What about making it available with Java 1.8 instead of Java 1.7? It's fully working (I use Java 1.8 to play).

@BombStrike yep. With XIM env & fcitx, typing CJK in launcher is OK.

@yukixz back when I added those env variables the launcher didn't even allow you to type or do anything if iBus or similar was running, when I tried the current one everything seems to be working fine (though indeed it won't take the IM input) so no need to keep those

@BombStrike Sorry bro. IM support is only available for windows, but minecraft seems work normally with XIM env.

Updated package

* Remove IM override (thanks @yukixz)
* Use cached launcher when available (thanks @mad-murdock)
* Updated license to latest version

Minecraft support CJK and IM after v1.9.
Please remove `unset XMODIFIERS GTK_IM_MODULE QT_IM_MODULE` from `/usr/bin/minecraft`.

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.
