I have just updated this package to version 0.5.1.

There was NOT a bump to the version in the MultiMC repository even though there was a release.

The version number is under application/CMakeLists.txt for those who are wondering.

That has solved it. Thanks muchly, vorpalblade.

I think I've fixed it now.
I don't know why it didn't happen to me when I was testing. Maybe there was a leftover library or something?

It should work now though.

This doesn't seem to want to run for me since the 0.5.0 update:

Make sure you have a working java-jdk.
You can check the status with:
$ archlinux-java status

And to change it:
$ archlinux-java set java-8-jdk

I just made a "new" install of Arch Linux by doing

# pacstrap $(pwd) base base-devel
# arch-chroot $(pwd)
## set up username/password here
# systemd-nspawn -bD $(pwd)

$ curl -O $(yaourt_url)
$ curl -O $(package-query_url)

# Make the packages with makepkg -si...

$ yaourt -Syua multimc5

It did not error out for me.

Do you have base-devel installed?

I am getting the following error while installing the package with yaourt:

The packaged script for determining config storage location does not forward command line arguments to the multimc application, suggest adding "$@" to the multimc launch line, and removing the "$1" manual directory definition. MultiMC5 supports launching instances from the command line now, which is nice for shortcuts, but the current state of this script does not allow its use.

Fixed with 0.4.10
