.
(Not sure whether Cog is packaged on Debian.)

It looks like your setup has some problem, so good to take Sven's
suggestion to install the packaged VM:
