Channel Version Published

Minecraft Downloader and Installer

A fork of the Minecraft-NSG installer snap. Omits the Oracle version of Java and just runs with openjdk. Skips the dialog and just downloads the .jar and runs the installer.

This does not come WITH Minecraft pre-installed. It simply downloads the .jar and allows you to play it on your Linux box. Preferably a superior distribution that is capable of running snapd. <==sorry, not sorry.

By installing this snap, you agree to download and install the Minecraft.jar file required to run the game.
