Unable To run minecraft on my linux


So I have a linux Kubuntu 12.04 64 bit. Also I have JDK Java 7 Runtime I have recently dowanloaded a minecraft.jar file to my Linux home folder. When I go to the minecraft.jar file and right click on it and choose the option to run with java 7 run time, the computer show the file is trying to run in the task bar and the "loading" mouse icon is showing. Then it just stops and nothing happens. I think there's a few thing I'm missing but I'm new to linux still. Please help and I'll be greatful for a response.

Kubuntu is Ubuntu but comes with the KDE desktop environment. This site may prove useful to you.

The site below provides pretty detailed instructions. Did you check to see if your .jar file is executable?

That didn't work. And I doubel check to make sure the minecraft.jar file was executable. Also I've tried to run/install it through my terminal but it keeps saying that it can't find the file minecraft.jar..

it might say that cant find the file because you are not in the right directory. So before you do any command on the command line move to the right folder.

If your file is in the downloads folder then type on terminal
Code:
cd /home/Downloads
once you have done that then you can type:
Code:
chmod +x Minecraft.jar
finally type:
Code:
java -jar Minecraft.jar
try that and let us know how goes.

This is fairly strange because I find Minecraft pretty much runs out of the box even on Debian Wheezy. Ubuntu tends to be a little closer to the front line for things like games, useful drivers, etc. Right clicking from the folder ought to work, and being as you will be right clicking the file itself, the path would tend to be irrelevant I would think.

Nevertheless, the issue folks are trying to get resolved right now is --
Code:
EinsamPyro@lions-HP-dc5000-uT-DZ216AV:~$ cd /home/Downloads
bash: cd: /home/Downloads: No such file or directory
You have not gotten to the appropriate folder yet. See the error? "No such file or directory".

So TroN is trying to get you to the correct directory by showing you what he thinks the correct path is.

Another thing you can do is "ls" wherever you are and navigate one folder at a time using "cd".

Good luck!
