hi when I want to open a launcher which I have made for opening Your freedom client, a blank Terminal will open. So I was wondering how to create a launcher without running a terminal and only run the desired program.

here is the launcher's command: java -jar "/home/.../freedom.jar"

By "launcher" you mean a .desktop file? There are lots of examples of .desktop files in /usr/share/applications. Just add Terminal=false line and it should not spawn a terminal window.

If your launcher is a shell script and you double click it, in Gnome you are given the choice to just launch it, or launch it in a terminal window.
