In try to set the absolute path for emacsclient.

/usr/local/bin/emacsclient  or whatever fits your environment. We
don't even know on what OS you are. `emacs-client` is unknown to me
and script extension .so is uncommon too.

I'm still not convinced your script is starting the right emacsclient,
as your shell/shortcut does.
