Still install Minecraft on Ubuntu it is not precisely a difficult task, the simpler the procedure the better, especially in the face of novice users. And nothing easier to install the popular video game than a simple one script.
The script, written by Cassidy James and Cody Garver, is called Unofficial Minecraft Installer, is completely free and has a repositories hosted on Launchpad, so to use it just add the PPA (valid for Ubuntu 12.10, 12.04 and 13.04):
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:minecraft-installer-peeps/minecraft-installer
Refresh local information:
sudo apt-get update
And perform the installation:
sudo apt-get install minecraft-installer
The script connects directly to the official server, downloading all the files needed to run the game. Also, if it is no longer there, install it OpenJDK 7.
When finished all you have to do is run the game application and then enter our credentials. The script adds, in addition to the launcher, quick lists for the screenshot folder, textures, and video game wiki.
