executable jar in java (cannot double click)
i have successfully made an executable jar in the command line and it works perfectly: java -jar <filename>.jar
the program executes well, but the problem is i always have to open the terminal just to run a jar file.
i cannot double click it on the desktop since it seems to be a compressed file. i changed the file association in gnome, but its still the same, the jar file is understood to be a compressed file.
what seems to be problem here?
