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

Latest update seems to have broken for me.

/usr/lib/multimc5/MultiMC5: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

@RX14: I took a look at the ~/.multimc5 directory on my computer, and I *think* that the proper location for many of its files are $XDG_DATA_HOME. It does have config files, but the bulk of the files *after the first use* are data files.

So I have modified it to use ${XDG_DATA_HOME}/multimc5, ${HOME}/.local/share/multimc5, or ${HOME}/.multimc5. It can be overridden. The launch script now takes arguments. First argument is the data directory. Second argument is the name that you want to use. The script should also migrate data.

Using XDG_CONFIG_HOME for the CONFIG_DIR makes the folder really messy, you shoul either use XDG_CONFIG_HOME/multimc5 or ~/.multimc5. I prefer the latter.
