The package version is the version of the launcher bootstrap - the part that actually downloads and updates the launcher.

That means the version number of the actual launcher ( is different from the version here (9xx+) on a fundamental level, and should not be compared.

The package is outdated only when the bootstrap version you get here is different from the bootstrap version you would get from when using the raw tarball.

I'm very new to Arch (I just installed today!), apologies if I'm missing something obvious.

I noticed some odd dependencies - dependencies that don't seem to be needed for the modern launcher. In particular, the java-runtime one - I edited PKGBUILD on my machine to remove java-runtime, with no ill effect.

Also, is it worth putting in optional: gnome-keyring? That way the login could be saved between sessions?

Is it possible to disable the bootstrap launcher updates?

Alright, I've figured it out. I used helvum to connect my headphone 'playback_FL' and "playback_FR' to channel 1 and channel 2 and now I can hear ingame sounds, great.

Yeah, maybe that's fine, now that I'm not really using Bluetooth audio, one thing PulseAudio doesn't really do properly. PulseAudio just has SBC, and all other codecs are pending a potential future release of GStreamer that may or may not come in the next decade.

@kode54 Or maybe just ditch that shit and switch to PulseAudio. Some time ago, audio on Linux was a nightmare. Then PulseAudio came and fixed it. Everything was working fine until someone decided a working system needed fixing. Now Pipewire is here to bring the nightmare back.

Anyway, this has nothing todo with this launcher, which is in fact just an updater and launcher for the launcher.

@sparkys: It's an artifact of having pipewire-jack installed. Somehow, the default jack device doesn't pick any sound devices for OpenAL outputs, so you end up with silence.

The annoying workaround is to use the graph in something like Carla, qpwgraph, or Helvum, to connect the OpenAL sound source to your sound output device. Or your output graph, if you're using EasyEffects.

There is no sound ingame (worlds and menus are silent) on any minecraft version. I'm using pipewire. All other multimedia works fine (playing music, videos etc). Have anyone encountered something like this before with this launcher?

@Jackleson The system's keychain aka. "OS level password manager" is used to securely store your session keys and is normally unlocked when you login to your computer. The launcher uses it on all systems, including GNOME/MATE, macOS and Windows, and so do all modern web browsers.

bryiewes, Yeah I figured out that it was a Manjaro issue, but now it simply will not install now since it leaves bad config or something behind. Manjaro just randomly over complicates the user experience and not because it is hard to understand just that nobody asked for that particular interaction. KDE Wallet is just badly introduced to the user. 90% of folks don't expect an OS level password manager to just shove itself into how they normally interact with a computer. worse its broken anyway. besides asking "why the fuck did it show up when i am literally just installing minecraft" it errors out when you select any option.
