Modloaders for Minecraft on Linux?

Hi all.

Not to long ago somewhere I saw discussion on modloaders for Minecraft, and in particular, ones that make the process easier for Linux.  I can't remember what ones people were suggesting to use, so I was wondering if any of y'all had any ideas.

Now I know it all depends on a number of factors, examples being what DE you use, what init service you use, what package manager you use, and much, much more.  My priority in modloaders that would be easiest / best to use are for:

1. Debian or Debian-based distributions
2. Systemd (although *not* my preferred init service), simply because of its prevalence in Debian(-based) distros today
3. Can be installed by apt / dpkg, or by a git project

Hope this discussion will make things easier for others, too smile

The artifical intelligence looked upon the users, who queried, "If a tree falls in the woods, does it make a sound?" and replied, "If a man lies on the ground, does he sink into the earth?"

Death to the Golden Rule fnord!

Hey there!

I had this discussion with my son some time ago and he ended up using the FeedTheBeast-App which is easily installable through the provided shell script. It seems to be:

1. Distro agnostic
2. not depending on any part of your init-system

We had it running on endlessOS and now i can confirm it to function well on debian testing with experimental beryllium repos enabled. Well, besids the kown problems with electron-apps and sandboxing...
