All right I'm going to make this stupid simple to understand since simple English is not any more. Minecraft just started to crash after some time of Ubuntu not being used. This is the error information the Launcher gives me.

  • You need more details. Just telling us you use minecraft 1.8.7 in Linux on java 8 doesn't help anything. – Universal Electricity Aug 14 '15 at 6:18
  1. Look through this Minecraft Forum post.
  2. Upgrade your graphics card
  3. Upgrade LWJGL
  4. Get a new graphics card

Hopefully one of those works or the crash changes.
