    Re: Minecraft Installer

    Having a similar problem. The script seems to run just fine. But there is no icon created on the desktop and running from Terminal gives: Unable to access jarfile /home/rob/.minecraft/minecraft.jar
    I checked permissions and even ran sudo minecraft. But still no go.

    Running on oneiric with unity desktop.

    Any ideas?

    /edit: when I look at permissions after installation, permissions are set for root and not for the user that installed the program. How can root have permission when installed with user credentials?

    Exclamation Re: Minecraft Installer

    Hi,
    I've installed this successfully on a fresh install of 11.04 natty 32 bit on a Dell Dimension 5100 with a dual core hyper-threaded 3.1GHZ Intel Pentium 4 processor, 2GB 400mhz DDR2 RAM, and a 256MB ATI RADEON X300SE, so I know my PC is capable of running Minecraft, as I can run a standard FPS with all settings on max and get 40FPS easily.

    Minecraft DOES RUN FINE, bit is RIDICULOUSLY laggy though, does anybody know anything I can do to speed it up a bit (in terms of software) please?

    I also get this message when typing minecraft into terminal. Minecraft runs fine, but there still appears to be some sort of error...
    Code:

    Re: Minecraft Installer

    When you press F11 and go into full screen, press escape twice and you will be able to.

    Is it possible to play the game offline using the infrastructure set up by this script?

    Re: Minecraft Installer

    As of Ubuntu 11.10 sun-java is not in the repositories.
    Sun was bought out by Oracle. Oracle has a shaky relationship with the open source community.
    So Java 7 is Oracle Java and is not in are repositories.
    The good news is before Oracle bought out Sun, Sun made Java open source as in OpenJDK.
    Ubuntu uses OpenJDK. The bad news is Minecraft runs best using sun-java. The bash script you are using was made for earlier versions of Ubuntu that had sun-java in there repositories.

    Ubuntu recommends
    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Java

    The bash script your using calls for

    $ sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jre sun-java6-plugin
    $ sudo update-java-alternatives -s java-6-sun

    I think it can be found here.

    Many of us use this ppa
    http://superuser.com/questions/35398...u-11-10-oneric

    The problem is who is ferramroberto. Getting software and updates from who know where poses a security risk.

    I use his repositorie but after installing Mincraft I goto Ubuntu software source > Other Software and I disable ferramroberto ppa's to some what minimize the risk.
