When I downloaded Cracked Minecraft onto my Linux Lubuntu 15.04, I wasn't able to right click it and open with "OpenJDK 7 Runtime Environment. I right clicked and did Properties and then Permissions then allowed Execute file to Anyone. Still can't. How can I do it? Please help ASAP!


You can make a .desktop file for Java:

  1. Create a file called java.desktop
  2. Open java.desktop in a text editor
  3. Add this in your java.desktop file:
[Desktop Entry]
Exec=java -jar %f
  1. Install that java.desktop file with the command sudo desktop-file-install java.desktop Now you can right-click on the .jar file and choose to open it with Java.
