Just installed Linux on chrome book with goal of using minecraft


Just bought a chrome book and worked with my 10 year old to try to install minecraft through linux.

I followed the following instructions
http://itechtriad.com/articles/2014/...n-a-chromebook

to enter developer mode in chromeos. Successfully istalled linux. Using KDE. I downloaded minecraft for linux. but instructions say I should be able to click bottom left KDE kickstarted button and see "edit applications" but it isnt there.

SO i have linux up. I have minecraft in. But I am stuck. (And I still think I need java installed. Any advice/

From your link:
Quote:
Note: If "edit applications" doesn't appear as an option, you will need to install kmenuedit. Open a terminal and type "sudo apt-get install kmenuedit". When this has installed, close the terminal, log out, log back in (restarting ubuntu) and try again)
Try that

I would think Ubuntu would already have java but I don't run it so I may be wrong.

Depends on what you really need. Not sure any distro's offer java.

This is a common web page that should point you in right direction. http://www.howtogeek.com/198476/how-...Speed=noscript

I can run MC just fine in Debian... What distro did you install? Every distro that I've used has java in the repos.

And what kind of chromebook do you have? Minecraft might not run very well; chromebooks weren't designed for games.

Sorry, I did answer that poorly. " java in the repos." is correct and what I meant.
