According to this (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1945777&highlight=minecraft) thread, you need to install Sun/Oracle java, instead of the open version.

sudo apt-get install openjdk-7-jre

Worked for me. One PC gets a black screen when logging into Minecraft, though.

If that doesn't exist...

1- Open Ubuntu Software Centre
2- Edit the software sources (on one of the menubar options- forget where)
3- Make sure Universe and Multiverse repos are check'd.

Close USC, and reload the repos and try again:

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install openjdk-7-jre

Good luck.

Edit: I also have the issue with it not showing up in the list when clicking. My temporary solution is to just open a terminal, cd to the directory where minecraft.jar is located, and run this command:


java -jar minecraft.jar
