First off, I have tried downloading Minecraft. I logged in, and the launcher did work. But, when I tried to "play Demo", this is what showed up:

Developer Console before clicking "Play Demo"

I also want to know how to install tar.gz files. Google offers me no help. That is how I want to install OpenJDK7 x64. (ie from the Oracle Website).

I have Ubuntu 12.10 LTS. The server works fine, and all its features. It's just the actual game that I'm worried about.

OpenJDK is not made by Oracle, they make Oracle Java. –  minerz029 Sep 12 '13 at 7:19

You can install openjdk7 from the Ubuntu Store, and right click on "Minecraft" and click run with OpenJDK7.
