n00b here. Right first of all thank you to the Ubuntu community for making this possible. Just switched from windzzzzzz and can't believe it took me so long to ditch the lame OS. I like Ubuntu, I like the open source philosophy, I like the forums, I like the tongue-in-cheeckness of it all as opposed to the tedious smuttering of corporate sobriety of Macs and Windzz. So, well done and thanks again for making this possible.
Now my question:
I am trying to make a menu shortcut to run a program. The program is javaFIBS and it needs java to run. For the program to run correctly I have to type
java -jar JavaFIBS-1.0.11_JDK13.jar
but the program only runs correctly if I open terminal within the javafibs directory (or go there before I run java).
So what I am trying to do is have my Application in terminal to run two commands:
1. cd /home/pietro/JavaFIBS2001/
2. java -jar JavaFIBS-1.0.11_JDK13.jar
java -jar /home/pietro/JavaFIBS2001/JavaFIBS-1.0.11_JDK13.jar
but it does not seem to work as javaFIBS does not know where to look for its files and lots of buttons do not get loaded up. As in, the program run, but not correctly.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
oh.. I was also wondering if there is an appropriate directory where to store software. In windzzz used to be Program Files, in Ubuntu I am using /home/pietro but I am not sure this is the appropriate one. Any suggestion?
Thank you for your help
