Java is nice and cross-platform, but if you want to make client-side deployment of your application/game easy and mostly error-free you basically have to forget that and create X downloadable installer packages, each being your application bundled with a different runtime (Windows, Linux, Mac). You could even go as far as 32 bits / 64 bits, but I'd just take the easy road and only create a 32 bits windows, 32 bits Linux and 64 bits Mac bundle.

For the sake of completeness, even if it is a bit off-topic Smiley Java Web Start is also an alternative. Not problem free and maybe not easier than packaging installers/launchers for each platform.

That has the trouble of you already needing a runtime properly installed complete with proper functioning browser plugins Smiley That is usually where the problem lies.

If you're targeting Linux (particularly Ubuntu, etc.) then you can package everything as a .deb file.  This will then play well with the OS.  This a blog post on how I'm packaging Praxis LIVE as a .deb - http://praxisintermedia.wordpress.com/2013/03/28/packaging-as-a-deb/  It's relatively painless, though that process needs to be done on a Linux machine.  There is a Java based .deb system that should work cross platform (not tried it) at https://github.com/tcurdt/jdeb/
