    Default Can't find Java!

    I'm using Opensuse 12.2 with KDE. I have Java installed -
    java-1_7_0-openjdk but just can't find it in the menu.

    I want to use it with Hamsphere, but even though I can see in Yast that it's installed, I can't find the darned application. Where on earth is it?

    (No, I don't want to start it from a terminal)

    I don't use OpenJDK because I use Intellij Idea and It requires Oracle's java so it can run, but I don't believe that Java is added to menu. But you can create your own .desktop entry and add it to ~/.local/share/applications and It will be show in the menu, for instance image that you have a application that is a 'some-app.jar' you have just grabbed from internet you could create a desktop entry and change :
    Code:
    Exec=java -jar /path/to/my/some-app.jar
    and the menu will be reload and that application will show up int the menu.

    I hope helped somehow.

    You do not want to use the terminal but you are going to use Ham Radio???? oxymoron

    BTW, if you hit Alt-F2 and then type "java -jar /path/Hampster.jar
    That may work

    Is it a .jar file? If you want to be able to click and run a jar file do :

    1. right click any .jar file and click properties
    2. Click on "File Type Options" button
    3. Click "Add" in "Application Preference Order" (NOT IN THE Filename Patterns)
    4. In the new dialog box's top textbox, type "java -jar" without quotes and click OK.
    5. You should see "Java" on the top in Application Preference Order now. Hit OK.

    Profit!

    You are completely off base and do not understand what I have written, I have not called anyone names. Why you do not PM me to find out first what is going on?
