How to Run Minecraft Mods on Linux (Ubuntu)

  1. In Terminal, run the following command to install qt5-default:
sudo apt-get install -y qt5-default
  1. Download and install MultiMC.
  2. Log into your Minecraft account inside MultiMC
  3. Click “Add Instance” in MultiMC.
  4. Right-click on the instance you created in the previous step and select, “Edit Instance”. Then click “Install Forge”.
  5. Download mods from CurseForge (the files should end in “.jar”). Add them by going to “Edit Instance”->”Mods”->”Add” in MultiMC. NOTE: Make sure you are downloading “mods” and not something else – this tied me up for a while, as I was downloading .zip files and not .jar files.
  6. Launch Minecraft in MultiMC
