How to install Minecraft Bedrock Edition on Ubuntu 20.04


Today we are looking at how to install Minecraft Bedrock Edition in Ubuntu 20.04.  This method will install Minecraft Bedrock Edition.  You will require a Minecraft account to use it, which I don't have so I couldn't log in, but it does work!  Enjoy!

The first command will enable 32-bit architecture on the system.  The second command will refresh the system repositories, the third command will install 32-bit libraries which are required.  The fourth command will download the Minecraft Bedrock appimage.  The fifth command will make the appimage executable to run as a program and with the sixth command, we will move the appimage to the /opt directory where many third-party applications stores their data.  The last command will install a menu editor which we use afterward to add Minecraft Bedrock edition where we put the appimage as the command, you can choose any icon you like and choose a name for your launcher!  Enjoy!

Commands Used:
1) sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
2) sudo apt update
3) sudo apt install curl libc6-i386 libx11-6:i386 libegl1-mesa:i386 zlib1g:i386 libstdc++6:i386 libgl1-mesa-dri:i386 libasound2:i386 libpulse0:i386
4) curl -L https://github.com/ChristopherHX/linux-packaging-scripts/releases/download/appimage/Minecraft_Bedrock_Launcher-x86_64.0.0.510.AppImage --output MC.AppImage
5) chmod +x MC.AppImage
6) sudo mv MC.AppImage /opt/MC.AppImage
7) sudo apt install menulibre
