How to install Minecraft on Kali Linux

Of course, Kali Linux is not used for games, and as a main operating system, it is also rarely used. But if you still want to play Minecraft in Kali Linux, then follow the instructions below.

If you install Minecraft on pure Kali Linux, then we need to add repositories to the system. This will allow you to install all the necessary programs from the official repositories. If you did this before, then skip this part.

Open this file /etc/apt/sources.list:
sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list

Next, insert this command there:
deb kali-rolling main non-free contrib

Updating the system:
sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade

I think many people know that to run Minecraft, you need Java. And the first thing we do is install Java on Kali Linux. It is very easy to do. Just execute this command in the terminal:
sudo apt-get install openjdk-8-jdk

If Java was successfully installed, you can now start Minecraft. You can download (buy) Minecraft on the official website, or just download TLauncher (google it). Minecraft for Linux is a simple jar file that can be launched with a double click.

But in order to make it possible to launch minecraft.jar with a double click, you need to go to the file properties, and in the permission tab, click on the checkmark "Allow this file to run as a program".
