Play on Linux guide

Someone made a guide for playing Jack on Linux

here is the link to the guide:…/t…/jack-mclantern-guide.2782/
Jack will have an official Linux release, but for the time being this is awesome.

That would be me!
Looks like there is a Jack McLantern Linux port available, but untested... I'm going to check it out

That would be great!

I was able to download it and launch it, but upon loading everything is black except the HUD. I tried different resolutions and quality settings, even disabled everything in-game settings but nothing... just black. I can hear Jack running around and interacting that is about it.


  • Mint 19 64-bit (based on Ubuntu)
  • GeForce GTX 1060
  • Nvidia 415.25
  • AMD CPU 6-core
  • 8 GB RAM DDR3 1333
  • Samsung SSD

I'm looking into it

Thank you!  No rush of course...

Let me know when its updated and I'll test again.

Also, I have 6 PCs all with Linux and different Video Cards.  So I can test the performance with higher and lower GeForce cards.
