minecraft is such a great game, but it can b a pain to get to run on linux(i know this from experience) so for all linux user who want to run minecraft or are running it already but through wine,which isnt the best for running java on, i will show u how to nativly play it on linux.

firstly download openjdk 6 heres the commands you type in the terminal for a few linux distros

ubuntu- $ sudo apt-get install openjdk-6-jre

open suse- $ sudo zypper install java-1.6.0-openjdk

fedora- $ su -c "yum install java-1.6.0-openjdk"

red hat enterprise linux, CentOS, etc.- $ su -c "rpm -Uvh http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/epel/5/i386/epel-release-5-2.noarch.rpm"

debian- $ sudo apt-get install openjdk-6-jre

now with that installed you can run the minecraft launcher and all, but after you log in it just hangs at a black screen. its because of the game engine(yea kinda important). the engine that minecraft uses is the light weight java game library or lwjgl for short

so first download lwjgl from here

nextly extract the contents to a folder somewhere on your desktop(or where ever you can find it)

now follow these steps-

-navigate to the minecraft game data directory in nautilus: /home/user/.minecraft/bin (sum distros it doesnt hide it but sum it does. simply pressing CTRL-H displays them. alternatively u can just go to view and then click show hidden folders to view minecraft)
-drag jinput.jar lwjgl.jar lwjgl_util.jar from the archive to the minecraft gamedata directory
-open native/linux/ in the archive
-navigate to /home/user/.minecraft/bin/natives
-drag everything from native/linux/ to /home/user/.minecraft/bin/natives
-ur done! start the game!

hopw this helped some people out. if you have any questions or need help feel free to ask

Isn't .minecraft a hidden file? Shouldn't you tell them how to make it a visible file just encase they do not know how?

XP: go to my computer\local disk C\documents and settings\(your username) then click tools>folder options>view>hidden files and folders then click show hidden files and folders then go to application data or %appdata% then you will see .minecraft


All window O.S: go windows button + R then type %appdata%

It wasn't for me. I already know how to show hidden folders on most distros. I meant to put it in your post so people don't annoy the crap out of you. (Some people don't read the other posts.)
