    Terminal Commands to executable (Fedora)

    Hey guys, sorry if this is in the wrong thread. I'm really new to this and am still figuring things out. Anyways, I have two lines of commands that I use in the terminal to launch minecraft. They are

    cd Downloads
    java -jar minecraft.jar

    I would like to turn this into some sort of executable shell program that I could click on and minecraft could launch automatically. I tried to do this myself with some googling and such, but to no avail. I was wondering If someone could help me by posting something I can use with instructions on how to use it. Any help is appreciated. I'm really new to Linux so I don't know a lot about the coding.

    Then right click on the file and tick the box marked "Executable".

    Hello and Welcome!

    Depending on the Desktop Environment that you are using, you should be able to create a shortcut. In the command selection, try:
    ~/Downloads/java -jar minecraft.jar
