Minecraft requires OpenJDK 8 to run now...or I should say it didn't work with 7 for me and installing 8 fixed it.

You're not actually using that MC_VERSION_URL variable in /usr/bin/minecraft. :)

BombStrike commented on 2017-01-30 02:09

Ok pushed a new version that should fix things, expect a launcher download.

Also added a MC_FORCE_UPDATE environment variable that can be set to force a launcher update (but shouldn't be necessary).

For some weird reason if we use the launcher directly from the .minecraft folder it will never update.

I'm adding a small mechanism to automatically redownload the launcher when the game itself gets updated and will push it soon.

In the meantime run "exec java -jar /usr/share/minecraft/Minecraft.jar" manually to force an update

Can't start with client version 1.11.2. Gives following error:
[16:16:21 ERROR]: An update to your launcher is available and is required to play 1.11.2. Please restart your launcher.

Flagged package as out-of-date :-)

@s123 This is only the launcher... when you run it, the launcher will download the version you want to use.

Will the recent version be available? I want to play singleplayer maps, few of them require at least 1.7.7 and one 1.10.4...

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.

BombStrike commented on 2016-09-15 02:20

@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
