The launcher now requires version 11 of the OpenJDK software. It will not work on 'Bionic'/LM19, either.
This is an outdated launcher. It won't run current versions of MineCraft (1.14.3+) This can be very confusing, as when trouble-shooting they of course expect you to un/re-install, which just un/re-installs the same outdated launcher. Also, be careful to uninstall this version before installing the .deb from the Minecraft site; for some reason this version obscures the updated version until it's uninstalled.
I think I know why it doesn't work for us linux mint users, this version is for Xenial, not Bionic.
Does not work at all
To install minecraft go on minecraft.net and install the minecraft.deb version this sould work fine ;)
The installation through software manager does not work anymore. You must try some alternatives by community.
The description of the game is outdated & it cannot be installed in the latest Mint versions.
This launcher fails in Mint 19.1 and breaks Mint software installer !!! You have to install the official launcher Minecraft.deb
Usually doesn't work in 19.1; save yourself the trouble and download it direct from MAJONG's web site.
Broken in mint 19 and for the current version of minecraft. Get the official client from Mojiang.com
I have played minecraft since 2011 1.7.3 beta, this easy installer is outstanding, makes installing Minecraft so much easier then prior to this.
If you don't want to switch to oracle-java8, you can install the official launcher with: curl https://launcher.mojang.com/download/Minecraft.deb > Minecraft.deb; apt install ./Minecraft.deb
Still works with V1.13 but only works with oracle-java8. Any other java end with errors
Application fails to load - states error in loading. Does not function currently.
Couldn't play, it asks for 24€ to buy the game.
A pretty easy way to launch minecraft and it beats finding and clicking on the launcher.jar file every time I want to play! It is an out of date version of the launcher though therefore it is not as easy to use as the windows launcher. I understand this is most likely because it is unofficial.
I like this. Let me easily get back into playing some minecraft :)
It didn't install correctly. There appeared no "launch" button in the software manager and when I clicked on the laucher, in the menu, it just wouldn't start.
Muito Bom Ainda Melhor Por Causa Do Launcher Antigo
Hace lo que tiene que hacer. Genial! Does what have to do. Awesome!
