I don't know where people keep getting this from, but please stop flagging the package out of date with links to old release announcements from a year ago. 0.6.11, from 2020-03-29, is the latest release as of right now.

just a friendly reminder even though this installs packages of jdk < 12 it will still attempt to use the default one which may be set to 12 like in my case.

You need to use sudo archlinux-java status and sudo archlinux-java set java-11-openjdk to figure out what you have and set something lower than 12 as default before attempting to install.

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.
