  custom shortcut key ignores commands

Status in unity-control-center package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. I have tried to run this python script from github:


  by defining a custom shortcut key and placing the command:
   python ~/my_pythons_scripts/append_clipboard.py 

  in the command box. Nothing happens when I use the designated shortcut

  The same happens when I try to run a bash script by custom shortcut

  Both the python script and my own bash script run from terminal

  In fact none of the shell commands placed inside the command box of
  custom shortcut keys is executed

  Oddly enough there is no problem launching installed programs, such as
  skype or firefox.

  In other word if your command is, say, firefox then you are ok. But
  not when you want to run your own scripts.

  Initially I assumed I was not binding the keys properly and posted this 
question in Askubuntu:

  unsurprisingly I have had no solutions offered.
