Rabbit Escape on Linux

Download it

Download Rabbit Escape for Linux

Download the .jar file using the button above and save it somewhere. (You may need to right-click the button and choose "Save Link As..." or similar.)

Run it

On some versions of Linux, you can just double-click on the file you downloaded and it will run.

If that doesn't work, open a Terminal and type:

cd Downloads

and then:

java -jar rabbit-escape-*.jar

(If you saved it to a different place, change "Downloads" to the right place.)

(Make sure you type it exactly right, including capitals.)

If the Rabbit Escape window doesn't appear, you may need to install Java: read the next section.

Is Java Installed?

It's quite likely you already have java installed. If not, to be able to play Rabbit Escape you need to install Java version 6 or above.

To find out, open a Terminal and type:

java -version

If you see something like java version "1.8.0_91" (plus loads more stuff), then you are all set.

If you see something like No command 'java' found (or similar, possibly with loads more stuff too), java is not installed and you should keep reading.

NOTE: if you are using the OpenJDK version of Java, sound will be disabled. See issue #9 for more info.

Install Java on Ubuntu/Debian/Mint

If you use Ubuntu, Debian or Mint, install the openjdk-8-jre package by opening a Terminal and typing:

sudo apt-get install openjdk-8-jre

More info: Java on Ubuntu, Java on Debian.

Running Rabbit Escape is almost exactly the same as running Minecraft. This tutorial might help: How to Play Minecraft in Ubuntu

Install Java on Fedora/RedHat/CentOS

If you use Fedora (and possibly RedHat or CentOS) install the java-1.8.0-openjdk package by opening a Terminal and typing:

su -c "yum install java-1.8.0-openjdk"

More info: Java on Fedora, Java on CentOS.

Install Java on Arch

If you use Arch Linux, install the jre8-openjdk package.

More info: Java on Arch.


If you're on a different Linux distribution, check the documentation, or download Java directly from Oracle by following the instructions on java.com.
