    I have been following the instructions on the set up wiki for craftbukkit. I have java downloaded from the ubuntu software center (tried both versions 6 and 7).

    I have created a file called '' and pasted this in (from the wiki).

    BINDIR=$(dirname "$(readlink -fn "$0")")
    cd "$BINDIR"
    java -Xmx1024M -jar craftbukkit.jar -o true

    I then downloaded the latest build and have it named 'craftbukkit.jar'

    the .sh has the permission to execute and when i double click it I tell it to
    open in the terminal but all it does is open the terminal and close it.

    i don't remember having this much trouble in the past. any help is much appreciated.

    Also the files are in the same directory...

    wcnoco add "read -n1 -r -p" to the end of your script. This should leave your console up so it does not close right away. Then tell us what your console prints out.

    just did, the console seems to stay lit like half a second longer, but prints nothing and closes

  6. Changing the name of the file doesn't change anything, other than the name of the file ;) What you've downloaded is "bukkit" most likely. Unfortunately, you need CraftBukkit to run a server, and you cannot obtain this due to the DMCA.
