[Geany-Users] Java in Geany - Fully Qualified Classname

 Ah ha, the penny has dropped now, thank you. 

For other folks who might be interested this is what I've used:

Command field:  java com.example.ProjectA
Working directory: /home/me/Documents/Java/Classes
Base path: /home/me/Documents/Java/Classes

I'm not quite sure of the inner workings though it seems ok with the Working Directory and Base Path being the same.
