Minecraft not launching

Recently I have installed TLauncher for playing Minecraft. I selected version 16.5. But when I'm trying to run the game it's showing an error that "Minecraft has not started because of an unknown error. A popular solution for the problem
*Try to reinstall another version of Java, after Java 8 update 45
*Try to update the video card drivers."

How can I fix that? I'm sure there is a way. In YouTube there are many videos but they all are of Windows 10. They are actually reinstalling Java in there video. Does anyone know anything?

May help?

Just carefully follow this step :point_up_2:

If you are downloading latest version of Minecraft java 17 is needed


This may be the problem: first try this command: sudo update-java-alternatives --list
See that you have the required Java 17 installed
next use this command: sudo update-alternatives --config java
Insure Java 17 is selected

Hope that helps!

Thank you for your kind reply. Currently I'm having a 32bit operating system so I can't install Java 17. :slightly_smiling_face:. What else can I do? BTW I have installed Minecraft 16.5 version. I have both Java 8 and 11 in my system.

Java 8 is need for 1.16.5 so u should install Java 8

take a look at this link: How to Install Minecraft on Linux?
