Adding minecraft to steam
Does someone know how to add minecraft to steam? I have my own command in my system for it, but I'd like to get it more tightly integrated.

Wonky for me since I can't seem to add .sh files, but it worked fine making a .desktop file.

Made a file named game.desktop:

[Desktop Entry]
Name=Add Game Test
Exec=/home/username/Gaming/Amnesia/Amnesia/Amnesia.bin64
Type=Application

When you 'ADD A GAME' and select the .desktop file, it shows up in the list as whatever you put in the 'Name=' line. So mine showed up as Add Game Test for me.

Launched Amnesia just fine for me. Just make sure you put the file location on the 'Exec=' line. If you don't know where it is you can just type this in terminal:

which nameofcommandhere
and it should spit out it's location.

I think on the 'Exec=' line you're going to have to point to JDK, plus arguements that'll point it to your Minecraft launcher. Don't really know those off-hand..

With that post I was assuming his Minecraft command just points to a script or something in /usr/bin or w/e that already contains those args. Pointing that 'Exec=' to my Minecraft launched it just fine.

I will just use my own script for launching minecraft. What I'm using is below:


java -Xmx4G -Xms4G -d64 -jar <PATH>/minecraft.jar

Why did you use 4 gigabyte ram for minecraft?

Because I can.

Find yourself a nice png icon, then create Minecraft.desktop anywhere you like using a text editor (such as gedit):

[Desktop Entry]
Categories=Games
Comment[en_US]=A voxel building game with several game modes
Comment=A voxel building game with several game modes
Exec=/usr/bin/java -Xmx1024M -Xms512M -jar /path/to/minecraft/minecraft.jar
GenericName[en_US]=Minecraft
GenericName=Minecraft
Icon=/path/to/minecraft/minecraft.png
MimeType=
Name[en_US]=Minecraft
Name=Minecraft
Path=/path/to/minecraft/
StartupNotify=true
Terminal=false
TerminalOptions=
Type=Application
Version=1.0
X-DBUS-ServiceName=
X-DBUS-StartupType=

or if (like me) you normally run openjdk but have sideloaded oracle's proprietary java to run certain applications, your exec line would look like:

Exec=/path/to/jre7/bin/java -Xmx1024M -Xms512M -cp '/path/to/minecraft/minecraft.jar' net.minecraft.LauncherFrame

Then import the .desktop file using Games > Add a Non-Steam Game to My Library...

You may have to manually edit the created shortcut in steam to make it work, sometimes it parses the lines weirdly and cuts out all the args/options in the exec line (right-click the minecraft shortcut, click properties.)
