Install and Optimize Minecraft! Edit on GitHub

Alright! Hitch on and let’s go on!

Debian and Ubuntu

  First, you will need Java runtime.

sudo apt-get install openjdk-8-jre

So, you want oracle runtime instead? But…. fine….
Get the repository and install the package.

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:webupd8team/java
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install oracle-java8-installer

You will then download the launcher. Go to the minecraft.net page to download or…

wget http://s3.amazonaws.com/Minecraft.Download/launcher/Minecraft.jar

Now run the file! Log in with your username and password and start playing!
