    Minecraft launch stuck on 'Updating Minecraft .. Done Loading'

    Hi

    Im trying to install and run Minecraft on Ubuntu 10.04.

    When i click on the minecraft.jar file and select 'open with OpenJDK Java 6 runtime' it loads the login screen, I enter my login details , then i click on the 'play demo' button then it goes to a loading screen saying 'Updating minecraft ... done loading' The loading bar stops just short of the end and thats all that happens.

    I have tried the Minecraft installer, all seemed to go well but it still doesnt load. Instead now i go to terminal and type 'minecraft' i then go to sign in , but i still end up stuck on the same loading screen.

    I have been looking at other threads with this error but nothing seems to work.

    I am trying it on demo mode to see if it works, then if it does i want to go premium.

    Can anyone help? im not very techy

    This guide would be good if the instructions were clearer;

    http://www.minecraftforum.net/topic/...ix-for-ubuntu/

    I dont understand the point about downloading the demo version. Surely that is the same version as the full version. There is detail about downloading 2 different minecraft.jar files, but i find the instructions there very hard to follow.

    Could anyone give me some help with this ?

    Thanks

    Try update to openjdk-7 ?

    sudo apt-get install openjdk-7-jre

    But my guess would be that you need to update/change your graphicdrivers.

    Hi ,

    I tried to update the openJDK , this messege came back;

    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    Package openjdk-7-jre is not available, but is referred to by another package.
    This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
    is only available from another source
    E: Package openjdk-7-jre has no installation candidate


    How do i know if my graphics drivers are up to date, is there a terminal command for that?

    thanks

    I don't recall if I have successfully run minecraft in 10.04. When I tried it earlier in 64-bit 10.04 on an old single core computer from 2004 with legacy ATI X1300 graphics it did not seem to run completely, although, I forget how far it got.

    It did run in 64-bit 10.10 on a 1.66 GHz dual core laptop from 2006 with legacy ATI mobile X1300 video, and has run fine on other computers running 64-bit 10.10, 11.10, and 12.04, all using openjdk-6. It probably helps to have more than one core, but I have played it on a 1GHz 2 core tablet PC w/2GB RAM on 11.10 booted from SD card.

    Older integrated Intel video may be slow.

    To see what video you have and modules loaded for it in a terminal type: sudo lspci -v

    When you post the video related part of that output, highlight it and click # at top of message window to wrap it with code tags and preserve formatting.

    Tried every solution I could find - the only thing that worked was running with Java 6 instead of Java 7 (which is what I was originally trying with. (That's Oracle, btw. No idea about openjava.)
