Can't get Minecraft to run on Ubuntu

Since downgrading to an older release of Ubuntu won't solve the problem for this version, I try to fix it this way. It is basically this guy's problem but with a little difference: Minecraft goes black on 12.04

Upgrading LWJGL does not work, as they are "already updated" in Minecraft 1.3. I think that other users of EEE901 have the same problem. I will still downgrade to other versions because it might be reasonable to try the Java JRE 6 trick. I will keep track on this thread on another computer meanwhile.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Download the latest copy of LWJGL from here and extract it

Copy the following to ~/.minecraft/bin

  • jinput.jar
  • lwjgl.jar
  • lwjgl_util.jar

And the following to ~/.minecraft/bin/natives


Then restart Minecraft

Make sure you overwrite the files that Minecraft downloads, they are out of date.

Whilst this may theoretically answer the question, it would be preferable to include the essential parts of the answer here, and provide the link for reference. – Eliah Kagan Aug 23 '12 at 15:29
