First install java. To do so, open a terminal and type

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install openjdk-7-jre
Then, download the launcher and type

Code: Select all

cd ~/Downloads/
chmod +x craftlandlauncher.jar
java -jar craftlandloader.jar
And you're good to go!

For the recorder, download the recorder library in the launcher and hope it doesn't break on linux :P

Double clicking the loader should work, but if it doesn't you can create a bash script (launch.sh for example) that contains this line:

Code: Select all

java -jar craftlandloader.jar
(This implies that the loader and the script are in the same folder)

You will need to mark it as executable so open a terminal and type

Code: Select all

chmod +x launch.sh
