Please add flite as an optional dependency (for the narrator)

petr commented on 2018-11-07 12:03

gconf is a dependency, CEF directly depends on gconf symbols. This is not changing any time soon.

Some form of Java runtime 8 is a dependency and will remain so until the issues caused by ABI breaks in later versions are resolved in one way or another.

This package is fully up-to-date.

Can't we eliminate gconf and other dependencies?

Interesting, I always assumed MC was only java 8 compatible, but LegacyLauncher could well be the problem. Worth noting that forge plan on transitioning to a new modlauncher system with 1.13 (and anyone who wants to be forge-compatible will likely have to follow suit) so that may limit the issue to legacy versions and pre-1.13 mods.

@erkexzcx I'm pretty sure both the game and the launcher work fine under jre (version 10), as is my setup. A problem arises in the LegacyLauncher when trying to start stuff like OptiFine though.

@jpegxguy It is recommended to run Minecraft with Java 8.

erkexzcx commented on 2018-07-15 22:29

Updated - Minecraft client (game) works fine even with java version 10, but the actual launcher starts only with java version 8.

jpegxguy commented on 2018-07-06 17:24

Why is java-runtime=8 required? why not >=8 ?

The fix should be in. As long as you don't have something extra in the network doing caching, it should work.
