To be able to start minecraft offline and/or to save some bandwith with skipping the download of the launcher each start, I would suggest changing /usr/bin/minecraft to


# fix for users of special IM modules

if [ -e ~/.minecraft/launcher.jar ]; then
exec java -jar ~/.minecraft/launcher.jar $@
exec java -jar /usr/share/minecraft/Minecraft.jar $@

What error did you get, or what problem are you encountering? It's not clear at which point you're having issues, so it's hard to say what you should do.

This package seemed to install fine, but I've now got a 'corrupt' display in Arch itself (after quitting minecraft), even after rebooting, neither uninstalling this package helped. Display ok before logging in, and in a tty1.

Should add
to prevent the jar form extracting.

Sorry about the delay with updating the package. I set ttf-font and libxtst as dependencies. I also updated the LICENSE that was included by the current EULA for minecraft.

If you change the Icon line in your desktop file to:


Icon themes can customize the icon. ;)

I second dumbhat's observation. I had to install libxtst separately before minecraft would run on a fresh Arch install.

Think you'll need to add libxtst to the list of dependencies - wouldn't install on a fresh system without it.
