You don't need JRE/JDK from Oracle speicifically, OpenJDK has no difference (but freer license).
Though not all distros provide OpenJFX 8. For Ubuntu-based a possible solution is outlined here: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...x/+bug/1799946

To run on JDK+JFX 11 Minion will need be converted to modules, it seems. At least that the error I got from trying to launch it in this setup.

Instead of changing the default JDK as calvin.scones suggests, one may simply run
/usr/lib/jvm/java-8-openjdk/bin/java -jar Minion-jfx.jar
