Okay, I have opened nautilus and edited preferences to ask when I double click an .sh script to run in Terminal. Well, I don't want to use a .desktop file; I want to just simply double click on the .sh file and it run the jar file. This is what I have in my sh script


alias proj="cd /home/colby/Desktop/Cauldon\ Server/" 
java -jar cauldron-1.7.10-1.1207.01.198-server.jar -o true

This is the error which I get in Terminal

There was an error creating the child process for this terminal
Failed to execute child process "/home/colby/Desktop/Cauldon Server/start_server.sh" (No such file or directory)"

What is wrong?


From what I see there is an error in the path name either in the desktop file or in the script itself.

Try editing it. Insted of Cauldon Server use Cauldon_Server. Directory name shouldn't include space.

  • It works in Terminal but not on double click, you think this could still be an issue? – Colby McHenry Apr 24 '15 at 1:02
  • Yeah I did what you said and it still did not fix the issue, thank you though. – Colby McHenry Apr 24 '15 at 1:02
