Since this is application is VERY CRUCIAL in my work, so I ease up my days by writing my own desktop shortcut file. So I have option whether to run through terminals or simply desktop.
Here goes. I am not aware if anybody else actually created this, since I cannot file any.
With you favorite editor, write an empty file, let say jabref.desktop .. locate it in your favorite place.
Exec=java -jar /home/najmi/JabRef-2.7.jar

I have created the icons, just simply download them here
