Problems (2):

Running on Raspbian Jessie Lite gave the error message:

./tcanim1v15: error while loading shared libraries: libjpeg.so.8: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

To fix this, while connected to the internet, type:

sudo apt-get install libjpeg8


Running on Raspbian Stretch (4.9.59-v7+ #1047) gave the error message:

./tcanim1v15: error while loading shared libraries: libGLESv2.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

To fix this, while connected to the internet (for the first line at least), type:

sudo apt-get install libjpeg8

sudo cp /opt/minecraft-pi/lib/brcm/libEGL.so /usr/lib

sudo cp /opt/minecraft-pi/lib/brcm/libGLESv2.so /usr/lib
