Install CairoDock; it includes +launcher function which used to included as a right click on the desktop but now we have a clean desktop. Cairo will provide a command line input box for /path/to/minecraft.jar as well as an icon select function. Once set up, just click on the icon in CairoDock and if the program runs in a terminal it will run from CairoDock. Lock the dock when you are happy with it or funny things may happen.

You may be able to use Gnome Advanced Settings to restore the built in launcher for the desktop but I get along well with Cairo.
