I've started playing minecraft, on my windows pc it works flawless but when playing on my ubuntu laptop it runs verry slow. I allready put all minecraft settings to minimal, i'm running oracle java 7 and opengl is supported. this are my specs:

  • lenovo Thinkpad X61s
  • Ubuntu 12.10 64bit
  • gnome-shell
  • 4G RAM
  • CPU: Intel® Core™2 Duo CPU L7500 @ 1.60GHz × 2
  • GPU: Intel® 965GM
  • 64G SSD

Appart from my gpu it looks like decent specs to me, is it just the gpu that slows it down or could i do something to speed it up?

Thanks in advance

Have you installed any drivers for your GPU? –  Seth Jan 21 '13 at 16:23
I added some intel driver ppa's, but no packages where updated. i didn't install any packages manually –  19J94V Jan 21 '13 at 20:27
