Step 7 of the guide was confusing to me. It says click "edit profile", but you actually have to click Profile Editor and then double-click on the first listing. Click on Version Selection next to Use version to select the build number. Be aware that the default setting is 1.8.9. For now, use that version and then we can alter it once everything is working. Step 10 requires you to edit "" without further instructions. Open the Minecraft folder in your Pi directory, right-click the file and choose Text Editor. To start Minecraft there are two options.
