Just posting an update since its been awhile and I just had to test Minion in Ubuntu 18x.

This is what I did to get Minion running...
  1. Download jdk8 from oracle, you need an account but its free
    Download latest jkd-8u___-linux-x64.tar.gz into your Download directory ~/Downloads
  2. Open up terminal and...
  3. cd ~/Downloads
  4. wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/ch...nstall-java.sh
  5. chmod +x install-java.sh
  6. sudo ./install-java.sh -f jdk-8u311-linux-x64.tar.gz
    Answer 'y' to all questions
  7. Verify we have jdk8 as default:
    java -version
    java version "1.8.0_311"
    Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_311-b11)
    Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.311-b11, mixed mode)
  8. wget https://cdn.mmoui.com/minion/v3/Minion3.0.5-java.zip
  9. mkdir minion
  10. unzip Minion3.0.5-java.zip -d minion
  11. cd minion
  12. java -jar Minion-jfx.jar
  13. Update Minion and it will quit. There is a bug where it will download the update into a sub directory named "null" inside the minion directory.
  14. cd null
  15. java -jar Minion-jfx.jar
