Environment: CentOS 5.10 on 32 Bit.


cd /dump
sudo /opt/java/jre1.7.0_60/bin/java -jar mytest.jar

mytest.jar will pop a GUI app in the desktop, username is in sudoers with NOPASSWD.

Created a launcher in desktop, on double click it doesn't launch the GUI.

If I run test.sh in terminal, it works without issue.


You need to R click on your script, go to Permissions and then mark the checkbox "Allow executing file as a program".
