I recently received a Minecraft 1.5.2.jar file and downloaded it as seen in the picture below. Minecraft 1.5.2

I used the command java -jar minecraft.jar but it returns the error enter image description here

Can anyone help me out with launching this file, please? If anyone can give me the next steps to launch this file, it will be appreciated.


  • You need to do this in the Downloads directory, run cd Downloads first.
