    Hey I'm trying to run some basic java games and failing at it. Minecraft doesn't give me an error but starmade managed to give me this. SSLException: java.lang.RuntimeException: Unexpected error: java.security.InvalidAlgorithmParameterException: the trustAnchors parameter must be non-empty

    I can't find anything behind what this means but I know it has to do with SSL certs and something with my java install. Any ideas?

    I got a fix. If you have any other java installed then you do this line

    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/java && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install oracle-java8-installer

    So you basically updated Java?

    Sort of. Lately the installs for java haven't been done correctly so doing it this way forces all the files to be mad and put in the correct places, then, anything else like new certs and whatnot are downloaded.

    I have never had any issues using open source java, instead of oracle's java, with Minecraft, both on Arch and the Linux Mint computer I set up for a cousin.

    When I have used Ubuntu 14.04 or Mint 17, OpenJDK is already installed. I think its version 7
    I was able to run Spiral Knights & Kingdom of Loot without any problems

    I have been able to run Minecraft with OpenJDK7 on Mint, and both OpenJDK 7 and 8 on Arch without any issues. I wonder how you have installed Java. If you install it normally from the official repository of whatever distro you are using, then it should work.

    It works now, I'm not going to question it.

    Now I just need PlayOnLinux to stop being stupid

    I've had limited success getting OpenJDK to reliably work with applications. 'Course, the last time I really tried was probably a year ago, so I don't know if the compatibility has gotten better or not.
