How to create a launcher for a NFC tag writting app?

 
Hello Everybody!

I want to write some NFC tags and learned of a program called TagXplorer that I can use to do this. I now have everything working but want to create a launcher to make things easier. Here is what I have done.

I have a file called ‘TagXplorer-v1.2.jar” that I downloaded from here:

https://www.nxp.com/products/rfid-nf…ool:TAGXPLORER

I then went to:

https://community.nxp.com/t5/NFC/Tag…art/m-p/918596

and learned that if I want to launch the file ‘TagXplorer-v1.2.jar” I must then go to:

https://gluonhq.com/products/javafx/

and download and extract the file “JavaFX Linux SDK”

So I did this all this.

On my desktop there is now a folder called ‘javafx-sdk-11.0.2’ and in this folder is the ‘lib’ folder. In addition to this the ‘TagXplorer-v1.2.jar” file also resides on my desktop.

If I want to run TagXplorer I open terminal and issue the following:

cd Desktop

java –module-path /home/suomalainen/Desktop/javafx-sdk-11.0.2/lib/ –add-modules javafx.controls,javafx.fxml -jar TagXplorer-v1.2.jar

TagXplorer opens and I’m a happy camper!

The thing is I’d rather have a folder tucked away in my home directory for these files and a launcher in my top panel which I can double click to open TagXplorer.

Is this or some other better way possible so that I don’t need to keep these folders on my Desktop?

What can I do?

Thank you!

Suomalainen
