I've no clue what you mean by that nor what's the issue, as it works just fine with my own GNOME/Nautilus combo.

Are you on Manjaro or the like?

Of course. But it seems be more related with freedesktop, I think.

Nautilus 3.24.1-1 on GNOME?

What's your file manager and desktop environment?

Dolphin, Nautilus, PCManFM and Thunar all work with "Exec=/usr/lib/jvm/java-8-jre/jre/bin/java -jar".

I've solved by adding %f at the end of Exec= line.

"Exec=/usr/lib/jvm/java-8-jre/jre/bin/java -jar %f"

You should consider to add that in the .desktop file of that package :D

I know, I'm telling you, that's the change I've always done, which doesn't affect your issue anyway, as it's got something to do with your file manager/desktop environment.

I think is not related with the last modifications, It has been happening from the fresh install

Det commented on 2017-04-30 17:41

From the jre-8u131-linux-x64.tar.gz directly. The only thing I change in that .desktop is the Exec= line.

wyre commented on 2017-04-30 17:40

what do you mean with "it's from the .tar.gz itself and only edited for the Exec=" ?

I'm using Gnome.
