    Minecraft on Ubuntu 12.04

    Sorry http://modifyubuntu.com/#minecraft is out of date due to lwjgl-2.8.4. Sorry this is a bit long. I just tried this and its all working and up to date.

    To open a terminal press ctrl+alt+t all at the same time. Then cut and paste the following commands into the terminal window one line at a time minus the $.

    #make sure you have Openjdk-7 and all the Openjdk-7 extensions.

    $ sudo apt-get update

    $ sudo apt-get upgrade

    $ sudo apt-get install ca-certificates-java icedtea-7-jre-cacao icedtea-7-jre-jamvm java-common libatk-wrapper-java libatk-wrapper-java-jni libbonobo2-0 libbonobo2-common libgnome2-0 libgnomevfs2-0 libgnomevfs2-common openjdk-7-jre openjdk-7-jre-headless openjdk-7-jre-lib ttf-dejavu-extra tzdata-java

    #Look and make sure your using openjdk-7.

    $ sudo update-alternatives --config java

    Sometimes Ubuntu’s 3D desktop effects has issues with Minecraft. You could try logging out of your Desktop, select Unity 2D then log back in.

    Download minecraft.jar from here.
    http://www.minecraft.net/download

    Download the Lightweight Java Game Library or lwjgl from here
    http://sourceforge.net/projects/java...d?source=files

    If you haven’t yet run Minecraft then do so and log in it will automatically to create the folder .minecraft in your home folder. Note. You will get a black screen. Here's how.

    ------------------------------------------------

    $ cd ~/Downloads

    $ sudo chmod a+x minecraft.jar

    $ java -Xmx256M -Xms256M -cp minecraft.jar net.minecraft.LauncherFrame
    -------------------------------------------------
    Close Minecraft

    In Ubuntu 12.04 you have to update lwjgl by hand due to Java 7 or Openjdk-7. You can go here or read down and use the command line.

    Lightweight Java Game Library download

    http://www.minecraftwiki.net/wiki/Tu...s/Update_LWJGL


    The command line.

    Then open a terminal ctrl+alt+t cut and paste the following commands into the terminal window one line at a time minus the $.
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    #update LWJGL
    # Note. lwjgl-2.8.4.zip will change over time as updates become available. so you will have to change the names as needed.
    # 4-29-2012 the Minecraft version is 1.2.5. When version 1.2.6 comes out its likely you will have to update lwjgl by hand again. Word is, when Minecraft hits version 2.0 they will switch to Java 7 and you will not need to update lwjgl by hand any more.

    # update lwjgl by replacing these 9 files

    $ cd ~/Downloads

    $ unzip lwjgl-2.8.4.zip

    # type A for all

    $ sudo cp -f ~/Downloads/lwjgl-2.8.4/jar/jinput.jar ~/.minecraft/bin/jinput.jar
    $ sudo cp -f ~/Downloads/lwjgl-2.8.4/jar/lwjgl_util.jar ~/.minecraft/bin/lwjgl_util.jar
    $ sudo cp -f ~/Downloads/lwjgl-2.8.4/jar/lwjgl.jar ~/.minecraft/bin/lwjgl.jar


    $ sudo cp -f ~/Downloads/lwjgl-2.8.4/native/linux/libjinput-linux.so ~/.minecraft/bin/natives/libjinput-linux.so
    $ sudo cp -f ~/Downloads/lwjgl-2.8.4/native/linux/libjinput-linux64.so ~/.minecraft/bin/natives/libjinput-linux64.so
    $ sudo cp -f ~/Downloads/lwjgl-2.8.4/native/linux/liblwjgl.so ~/.minecraft/bin/natives/liblwjgl.so
    $ sudo cp -f ~/Downloads/lwjgl-2.8.4/native/linux/liblwjgl64.so ~/.minecraft/bin/natives/liblwjgl64.so
    $ sudo cp -f ~/Downloads/lwjgl-2.8.4/native/linux/libopenal.so ~/.minecraft/bin/natives/libopenal.so
    $ sudo cp -f ~/Downloads/lwjgl-2.8.4/native/linux/libopenal64.so ~/.minecraft/bin/natives/libopenal64.so

    # close the terminal.
    # Open a new terminal ctrl+alt+t

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    #make sure everything has permission for you to run it.

    $ sudo chmod -R 777 .minecraft

    $ cd ~/Downloads

    $ sudo chmod a+x minecraft.jar

    $ java -Xmx256M -Xms256M -cp minecraft.jar net.minecraft.LauncherFrame

    Note. if you have 2GB or more ram on your mother board you may get better performance by alocating more ram to Minecraft. $ java -Xmx1048M -Xms512M -cp minecraft.jar net.minecraft.LauncherFrame

    After this you can goto your Downloads folder right click on minecraft.jar, scroll down to properties. Use the slider named Open with and select OpenJDK Jave 7 Runtime. Click OK.

    Now you can start Minecraft by double clicking the minecraft.jar icon, you can pick it up with your mouse and move it to your desktop if you like.

    And of course this woeful plea for help would be incomplete without the attached aforementioned log:

    Haha just kidding. I can't find that folder. I have: Desktop Documents Downloads minecraft Music Pictures Public Templates Videos minecraft.jar minecraft.svg in my home folder. Annoying.

    I appreciate any help to jump-start!

    You could Install Minecraft using my little script/app. Puts Minecraft in the meny, among else.

    The "minecraft.jar" you start with is not the game, just the launcher. So you need to download the actual game-resources to your computer before you can play offline. Which is what you do when you login for the first time.
