For updates please use the "Flag package out-of-date" button. Do not bother developers on GitHub for install issues. At least one developer have indicated that they are unwilling to work with downstream packagers that do not use their update script.

DO NOT HARASS THE DEVELOPERS. Please abide by the AUR COC. This is a package, not a battlefield. No need to be childish about this.

I highly recommend that people who enjoy using the AUR and want to support a project that follows it's guidelines move to polymc.

FULL DISCLOSURE: I totally respect the developers of MultiMC for the project they have created and built over time, as well as the maintainer of this AUR package who continues to update it after the drama. Just thought I'd recommend alternatives for those looking :)

So, basically, deleting this folder will completely remove everything related to multimc from my system? If so, then great, thank you so much! I was worried it actually installed some of the dependencies outside of home folder.

shuangyupian commented on 2022-01-15 18:39 (UTC)

ewbte, delete any binaries and shared objects in ~/.local/share/multimc. Jar files, you're mostly own your own. Everything is mixed with application data so it's hard to figure out which is which.

I am sorry if I am asking in wrong place, but someone mentioned that previous version of this package did install dependencies the wrong way, and so it was impossible to remove it using package manager, can anyone explain me how to find them manually and delete if so? Thank you.

@peterix, there are no trolls here. Just one mighty, insufferable cretin.

@shuangyupian, please do not train users to use the OOD flagging feature to detail issues. They should just use the comments section here. :)

Now that multimc-native has been merged to multimc-bin, it would be good to update the description to remove the reference to the non-native installers.

You usurped control over the packages along with your troll friends. That's about it.

Peterix said he no longer wanted to maintain an AUR package which seems like abandoning it to me.

He could have re-submitted the package with the changes that needed to be made but he said he would no longer support the AUR.

shuangyupian commented on 2021-12-14 16:26 (UTC)

Since peterix is no longer willing to maintain multimc-bin, I request to have this package renamed to multimc-bin to better reflect what it is.

None of the loose files directly in this repo are proprietary. The desktop file is reused from multimc5, the svg is a CC BY-NC-SA 4.0 reproduction from surfn, and the shell wrapper is written by me. We are using the official build binaries so the build fingerprint is same.

https://lists.archlinux.org/pipermail/aur-requests/2021-December/ Not exactly abandoned

Looks like the main developer has also said that "anything from the AUR is not supported here from now on", and might implement fingerprinting into their Discord server's bot, making support there impossible as well.

Will do!

Looks like upstream doesn't care about making proper releases. They've suggested using an alternative link here: https://github.com/MultiMC/Launcher/issues/4318#issuecomment-988614607

peterix commented on 2021-12-04 01:40 (UTC)

This breaks the updater and is entirely pointless. Please don't do this.

Thanks for the package! I'm just having an error when installing it remotely:

==> Starting pkgver()...
qt.qpa.xcb: could not connect to display 
qt.qpa.plugin: Could not load the Qt platform plugin "xcb" in "" even though it was found.
This application failed to start because no Qt platform plugin could be initialized. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem.

EDIT: Ran DISPLAY=:0 yay -S multimc-native and it worked nicely. Thanks again :)
