Hi John,

Try giving the full path the the executable 'java', it will probably be something like '/bin/java' - you can find out by running 
'which java'

Hope this helps,

Subject: [ubuntu-uk] Menu item

Hi All,

I have a main menu item which is supposed to launch a java based application. It 
is in the format:

java -jar /location/of/java/app.jar

When I try to launch the application from the menu nothing happens but when I 
copy the same command into a terminal window, it launches perfectly. Any ideas
