Ok this is still getting flagged as out of date so I'll explain it again:

This package is the official stable package you get when you go through the Minecraft website, which still points to ""

If you want the new launcher check the package that is maintained by Mojang themselves.

And if you want this package to be the new launcher, just ask Mojang why 2.x is not deemed stable yet and if it is if they could update their links on the official website.

I trust that in time I will be able to update this package to the latest launcher but right now it will stay on this version.

Thank you for your understanding.

@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

@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

yukixz commented on 2016-09-08 14:37

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

mad-murdock commented on 2016-03-13 09:10

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.
