In Windows, when I double-clicked on a JAR file it would run the encapsulated Java program. In Ubuntu, all I get is a list of files stored in the JAR file. Is there a way to configure Ubuntu to run the program instead?
- Right click on any .jar file
- Select properties
- Navigate to the open with tab in the properties window
- Check off Sun java 1.x.x Runtime then hit OK
of course, your version may vary, so replace 1.x.x with your version of the runtime.
