I have Oracle Java, I am opening it as an executable.

Minecraft runs perfectly on my Windows computer, but I want it on my Ubuntu laptop.

When I open Minecraft I get as far as the launcher, but when I press play it halts with the following exception:

Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM warning: Using incremental CMS is deprecated and will likely be removed in a future release
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM warning: You have loaded library /home/thomas/.minecraft/versions/1.8.1/1.8.1-natives-13673203295934/liblwjgl64.so which might have disabled stack guard. The VM will try to fix the stack guard now.
It's highly recommended that you fix the library with 'execstack -c <libfile>', or link it with '-z noexecstack'.

  • This comment: "So I have oracle". Are you running Oracle Linux? If so you are in the wrong place, this is Ubuntu forums. – John Kirchner May 12 '15 at 23:51
  • @JohnKirchner I would assume he means Oracle Java. – RPiAwesomeness May 12 '15 at 23:58
  • I see, the comments from OP are fixed. – John Kirchner May 13 '15 at 0:05

You appear to be using an ARM cpu, which minecraft does not support.

  • So I won't be able to run minecraft because of my processor? – Thomas Brogan May 13 '15 at 0:59
  • @ThomasBrogan, yes. Minecraft downloads and uses several native libraries that are only supported on i386 and amd64. – psusi May 13 '15 at 13:10
