So I'm using Linux Ubuntu 14 and I have my desired texture pack but when i go to .minecraft it doesn't show a texture pack folder so I am unable to download resource packs what do I do to fix it? I already tried doing a re download but it didn't work.

The best method of opening a texture pack on the Linux OS is to:

1. Download a resource pack, you should get a .zip file

2. Open the folder to which you downloaded the file

3. Copy the .zip file

4. Type ~/.minecraft/resourcepacks/ in your file manager's address bar or in the console

5. Paste the file into the directory

6. Open Minecraft

7. Go to "Options", then "Resource Packs"

Final: The resource pack should now be listed and you can activate it by choosing it and hitting "Done".

  • The problem is is that there is no resource pack folder Nov 2, 2014 at 20:34
  • I just tried your theory and it didn't work Nov 2, 2014 at 20:42
  • This isn't a theory, it's the official minecraft way of adding texture packs on Linux. I believe you can add a folder for texture packs manually, by creating it in the correct folder.

  • So I can do all of this, but the texture pack doesn't actually apply in-game. I can select it in the "texture packs" window in the Minecraft menu, but no game textures actually change. I'm on Minecraft 1.3.1 on Ubuntu 16.04 Feb 4, 2018 at 21:14
