holsteinfrom a terminal01:03
freakingmartinI don't want to do it from terminal01:03
holsteinfreakingmartin: ok01:06
holsteinfreakingmartin: i only know how to do it from the terminal.. you can create a launcher for it to start i you lke01:06
holsteinfreakingmartin: i'll let you wait on another volunteer.. cheers01:06
holsteinfreakingmartin: here is *exactly* your query, and *exactly* my answer01:07
freakingmartinlol that page only answered how to install java, which i already have01:08
holsteinfreakingmartin: java -jar FILE.jar ,friend01:08
holsteinas i suggested01:09
freakingmartini got it...01:09
holsteinfreakingmartin: post 3 is where it is suggested, after the "install java" suggestion. and post 4 is the "thanks" answer01:09
holstein!volunteers | freakingmartin01:09
ubottufreakingmartin: The people here are volunteers, your attitude should reflect that. Answers are not always available. See http://wiki.ubuntu.com/IRC/Guidelines01:09
holsteinthough, i have an answer01:09
freakingmartinYou're the expert.01:10
holsteini never said that01:10
freakingmartinI never said you did.01:10
holsteinfreakingmartin: cool.. enjoy, friend!01:10
freakingmartinhow do i make a desktop configuration file open minecraft.jar?01:34
SonikkuAmericaSet the shortcut to execute it using Java (you DO have OpenJDK or Oracle Java, right?)01:35
SonikkuAmericaAs in set the command [ java -jar /path/to/jar/file.jar ]01:36
SonikkuAmericaOther than that, set it up like an ordinary .desktop file.01:37
freakingmartinI have OpenJDK but when I try to choose an application to run my short cut using OpenJDK, OpenJDK 7 is not listen in installed application. Maybe i can use a custom command line?01:37
SonikkuAmericafreakingmartin: One second...01:38
SonikkuAmericafreakingmartin: OK, given that OpenJDK is set as your JRE (through either update-alternatives in a terminal, or through a MIME type editor) OpenJDK should interpret the [ java -jar ] command as the execution of a JAR file.01:40
freakingmartinwhat is my best option01:40
SonikkuAmericaYou know how to create a .desktop file, right?01:41
SonikkuAmerica(If not, I can show you)01:41
freakingmartinI dont think so01:41
SonikkuAmericaStep 1: Open up a text editor (Leafpad in Lubuntu, I think)01:41
freakingmartinNext step?01:42
SonikkuAmericaStep 2: Gimme a second... :)01:42
freakingmartinlol okay :)01:43
SonikkuAmericaStep 2B: http://paste.ubuntu.com/5882747/ <<< Copy the template I wrote up into your file01:44
SonikkuAmericaStep 3: Set your Name and GenericName to Minecraft (or whatever)01:45
SonikkuAmerica(by typing it after the = sign)01:45
freakingmartindo i put a space after the = sign?01:46
SonikkuAmericaStep 4: Set your Exec to "java -jar /path/to/your/jar/file.jar" (without the quotes, substituting in for the actual path to the .jar file)01:47
SonikkuAmericaStep 5 (optional): Set a comment for your .desktop file (it will appear in a tool tip on mouse over)01:49
SonikkuAmericaIf you don't wish to add a comment, delete the line.01:49
freakingmartini added a comment01:49
SonikkuAmericaStep 6: We don't need to specify a filetype, so delete the "Type=" line.01:50
SonikkuAmericaStep 7 (optional): Set Terminal to true if you want to see debugging output for running the desktop command. Otherwise, leave it false.01:51
SonikkuAmericaStep 8: Set the path of the icon you want displayed on the appropriate line, unless you're fine with seeing the generic "file" icon.01:53
freakingmartini set a png01:54
SonikkuAmericaA portable net graphic should be fine :)01:55
SonikkuAmericaStep 9: Set StartupNotify to true if you want to see a notification that your program started; if not, delete that line or set it to flase.01:55
SonikkuAmerica*false even01:55
freakingmartinline deleted01:56
SonikkuAmericaNow save your file in ~/Desktop/ as <whatever>.desktop01:56
freakingmartini see my shortcut01:57
SonikkuAmericaNow close the Leafpad window and double-click your now shortcut.01:58
freakingmartinnothing happen01:58
freakingmartinteamviewer maybe?01:59
SonikkuAmericaNothing happened? Hmm... Try executing your .jar in a terminal: [ java -jar /path/to/your/jar/file.jar ] and pastebin whatever errors it comes up with.01:59
ubottupastebinit is the command-line equivalent of !pastebin - Command output, or other text can be redirected to pastebinit, which then reports an URL containing the output - To use pastebinit, install the « pastebinit » package from a package manager - Simple usage: command | pastebinit -b http://paste.ubuntu.com02:00
