I have followed loads of tutorials, the launcher of Minecraft opens, but once i have logged in it presents me with a black screen. Does anyone have any ideas why this could be?

I downloaded Minecraft for Linux from minecraft.net
I tried running the file using both OpenJDK Java 7 Runtime and Oracle Java 7 Runtime
The file opened fine both times and I logged in as so
Then the screen went black and stayed that way.
Whenever I open minecraft from the launcher, minecraft opens for a brief second before closing and being replaced by the launcher. I read the launcher logs, and it says "Game ended in bad state (exit code 143)." I tried many times, and after restarting, re installing, etc. yet I still can't open minecraft.
