@Derriick: Since Minecraft is not working on your setup without xorg-xrandr, and Minecraft is what MultiMC is for, I'm moving xorg-xrandr to the depends array.

Thanks for the pastebin. New version should be up now.

EDIT: Minecraft is core functionality for MultiMC -- if it doesn't run, then MultiMC is not running as intended.

@vorpalblade: Thanks for your answer. I just confirm that this problem occurs when I try to run vanilla minecraft (1.12.2 and 1.11.2, without and with optifine), maybe because of my setup (wayland + sway).

I post here the bug report in case you still want to see it:

However, I understand xorg-xrandr can't be set as required, as multimc doesn't need it directly to run.

@Derriick: xorg-xrandr is optional -- I have run vanilla minecraft without it before.

That said, making xorg-xrandr mandatory isn't a bad idea, but I did specify xorg-xrandr as something that may be required for some modpacks. This fits with the wiki model for dependencies[1].

Even though it isn't required, I would still highly recommend xorg-xrandr. But xorg-xrandr isn't absolutely required for Minecraft to run, so I'll leave it as an optdepend.

I may at some point try to nail down what, exactly, requires xorg-xrandr in modpacks, but it isn't high on my priority list right now. TBH, I kind of suspect Minecraft Forge. Either that, or one of the various "make Minecraft faster" mods.

For Wayland users, xorg-xrandr (which is indicated as "optional") is necessary. I think it's automatically installed for all Xorg users.

Could you add it as a required dependency (like in minecraft package), to avoid future users any issues ?

@JuniorJPDJ Thanks -- I intended to increase pkgrel, not pkgver.

There is no tag for 0.6.2, only 0.6.1

I was able to compile it with openjdk-9 installed by changing the cmake line of the install script to include "-DJAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/java-8-openjdk"

@luso58: Try this:

archlinux-java set java-8-openjdk/jre

from (you may need to do "archlinux-java status" first to see available environments)

I have openJDK 7, 8 and 9 installed on my system, and multimc refuses to build, because of incompatibility with java 9.

I was running Ubuntu for awhile, and the official client appears to drop data into ~/.local/share/multimc instead of ~/.local/share/multimc5

The 0.5.1-4 version ONLY has this change.

Everything else remains the same.

For those using Ubuntu and the official multimc client this will (hopefully) reduce the duplication in their home directories.

For those that want to run multimc with the previous default directory, use: [PREVIOUS_DATA_DIR]
