Patching LWJGL in Minecraft (Linux)

Download the LWJGL files

  1. Go to the LWJGL download page and download the latest stable release.
  2. Open the .zip in Archive Manager.
  3. The jars are found in "jar" and the natives are found in "natives/linux"

Patch the LWJGL files by doing the following

  1. Open your home directory (You can usually just do this by opening the File Manager).
  2. Press Ctrl + H to see hidden folders.
  3. Open ".minecraft" and open the "bin" folder.
  4. Copy "jinput.jar", "lwjgl.jar" and "lwjgl_util.jar" from the "jar" folder.
  5. Now open up the "natives" folder and copy "ibjinput-linux.so", "libjinput-linux64.so", "liblwjgl.so", "liblwjgl64.so", "libopenal.so", "libopenal64.so" from "natives/linux".
