    1. Download minecraft.jar from site.
    2. Install latest Java version from Ubuntu Software Center
    3. Now if minecraft.jar is saved in your home folder run this command
    4 java -jar minecraft.jar

    Or right click on minecraft.jar, click Permissions tab and tick "allow executing file as a program"
    Then right click on minecraft.jar again and open with JavaJDK...

    Just so you know, capitalization (or not) of file names is important in Linux. So the only difference from what MrMichaelHill says is that the current launcher download file is actually Minecraft.jar.

    So you would launch it with: java -jar Minecraft.jar
    i5 650 3.2 GHz, 8 GB, nvidia GTX 750 Ti, 32" 1080p | i7-4700MQ, 8 GB, Intel HD 4600/nvidia GTX 765M, 15.6" 1080p | etc.
