    Question Minecraft launcher in application menu not working.

    In the past I've been able to add a Minecraft launcher in the application menu using the command:
    Code:
    java -jar ~/.minecraft/minecraft.jar
    Witch works perfectly in the terminal but now for some reason in 12.10 this no longer works in the application menu. Why would it work in the terminal but not in the application menu?

    My guess would be that it's trying to run Minecraft from the folder the launcher is at, migh be wrong though. try change the small script to

    Code:
    cd ~/.minecraft
    java -jar minecraft.jar
    Feel free to try my installer as well. It'll add Minecraft to your menu, and you can generate more launchers wherever you like too.
    This is my signature
