Minecraft on Linux
I have downloaded minecraft and minecraft_server.1.7.4.jar on my Fedora 20 computer and I am running it just fine.
To start the server I run the following command from the directory with the jar file:
# java -Xmx1G -Xms1G -jar ./minecraft_server.1.7.4.jar
I also downloaded the minecraft maping software Overviewer
To update the map I run the following command, where map_config is my settings:
# overviewer.py --config=map_config
java -Xmx1280M -Xms1280M -jar Minecraftserver1.19.2.jar
