Fresh install of Ubuntu 12.10 but I want to claim a purchase of Minecraft that I bought with the old install using Ubuntu Software Center. Don't see an intuitive way of downloading your purchased items. I have the email payment confirmation. Any advice?

Using the Ubuntu Software Center simply go to File --> Reinstall Previous Purchases to reinstall software you've already purchased.
