You have few issues with your scripts:
1. Don't use readlink - you don't need to dereference symlinks yourself
2. $@ expands into list of arguments, not one argument. So you do need to use $1 instead. Or merge all of them (see below)
3. Make sure you quote filename passed to your scripts eg:

wine-extracticon "file name with spaces"

4. Use variables

A simple workaround for 2 & 3 is:


for i in $@; do FILE="$FILE $i"; done
