So the download page no longer explains how to run it in Linux and the old command does not work on the new Minecraft.jar ( changed first letter to capital? ).  How the hell do you run it?

java -jar /path/to/Minecraft.jar

Never start vast projects with half-vast ideas.

That should be the way to launch Minecraft, mrmagos was right. If not, your Linux distribution may be a bit different, but I don't see how that would really affect anything. Try re-installing Minecraft if you still can't launch it.
