This package does not install properly when OpenJDK 10 is being used. (It worked fine with OpenJDK 9, if I remember correctly.)

Here is the log for when I tried to install the package:

@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.
