Thanks phhpro. Points well taken. We are currently looking at overhauling our current package management.

Francois, yes you are right. Sorry for going off topic.

Thanks everyone for taking the time to help me! In the quote is that all I need to use to launch minecraft after I link everything together? I will try all this once I get a day off from work, which will be January 2nd (I get home tired and careless from work, I don't want to mess anything up irreversibly). But since it sounds like this method may not work, I might just hold off on minecraft for a bit and look at some other games for porteus. Thank you for presenting the information in a manner that is easy for me, a newcomer to linux, to read and understand. I also find it interesting that my question led to the discovery of a bigger problem. If anyone finds a more definite solution, please let me know! And again thanks for helping me out! :)

This method works. I started the game on my computer this way. I will have my son test it, or play with it to go further. 8)
