This used to just be an icon, but now it's a full-fledged installer. Load up the PPA: [link]. Or, if you'd prefer the manual script, it's attached (but it won't be getting updates whereas the PPA will).
Includes 48- and 64-pix icons I made in Inkscape to look particularly perfect in elementary (but also look good in Ubuntu and elsewhere). Also has QuickList items for your screenshots folder, texture packs folder, and the Minecraft Wiki!
anyone know the command to launch this from the terminal. I need to use the dedicated card on my laptop to play minecraft thus need to use bumblebee (aka run optirun in front of the command to have the laptop use the nvidia gpu)
java -Xmx2048M -Xms512M -cp /usr/share/minecraft/minecraft.jar net.minecraft.LauncherFrame. You can modify the .desktop file to put your optirun in front of it, so you can just click the icon and have it use optirun.
I was wondering if this only works with a premium account? cause my step-son doesn't have a premium account and he wants to try the demo I tried to use it under the demo it didn't do anything but hang at the download progress bar
It works just like the official Minecraft, well, because it is (it downloads it from Mojang). The way their client works is that you have to log into a valid Minecraft account the first time per user on the computer to download the appropriate files.
Thanks! I haven't planned anything, but might look at it when I have some more downtime. We don't officially design icons for third-party apps, but I figured in this case since I'm making an installer I might as well make an icon.
I'll upload an SVG once I'm more comfortable with it. Right now it's still pretty messy. Also, SVGs don't magically make the other sizes better, you still have to manually create each size (otherwise you'll get blurry/too-big/non-aligned bits).
I feel kind of stupid for asking, but if I wanted to set up a launcher icon for Minecraft that used this icon, how exactly would I do that? (I'm not that experienced at creating or editing .desktop files)
