How to play Minecraft on Linux Ubuntu

Minecraft is one of those games, which run on Ubuntu natively. Of course you will have to have Java set up correctly. I'll show you how to do that in a short video!
Disregard the sloppy gameplay in the video, without screencasting, everything will run smooth.


You need to install Sun Java 6
sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jdk
The most important command i used is
sudo update-java-alternatives -s java-6-sun
because even if the the sun-java6-jdk/jre is installed correctly, another jre/jdk like openjdk may be the preferred version of java, preventing Minecraft from starting.
The command will set SUNs JRE as the default one and evade problems.
