Troubleshooting

If the game does not launch, make sure java 8 is being used.

System-wide:

sudo alternatives --config java
Then, type the number corresponding to the line containing java-1.8.0-openjdk.x86_64

Minecraft only:

New launcher:

  • Select "launch options"
  • Click and allow the "Advanced Settings" option
  • Click on the profile you want to use
  • Click the "java executable" option
  • In the text field enter: /usr/lib/jvm/jre-1.8.0/bin/java and click save

Old java launcher:

  • Click "Edit Profile"
  • Click the "Executable" option
  • In the text field enter: /usr/lib/jvm/jre-1.8.0/bin/java and click save profile

If logging in using the old java launcher does not work, edit the /opt/minecraft-java/minecraft-java.sh file as root and replace the java command on the second line with /usr/lib/jvm/jre-1.8.0/bin/java