freakingmartinbash: [: -jar: binary operator expected02:01
SonikkuAmericaYou may wish to check this article out too: http://www.webupd8.org/2013/04/easily-install-minecraft-in-ubuntu-via.html02:02
SonikkuAmericaHowever, I dunno whether or not it will re-download the whole thing - you do run that risk.02:03
freakingmartinI can run minecraft jar by itself but i cant get it to open with a shortcut02:03
SonikkuAmericaHow do you run the jar by itself usually?02:04
freakingmartinif i run it through terminal [ java -jar /home/martin/KeiNettLauncher.jar ] it will work... if i open jar with OpenJDK it will work02:05
freakingmartinI can't get my shortcut to run the jar02:06
SonikkuAmericafreakingmartin: Try re-opening the .desktop file and replacing "java" with "/usr/bin/java"02:06
freakingmartinso it should look like this right?  Exec=/usr/bin/java -jar /home/martin/KeiNettLauncher.jar02:08
SonikkuAmericaNow give it another shot02:08
freakingmartinstill doesnt work. when i double click nothing happens, when i right click and open nothing happens also02:09
SonikkuAmericaHmm... the other thing I can think of is running [ chmod +x ~/Desktop/<desktopfile>.desktop ] in a terminal and trying again.02:10
SonikkuAmerica(That would give it executable permissions)02:10
freakingmartini run it like this chmod +x ~/Desktop/<Minecraft>.desktop02:12
freakingmartinthis is what it gave me           bash: Minecraft: No such file or directory02:12
SonikkuAmericafreakingmartin: Leave out the < > (unless they're actually in the filename) :)02:13
freakingmartinlol ok02:13
freakingmartini got this : chmod: cannot access ‘/home/martin/Desktop/Minecraft.desktop’: No such file or directory02:14
SonikkuAmericafreakingmartin: You *did* put it in your Desktop folder, right?02:15
SonikkuAmericaAnd it's called Minecraft.desktop (capital M and all, right)?02:16
SonikkuAmericaRun [ ls ~/Desktop/ ]02:16
SonikkuAmerica(Anything in [ ] means it goes in terminal)02:17
freakingmartinHold up let me check if it has .desktop02:17
freakingmartinnow let me run [ ls ~/Desktop/ ]02:18
freakingmartinthis is what i got "KeiNett Launcher               Minecraft 1.6.1 Launcher (Mac OS X & Linux).zip02:19
freakingmartinMinecraft 1.6.1  Launcher.jar  MInecraft.desktop02:19
SonikkuAmericaSo it's there, but the computer is having nothing to do with it.02:22
holsteinwhy not launch it from the terminal? thats what you downloaded02:22
freakingmartinI like to have a shortcut with a stylish icon on my desktop (like windows)02:23
SonikkuAmericafreakingmartin: Just for a frame of reference, pastebin the content of the .desktop file we created02:24
freakingmartinsyntax Plain text?02:25
SonikkuAmericaWe don't have any HTML content we need to parse, I don't think :)02:26
holsteinyou could use a more "windows-like" desktop environment.. that allows for making launchers more simply02:26
freakingmartindesktop environment02:27
freakingmartini corrected every thing and now when i run "chmod +x ~/Desktop/<desktopfile>.desktop" nothing happens nether02:28
SonikkuAmericaholstein: I thought LXDE *was* a more "Windows-like DE"02:29
holsteinnothing in LXDE promises, "make whatever launchers you want with the click of a button"02:29
SonikkuAmericaholstein: I beg to differ, isn't there a "Create Launcher" option in the LXDE right-click menu?02:30
freakingmartini see02:30
holsteinSonikkuAmerica: thats what freakingmartin wants02:30
holsteina launcher to click on for the application to start02:31
holsteinwith a pretty icon02:31
holsteinjust like in windows02:31
SonikkuAmericaholstein: There *is* alacarte, but I dunno what it depends on.02:31
holsteinthats what i thought.. right click, create a launcher02:32
holsteinbut, i suggested that last time freakingmartin was here02:32
SonikkuAmericaOne still has to point it to the right place and all02:32
holsteinyou can say "run in terminal02:32
holsteinand run the same command02:32
freakingmartini can say that02:33
holsteini think its a checkbox02:33
holsteinyou use java -jar filename.jar and "run in terminal"02:34
freakingmartink did that02:36
holsteinfreakingmartin: enjoy!02:36
freakingmartinnever said it worked02:36
holsteinfreakingmartin: ok.. just share any relevant information02:37
freakingmartinOk after all this chatting, my body is tired.02:37
freakingmartinI shall sleep Zzzz02:37
