I saw the sticky thread but didn't know if I should post there or start new So I might put a Link in the sticky. I am not too programmer savvy though I desire to be. So here goes.
I play Minecraft in my spare time and I can no longer get it to run after updating Mint Debian last night. The error I get is an inability to find the java.lang.NullPointerException. The Minecraft.net site also is taking an exceptionally long time to load. This could be a traffic issue I realize but the page will read done and still be blank.
On to flash. I had to remove the Mint and Mozilla flash plug-ins and go with the non-free plug-in to get youtube and other similar sites to work. This seems to have solved the problem but I am curious why the other two crash and never load.
My hardware is getting old but all was working yesterday. I will appreciate any help, advice or comments.
