Ubuntu and forge


Recommended Posts

hay all ,



been reading up on trying to get forge running on my home linux servers .. 


I have no issues getting a regular mc vanilla server up and running .. been doing that for years . using spigot and other addons .. 


but with forge i cant seem to get the correct syntax to get the server up and running 


all my files are set to full perms on the dir that i want to load from but ever time i just get 



after running the installer I get this 


    /home/.../forge/./libraries/net/minecraftforge/forge/1.16.1-32.0.108/forge-1.16.1-32.0.108-server.jar Validated: 35a8f893b7b7e46ee0df59803ca44027735cba1b
  Cache Hit!
The server installed successfully, you should now be able to run the file forge
You can delete this installer file now if you wish



so i know the installer is installed and configured . but when i try and run the server files i just get this ( yes i know there are no memory options in the command i just left them out to see if i could just get it working ) 


and the server version

#java -jar forge-1.16.1-32.0.108-server.jar 
Error: Invalid or corrupt jarfile forge-1.16.1-32.0.108-server.jar


either running the universal

# java -jar forge-1.16.1-32.0.108-universal.jar 
no main manifest attribute, in forge-1.16.1-32.0.108-universal.jar


and yes i have verified that java is installed ( currently running a vanilla server with out any issues .. and yes stopped it for doing the forge install and trying to run this install / server version) 


:~/forge$ java -version
openjdk version "1.8.0_265"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_265-8u265-b01-0ubuntu2~20.04-b01)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.265-b01, mixed mode)



any tips .. or help would be amazing i would like to get this running .. and there is not really any documentation out there for running under linux anywhere . mostly only windows and the few places i found linux docs are sparse at that

You need to run the forge-1.16.1-32.0.108.jar file that is generated directly in the target folder, not any other file.
