If you were to install Java would you be able to run the .jar PC minecraft launcher? Optifine would be a must, lol.

Looking at this post http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewt ... 78&t=53460 It looks as though it will work but It might be a little slow. There are other versons for the pi that are modified and can run a little but faster. Source: http://pi.minecraft.net/

Will it work? Yes.
Will it work well? No.

A Pi simply doesn't have the resources necessary to run the full Minecraft efficiently or effectively.

Even if it was set to extremely low settings?

Minecraft is an extremely CPU intensive workload. Running the server makes my son's Win7 laptop run very hot.
There simply isn't enough grunt in the RPi to run a Minecraft server.

I've tried running the server on my Viglen MPC-L x86 Ubuntu box and it ran but was unplayable (plus that server wasn't usefully doing anything other than running the Minecraft server).

You need a big fat multi-core machine to run a Minecraft server.

Actually I think Minecraft uses a different OpenGL version than the raspberry pi does, OpenGl 1.0 vs. GLES 2.0.

No you don't, you just need better then the CPU on a Pi to run it. Minecraft doesn't use multiple CPUs, so more then 1 would be a waste for it.

Actually, you can run a spigot server on a raspberry pi. in fact, right now, there is a raspberry pi under my desk running a server.

I have tried running the full linux edition, and it looks like it is going to open, but the launcher crashes just as it is about to.

Update lwjgl in Minecraft :

Replace /home/pi/.minecraft/libraries/org/lwjgl/lwjgl/lwjgl/2.9.4-nightly-20150209/lwjgl-2.9.4-nightly-20150209.jar with :
http://orienteer.webspace.virginmedia.c ... 150209.jar

Replace /home/pi/.minecraft/libraries/org/lwjgl/lwjgl/lwjgl/2.9.4-nightly-20150209/lwjgl-2.9.4-nightly-20150209.jar.sha with :
http://orienteer.webspace.virginmedia.c ... 09.jar.sha

Download 2 libraries to ~/Minecraft/Natives :
http://orienteer.webspace.virginmedia.c ... iblwjgl.so
http://orienteer.webspace.virginmedia.c ... bopenal.so

Save run.sh to ~/Minecraft :
http://orienteer.webspace.virginmedia.c ... aft/run.sh
chmod +x run.sh
Edit run.sh, update MINECRAFT_LOGIN, MINECRAFT_USERNAME and MINECRAFT_PASSWORD to your own
From Terminal use ./run.sh

I'm actually running a Minecraft server on a Raspberry Pi 2. I found some dedicated server software called Craftbian. You are required to pay for the full version however it's only about £5. Well worth the money if you ask me. I'm running the latest version of spigot which is currently on 1.12.1 and it's got roughly 60 plugins installed too. It's not recommended to have more than 4 players at one time as it's starts to lag a bit with any more. Feel free to check out my Raspberry Pi server... The server DNS is... berryhollow.serveminecraft.net:25566 and let me know what you think.
