I was wondering what the name of minecrafts installation package was so that I could install it via terminal. I do have pidora installed on my pi.

sudo apt-get install [minecrafts download name]

    Pidora is Fedora-based, if I am not mistaken, should it not be yum instead of apt-get? On Raspbian it would indeed simply be sudo apt-get install minecraft-pi. – Ghanima Jan 26 '16 at 20:11

    You are 100% correct, thanks. I pretty confused considering the fact that I have a laptop with kali , a desktop with ubuntu, and a pi with pidora. – Martin Jan 26 '16 at 20:14

    Related: raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=28&t=80152 and kirsle.net/blog/entry/fedora-on-raspberry-pi if you happen to get it working, feel free to write your own answer - Q&A style! Checking the repo (minecraft site:pidora.ca) there seems to be no package. – Ghanima Jan 26 '16 at 20:25

    Side note 2: Pidora is the optimized Fedora remix for the Raspberry Pi, specifically the ARMv6 architecture. The Pi2 however with its ARMv7 processor can run Fedora just fine, see here – Ghanima Jan 26 '16 at 21:15

Since you are running Pidora, the package is minecraft-pi. So the command you need to enter would be:

sudo yum install minecraft-pi

    @pastacool sorry, just read the sudo apt-get install [minecrafts download name] so I assumed he was running Raspbian. I've edited my answer. – Patrick Cook Jan 30 '16 at 3:32
