So my fellow Linux enthusiasts I am having a problem with Minecraft on my 64 bit installation of Linux Light. My notebook is a HP Pavilion 6700 (got it to work!) with an AMD processor and an NVIDA GPU, but im not sure what one of those though. If anyone can help, feel free to post or email me. :) thanks!

  • Linux Lite: 4.6 64bit

  • CPU: Intel Pentium [email protected] (2cores) on an Asus X71Q

  • MEMORY: 4Gb

  • VIDEO CARD: Intel GM45 Express Chipset

  • Kernel: 4.x
I am unable to open & run  Minecraft.jar in LL2.4
It's downloaded, but doesn't seem to respond when made executable - not wanting to run with  OpenJDKJava 7 Policy Tool
 
Any help much appreciated as am trying to set up for my young son.
Many thanks
Mike

PS: this response was marked GREEN in error - the administrator was informed but, at the time, was unable to remove the green highlighting. I have posted a solution (taken from the Ubuntu handbook), which worked for me, which is shown at the end or towards the end of this thread.

I had a similar problem, to get MC to work I had to install the ppa for Oracle Java 8

Here are the commands you will need to enter into a terminal (ctrl+alt+t)

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:webupd8team/java
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install oracle-java8-installer

You should be prompted a few times, accept these prompts and agree to Oracle's Java License Agreement

Once you have followed these steps you should be able to right click on minecraft.jar, click on "open with" and select Oracle Java 8 Runtime.

Have fun gaming! -morganizach

Morganizach, many thanks - this worked for opening minecraft.jar. 

However, I need now to create a 'minecraft launcher' for the desktop, so my son can click on this whenever he wants to play Minecraft - can you show me how to do this? 

Regards
Mike

  • CPU: Intel i5-4210M Dual Core 2,60 GHz

  • MEMORY: 4Gb

  • VIDEO CARD: Intel HD 4600

  • Kernel: 5.x
Search for "Main Menu" in the Whisker Menu and create a new launcher in the Games category.

Give it a Icon and name of your liking and the command should go kinda like this:

Code: [Select]
java -jar /directory/path/.Minecraft.jar
change the path according to where your Minecraft.jar is located.

Not all of the above worked for me (got a bit lost at UltraCookie's code) but I did find something prescriptive enough, for
a relative newbie, like myself, to use. In the end I used this to set up Minecraft - it seemed much simpler.

First, though, you need to have set up a Mojang account, to allow you to play Minecraft - go to the Minecraft website & register.
You will then need Java 7 for the setting-up to work, though I used Java 8, using morganizach's method (above) to download
& install this.

When you've covered the above two points, type the following into the terminal...
Code: [Select]
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:minecraft-installer-peeps/minecraft-installer

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install minecraft-installer


The above was taken from http://ubuntuhandbook.org/index.php/2014/04/install-minecraft-in-ubuntu-14-04/

This will install the Minecraft Launcher into the Games section of the Menu.
Click on the Launcher. 
Then Login with your Mojang account details.
Click on the Play button at the bottom of the Launcher.
The latest version of the Minecraft software will then start downloading.
When done reboot, play & enjoy...
 
Cheers
Mike
