Ubuntu – Minecraft in jdk 1.7.0_u2 x64


I have Ubuntu 11.10 64-bit and I installed JDK 1.7.0 update 2 x64 via webupd8 page. But currently I have problem with minecraft game. After downloading launcher from Minecraft.net and lauch the game by java -jar /home/zrebec/Downloads/minecraft.jar launcehr is launched normaly, after login the game download the updates but then I got just the black screen with this in terminal:

Setting user: zrebec, -356009615199623309
Exception in thread "Minecraft main thread" java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: /home/zrebec/.minecraft/bin/natives/liblwjgl.so: /home/zrebec/.minecraft/bin/natives/liblwjgl.so: wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS32 (Possible cause: architecture word width mismatch)

Please anyone can help me with this? I think that problem will be in architecture becase:

liblwjgl.so: /home/zrebec/.minecraft/bin/natives/liblwjgl.so: wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS32 (Possible cause: architecture word width mismatch)

Any idea please?

I know, maybe this one is off topic because maybe its not Ubuntu problem maybe but in 64-bit works all perfectly and I think that accepted answer can help to many users and can make better playing games under linux. Really. Thank you very much for any idea.

Instead of launching a script everytime you want to run minecraft, you can also add the libraries to the ldconfig:

sudo su -c "echo [path to java]/lib/amd64(or i386) > /etc/ld.so.conf.d/java.conf"
sudo ldconfig

now just run minecraft by opening it with java in the file manager

(example of line 1: sudo su -c "echo /usr/lib/jvm/oracle-java/lib/amd64 > /etc/ld.so.conf.d/java.conf")