holsteinfreakingmartin: if you use the *exact* command that works in the terminal, and launch it in the terminal from the shortcut, it should work02:38
holsteinotherwise, share errors02:38
holsteinor, we'll see you when you wake02:38
freakingmartinhold up whats the command for terminal02:38
holsteinfreakingmartin: the one that you used, that works02:38
freakingmartini forgot what it waws02:38
holsteinjava -jar filename.jar ...replacing filename with the one you have02:38
holstein /path/to/application.jar02:39
holsteinjava -jar /home/freakingmartin/minecraft.jar or whatever02:39
freakingmartink do i check Execute in terminal emulatr02:40
holsteinfreakingmartin: thats what i would do, then it will run the *exact* command that you just ran, and tested, in the terminal.. by running it, again, in a terminal.. which just worked02:41
freakingmartinit works in terminal, but it doesnt work when i double click on the shortcut02:42
holsteinfreakingmartin: sure.. just share how it "doesnt work"02:42
holsteinand, double check the command you gave the shortcut02:42
freakingmartini triple checked02:42
holsteinfreakingmartin: ok02:42
holsteinfreakingmartin: so, whats the error?02:42
freakingmartinthere is no error it just does not run anything02:43
holsteinfreakingmartin: lol?02:43
freakingmartini hate shortcuts02:43
holsteinfreakingmartin: whast funny?02:43
holsteinfreakingmartin: i dont use them02:43
holsteinfreakingmartin: paste the command here02:44
freakingmartinjava -jar /home/martin/KeiNettLauncher.jar02:44
holsteinfreakingmartin: make a new shortcut02:44
holsteinif that doesnt work, then i have no idea02:44
freakingmartinI have an idea.. get a new computer02:45
holsteinor, just lanuch from the terminal02:45
freakingmartini think i'm done with shortcuts02:45
holsteinthats what you downloaded02:45
holsteinan application to launch from the terminal02:45
SonikkuAmericafreakingmartin: One of the reasons why I only test Lubuntu and don't use it full-time :)02:46
holsteinLXDE is minimal02:46
freakingmartinBut lubuntu is sooo fast and it runs great02:46
freakingmartinon my computer02:46
holsteinits not really made for adding a lot to it like that.. though, i have added those shortcuts to XFCE no problem02:46
holsteinfreakingmartin: i personally dont see how this negates the experience you are having02:47
holsteinits still fast02:47
freakingmartinmay you teamviewer and remotely help me please02:47
holsteinwho is you?02:47
holsteinthis is not that kind of support02:47
freakingmartinany one that can help  me02:47
holsteini would ask the maintainer of that pacakage how you are supposed to launch it02:48
freakingmartini thought you were my friend :( lol jk02:48
annehello, can someone help me with watchdog? I set the ping at, but watchdog reboot my sys at startup. I use a wifi key and It needs more than a minute to log in to the net03:05
SonikkuAmericaanne: How are you able to connect to the Internet if you're stuck in a bootloop?03:15
annenow? another pc :) on lubuntu? rewriting the distro from the beginning03:17
SonikkuAmericaanne: I would've said pastebin your [ dmesg ] output, but if you're reinstalling that's out the windows.03:25
SonikkuAmerica*only 1 window03:25
annealso I cant pastebin nothing, the sistem keep rebooting at startup... no time to do anything.03:29
anneit's something like this03:29
anneI tried adding watchdog last week, but something is broken in watchdog (On the PI only) where ping doesn't work, so you end up with a constant reboot because watchdog starts up at boot time. If you want to experiment with watchdog first edit  Code: Select all     sudo nano /etc/default/watchdog  and tell watchdog not to start at boot. I haven't tried watchdog with the latest firmware, so not sure if the issue has been fixed, but doubt 03:30
SonikkuAmericaanne: You may wish to check the bash script written out the comment by sdjf03:46
SonikkuAmericaGood evening, jono, my good sir.04:04

James0rjust installed Lubuntu 13.04 and liking it. i'm a new linux user and i found it pretty easy to use so far. it's simple but fast and that's what i was going for.06:08
James0rone thing i noticed though is that during the installation process i thought it mentioned that XChat was pre-installed but i couldn't find it once i got it going06:09
James0rjust as easy to download via apt-get but just something i noticed06:10
Unit193Nope, xchat isn't pre-installed with the system.06:11
