I had a quick peek into your script and it doesn't look like it was
based on any of SBo templates[0].  I suggest to follow them as closely
as possible.  To handle different program and source file names, you
could use SRC_NAME (or something similar) for the latter one.  The
former should be PRGNAM as written in templates.

Documentation in Slackware should be placed in /usr/doc, not
/usr/share/doc.  Icon file should be placed in /usr/share/pixmaps, that
way you won't have to provide a full path for it in .desktop file.

And there are some issues with .desktop file:

  $ desktop-file-validate jmol.desktop
  jmol.desktop: warning: key "Encoding" in group "Desktop Entry" is deprecated
  jmol.desktop: error: value "Application;Education" for string list key
  "Categories" in group "Desktop Entry" does not have a semicolon (';')
  as trailing character

I haven't tried to run it, but overall it looks okay, just needs to be
written more closely to SBo guidelines.
