I haven't played minecraft for probably over a year now and want to start playing some new mods and stuff, so I thought I'd start at the basics.
So I load up the game all normal and type in my details. Then a black screen appears. I leave it, thinking maybe it's doing some crazy new loading screen or something? But I can hear the menu buttons, like when you start a new world.
Any ideas what it could be? I don't know much about the technical side of Minecraft, so keep it simple.
I use Linux.
