Not everyone uses or prefers openjdk, so this package depends on java-environment=17 instead.

jdk21 deprecates some jdk7 stuff which is required to make some older versions of minecraft to work, which is why prismlauncher currently requires jdk17.

While this promotes user choice, it also requires that users' systems have their default java environment set to any jdk17 via archlinux-java set $jdk_ver. Use archlinux-java status to see which java environments are installed, and change accordingly. Alternatively, just set the JAVA_HOME env var when installing like this:

JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/java-17-whicheverjdk yay prismlauncher

Yeah but since I have neither java 17 or 8 installed, I don't want to download 2 extra java runtimes that I won't use

I've been using java 20 for a while now, and haven't had any issues. Just let people use whatever java version they want (as prism launcher has a built in thing warning against using java versions higher than 17)

you can. as long as the jre/jdk is installed, you can select it in settings, regardless of what the package's dependent on

Please remove the dependency on java runtimes 17 and 8 because some people might not want those installed

17 is the only supported version of java for modern versions of mc. newer versions are known to cause a lot of issues, especially with mods. 8 is also required for old versions, but i guess less people use those than i thought - maybe i can make it an optional dep
