It's probably a simple fix, but since moving to 12.04, I can't work out simple shortcuts to home folders from media/disk, that I can navigate to easily from the Terminal. I want to run NW-E00X_MP3_File_Manager-0.17a.jar which is an open source program to copy and manage music on an old Sony USB mp3 player.It needs to be an executable to run, or run from Terminal using SUDO I guess, but can't either select executable through the GUI or navigate to media through Terminal, nor set up a shortcut to media within the home or desktop folders.

Should I run Nautilus with super user/root privileges and set-up a link or can i make the file executable through this route?

Any thoughts?
