Ok this is still getting flagged as out of date so I'll explain it again: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

You can't send mouse events to services running under systemd, and minecraft-server does not respond to signals as expected.

screen gets around this issue (though I would have preferred to use tmux, screen still gets the job done).

BTW: I assume you're talking about minecraft-server.

Can you add (and run the service under) a user "minecraft"?

It's typically good practice to have these things run under their own specifically privileged user.

Also, why the use of screen for the service file? Can't you run the jar directly and log to journald?

@Det: Yes, but this package only installs the launcher, which actually downloads the versioned game data.

Det commented on 2014-10-12 19:02

Doesn't the game have an actual version?

Please change the dependency on ttf-dejavu to ttf-font. It's provided by several font packages including ttf-dejavu and from my limited testing the game works fine with any of them.

Does this really require ttf-dejavu? Wouldn't ttf-font, which is provided by several font packages including ttf-dejavu, suffice?

Could you please change the Icon line in the .desktop file to
This way alternative icons are considered automatically.

Could you please put the _JAVA_OPTIONS line in the minecraft launcher script?

_JAVA_OPTIONS='-Dawt.useSystemAAFontSettings=gasp -Dswing.aatext=true -Dawt.useSystemAAFontSettings=gasp -Dsun.java2d.xrender=true' exec java -jar /usr/share/minecraft/Minecraft.jar $@

@Brottweiler - Your solution seems to only work when launched from terminal. Otherwise the text is garbled...

@MLeerkotte, I think that is an issue with the latest OpenJDK. Try put this in your .zshrc/.bashrc:

export _JAVA_OPTIONS='-Dawt.useSystemAAFontSettings=gasp -Dswing.aatext=true -Dawt.useSystemAAFontSettings=gasp -Dsun.java2d.xrender=true'

the log out from your system (quit Xorg, logout) then relogin.
