How to change player name in minecraft multiplayer in offline mode in Linux?

I installed some mods for Minecraft recently, and because of this I can only run the game using the EXE. But the problem with that is I can no longer use the old .bat trick and create a script to change my name. How can I change my name using the command-line of the Minecraft.exe?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Well, if the other question answered your question it's a dupe almost by definition :) – badp Jul 3 '11 at 20:32

I want to confirm that this is not possible via the command-line, but there are some suggestion in this post that can help you, maybe?

Edit: Just noticed bckbck posted the link as a comment, but I'll leave this in my answer anyway.

Thanks! I managed to find a launcher that will allow me to change my name, and launch the .exe :) – Alan Jun 25 '11 at 17:34
I don't see a way to accept the answer like on other SE sites. I'll inform a moderator so accept this. – Alan Jun 25 '11 at 17:35
@Alan, the problem was that you had another account (unregistered) which you used to ask the question. I merged them so now you should be able to accept the answer. – juan Jun 26 '11 at 15:43
Thanks Juan! That was really weird, I've never had that happen before. – Alan Jun 26 '11 at 21:07
