Missing dependency issue : Permanently resolved

Missing dependency gconf I think.

./launcher: error while loading shared libraries: libgconf-2.so.4: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

hi, libxss is needed as dependancy: ./launcher: error while loading shared libraries: libXss.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I suspect the underlying problem is that Mojang update their "staging" tar, but do not create versioned release archives. Therefore this package is stuck on the latest (broken) release 2.0.579, while Minecraft_staging.tar.gz stays updated and keeps working.

IMO Mojang need to improve the way they handle this, preferably by creating more releases and keeping this package in sync with them. Otherwise we are forced to use packages such as minecraft-launcher-tar that try to keep in sync with the (fully functional) staging build.

@SuperGeniusZeb I added gconf to the dependencies and updated Minecraft to the latest version. Thank you :)

It's impossible to run this because it depends on a old version of icu.

It's been over a year since the initial linux beta release, and almost half a year since the last update. Any news on an official release?

I tried to run this on a fresh Antergos installation and I got this error:

"./launcher: error while loading shared libraries: libgconf-2.so.4: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"

This file, which should be located at "/usr/lib/libgconf-2.so.4", is provided by the gconf package, which is not listed as a dependency of this package.

https://www.archlinux.org/packages/extra/x86_64/gconf/

Simply add the gconf package as a dependency and that should fix the problem.
