    posted a message on [INSTALL] Ubuntu Minecraft Installer [UPDATE 2.0]
    You can go ahead and take a look here:
    http://www.minecraftforum.net/topic/1885424-minecraft-client-server-installer-for-linuxunixbsds

    This should work (make sure to uninstall your current Minecraft launcher with the original software to do so)

    posted a message on Minecraft Client & Server installer for Linux/UNIX/BSDs
    mc-NIX
    The de-facto Minecraft installer for all Unices.


    mc-NIX: A Minecraft client & server installer for nearly all Unices.


    What is it?

    mc-NIX is a shell script which installs Minecraft to nearly any form of UNIX, regardless of the distribution or architecture. The purpose is to make running and playing Minecraft or hosting a Minecraft server easy on nearly any platform, not just specific ones.

    How does it work?

    Put simply, it is a shell script which makes the appropriate files for both servers and clients. It downloads the Minecraft launcher from Mojang's servers and places it into a system directory for programs, then links the proper binary files to launch the launcher.

    On Unity, GNOME Shell, GNOME 2.0, Mate, XFCE, Cinnamon, KDE, and just about every other FreeDesktop.org compliant desktop, it will place a menu icon for Minecraft in your launcher. In addition to this launcher, it adds a command line option to start the game simply by running the command "minecraft" via a terminal.

    Why not just put minecraft.jar on your desktop?

    This is better than doing that because this makes Minecraft run as if it were any other program on your computer. It bothers me having to run Minecraft in a special way, when there are ways to make it feel more native, although it is still a Java program.

    Installation Instructions:
    1. Head over to https://bitbucket.or...ojon/mc-nix/src
    2. Download mcnix.sh to your computer
    3. Mark mcnix.sh as executable (chmod +x ~/Downloads/mcnix.sh)
    4. Open mcnix.sh in a terminal
    5. Follow the instructions provided by the command-line interface
    Questions and Answers:

    Q: Can I use this on a server with no GUI?
    A: Yes, so long as you install openjdk-7-jre-headless before installing the server.

    Q: Does this work on OS X?
    A: No. OS X, although based upon BSD, does not use the same FreeDesktop.org specifications that most other desktop environments use. Wait for an OS X-compatible version to be released.

    Q: What cannot run this?
    A: Windows (through Cygwin) and OS X for now. It should work on most everything else.

    Q: Can I steal your work and call it my own?
    A: No, you must give me credit and include the GPL v2.0 (or greater) license.

    I made my own script inspired by this one that installs Minecraft. You can check it out here -
    https://bitbucket.org/alfonsojon/mc-nix/overview

    It works perfectly and is compatible with JRE 7 :)

    Quote from Endeavor_Craft

    Really fun program. Just making this post to see what Lego Leaguers are out there. Make yourself known! You have a lot to be proud of. :biggrin.gif:

    Used to be in it for the Gifted program. Then I was going to get into real robotics in High School, but we moved, so no robotics for me anymore :sad.gif:

    posted a message on [OBSELETE] CUI - GUI Visualizer for WorldEdit [v1.4.6]
    I would have a literal heart attack if you could add a keyboard shortcut to clear the selection, hopefully changeable in the keyboard binding options?

    If you could do this, me and about 100 other users would actually want it, because a majority of players see //sel cuboid as an alien command.

    Thank you for continuing to develop this amazing mod, but like I said, a clear selection key would be so convenient.

    posted a message on Chrome OS, problems with startx
    Quote from jackwilsdon

    Hello Minecraftforums, I hope there are some linux 'experts' reading this, as I am stumped :S
    I am having problems with starting X on ChromeOS Vanilla (hexxeh build), as I get an error relating to xterm not being found, as well as TWM not being found.
    It boots with the boot logo (chromium on a white screen with google logo) then falls to a dead tty (one that I can type in but nothing happens). From there I can gain access to another TTY with CTRL+F2.
    The computer is a early 2008 Macbook Pro.
    Graphics hardware is an ATI Radeon X1600.
    I'm not new to linux but I can't see the problem.
    Thanks
    - Jack

    Probably not missing drivers, sounds like a nuked install. Try finding another build, make sure the MD5 and the SHA1 match, and you should be good.

    If you're missing xterm, you're missing everything. The GUI runs on top of Xterm which is run by TTY.

    posted a message on Bukkit server help after utorrent!
    This would be an error with your ports. Hold the windows key and press R, type taskkill -im java.exe and then see if uTorrent is really uninstalled. Also try changing your ports and if it's still not working, try using LogMeIn Hamachi.
