One slight oddity is that there is a strange looking (to me) symbolic link already in /home/pi/squeak that probably means the sources file should go at the end of it; I’ve never seen a symbolic link names ‘*.sources’ or anything like that before.

I tried starting squeak from the ‘start’ menu (oh, how unpleasantly like Windows that is) and it simply started up my one image, so I imagine the script only offers choices if you have several findable image files.
