[CentOS] Starting a java applet from the desktop

CentOS-5.4 i86_64

I have a calculator applet on my desktop (superbcalc.jar).  When I
double click on it I get no response.  If I right click and select
open with java I get no response.  If I open a terminal window and
cd to Desktop and type java -jar superbcalc.jar then the applet
opens.

Does anyone have any idea why I am seeing this behaviour?  There are
no messages in the syslog file relating to this.
