HOWTO manually install JAVA and MINECRAFT

2 guides for the price of one : Smile

Download Java from web site :
http://www.java.com/en/download/linux_manual.jsp
- If your linux is 32 bits : Linux (for example jre-8u73-linux-i586.tar.gz)
- If your linux is 64 bits : Linux x64 (for example jre-8u73-linux-x64.tar.gz)

Install Java from terminal shell :
for example :
Code:
# tar -xvf jre-8u73-linux-x64.tar.gz
# mkdir /usr/java/
# mv jre1.8.0_73/ /usr/java/
# ln -s /usr/java/jre1.8.0_73/bin/* /usr/bin/


Download Minecraft.jar from :
https://minecraft.net/download

Run it from console :
Code:
# java -jar Minecraft.jar


PS : to create a new account, it will not work from Minecraft
It is better to create an account directly in a browser at https://account.mojang.com/

Subject description: What am I doing wrong?
 

I followed these institutions to the letter. The Java installed to /use/Java/ but Minecraft did not run after console root# java -jar Minecraft.jar. I checked my pwd, is there some reason why this wouldn't work on tharpup 6.0.5(solved). I must have typed it wrong. It is working now. I hope I didn't reply in the wrong place. Sorry if that is the case.
