    Are you sure this is legal. Could someone without premium minecraft come and use this to play without paying?


    You have to be a premium user to use this. This is the exact same launcher that Mojang distributes and is perfectly legal, just in a Linux friendly form.

    That's awsome
    I can make a Script for this so when someone doesn't have sudo they can still install it!


    Thank you for your offer, although I think I'll stick with my debian package and just load the software in that :)

    I had actually already thought of that, I can't guarantee it'll be coming out anytime soon as I am a very busy college student, but I will begin work on it :)

    It should be noarch.

    Besides that, there are two things wrong with the start script, and some nitpicks:
    1) It will only work randomly, because the first line does not say "#!/bin/sh". Without this, starting from the shell does work, but running from a different program is likely to fail.
    2) It will keep the wrapper script in memory. To prevent this, you should write "exec java ..."
    3) You put the backup file of the script into the .deb
    4) You can use JAVA_HOME:
    "if [ -n "$JAVA_HOME" ]; then
    exec $JAVA_HOME/bin/java -jar foo.jar "[email protected]"
    else
    exec java -jar foo.jar "[email protected]"
    fi"


    Thank you for these suggestions :) I will implement as many as I can. I'm pretty new to the Linux scene and this is actually my first debian package, so I haven't achieved Linux perfection yet but I'm working on it :)

    Done!! 32 bit support is online, let me know if there are bugs as it was hastily put together on a virtualbox, but it was fully tested in that environment.

    It doesn't work because I don't have amd64


    I'm very sorry, I'm getting 32bit Ubuntu now to put on a virtualbox so I can rebuild this for you, please return soon, I will have it done before the end of the night.

    ?? isn't installing minecraft on linux as simple as downloading and running the jar launcher????

    yes and no, in some cases it is, in some cases it isn't, it depends on how your jvm is configured and not to mention the minecraft.jar file isn't exactly a Ubuntu friendly solution. This file makes having a good looking Minecraft installation easy.

    MAJOR PERFORMANCE IMPROVEMENTS!! Check out the latest version and it's new Java 7 functionality :D

    I put together a Ubuntu debian file for Minecraft that will actually install a Minecraft app in a good looking format, rather than the yucky mess Mojang gave Linux users to deal with.

    This Debian has been tested on Ubuntu but not the Debian OS, although it should work there.

    Note: Minecraft generates error files if you use the quit game button on Linux, this is not any fault of mine and has always been an issue on Minecraft for Linux.

    Please please please post bugs here, in all my testing of this debian file it has been flawless aside from glitches in Mojang's code, but if there is anything broken with my files I do sincerely want to fix it. I am very passionate about Ubuntu and Minecraft and it saddens me greatly that I have to step in and make a deb for Minecraft, but because I do have to I want this to be flawless.

    DOWNLOAD THE DEB HERE! TO UNINSTALL:
    • Run the following in a terminal:
    • sudo dpkg -r minecraft
    Disclaimer: the minecraft.jar included with this, and favicon.png are Mojang properties, the rest is my work though.

    Version Changelog

    1.1: Made the file mostly compliant with Ubuntu software center standards and specified usage of OpenJDK6

    1.2: Quick fix to use actual OpenJDK6 folder and not the link which is there on some systems but not others.

    1.3: Defined sh interpreter for wrapper script, and added performance improvements.

    1.4: Made the package architecture independent!

    1.5: YAY! Minecraft works with default configuration under OpenJDK 7 on Linux so this package now uses that for it's improved performance

    1.0 Refresh for latest launcher

    I am currently working on making this package entirely based on open source code, and then uploading it to the Ubuntu Software Center via a PPA. This is going well, I have found an open source alternative to everything included in the package and I'm now just ensuring I have permission to use the alternatives.

    These files were intended to be made as a replacement for your start.bat file, however these files do not allocate RAM on startup, if you wish to though you're welcome to edit them to allocate RAM on start up, the files were created for any system which is why I avoided system specific calls such as a RAM amount to allocate.

    Mmhmm yeah and theres all those fun people who hack your computer to hell by tunelling to your computer when you use Hamachi. :D
    I've never had any problems with Hamachi, nor have I seen anyone else have any problems with it. The only problem I've seen is people being scared of Hamachi. Unfortunately due to the way that the internet is set up, peer to peer is becoming impossible for the average computer user. The current internet model favors the server client connection, peer to peer technologies are nearly nonexistent, which is really a shame because peer to peer technology opens up a whole new world of possibilities for game designers and players. Hamachi brings us a bit closer to the peer to peer ideal by providing a server that breaks down the barriers put up by the structure of the internet.

    What problems are you having? Perhaps I can fix them.

    EDIT:
    HOW TO PLAY MINECRAFT MULTIPLAYER WITH UP TO 4 PLAYERS OVER THE INTERNET, FOR FREE AND WITHOUT KNOWING ANY NUMBERS!


    Want to play Minecraft Multiplayer but confused beyond belief by all the networking mumble jumbo you need to know? Enter LogMeIn Hamachi! Free software that will get you doing Minecraft multiplayer in no time at all, and without needing to know any networking numbers!

    Here's how to do it:
    1. Hit the "Try it Free" button at: https://secure.logme...oducts/hamachi/ (No time limits or anything, just a 5 computer limit.)
    2. Make an account with LogMeIn
    3. Create a LogMeIn network
    4. After having created your network hit the "Deployment" button under Networks
    5. Click "Add new link" then make whatever adjustments to the link you please, but make sure that the checkbox for your network besides "Networks" is checked.
    6. Install the software via the link you just made.
    7. Send the link out to your buddies and have them install the software.
    8. Start up Minecraft and go into one of your single player worlds, then press Esc and open to LAN
    9. Have your friends go into multiplayer on Minecraft, wait a bit for the scanner to find your world, then double click on your world to join it!
    How to add someone into the network who already has Hamachi: (This part requires a number! You can do it, don't freak out)
    1. Open your Hamachi client.
    2. Hover over the arrow by your network with your mouse cursor to reveal the Network ID
    3. Find the network ID, and write it down for later.
    4. Have your Hamachi owning friend open up the Hamachi client, then click on the "Network" tab then "Join an existing network"
    5. Have them put in the Network ID and password if your network has one.
    6. Have them click "Join"
    7. You're good to go!
    If the scanner doesn't find your world then the Hamachi network wasn't set up properly, if you followed these instructions to the word then the network should be properly configured.

    Also, I won't be moving to a GUI because the server is designed to be efficient. For this task I could either make it user friendly, or resource friendly, I chose resource friendly because I didn't want to have to tell someone who could play Minecraft Single Player, that they couldn't do Multiplayer.

    My main reason for creating this is that after having helped several of my friends set up their own Minecraft servers I'm realizing how poorly implemented multiplayer is for Minecraft as compared to other games. This is my attempt at giving a server the same kind of double click and play functionality that Minecraft itself has.

    For now at least, yes it is just a bunch of scripts, asides from the wget program which is part of the GNU project. There is no interface that I'm aware of to check the version, so everytime the server is started up it downloads the latest version.
