i have a java program and to run it, i have to go into terminal and type
cd <where the file is>
java -jar <filename>.jar
this works fine, but is there a way to make a shortcut/small program to do this for me when i double click?
You appear to be using Ubuntu. If that is correct then you can move the mouse pointer to an empty area on the desktop and click the right mouse button. A menu will appear. Click on "Create Launcher...". A window will appear with a form to fill in. When you have finished entering the appropriate information then click on the "OK" button in the lower right of the window. When you do this an icon will appear on your desktop.
