Apparently libpng12 is no longer a dependency:

Jan. 27 2019 ver. 3.4.6 Removed dependency of the Linux version on libpng12.so.0.

And tested against the last executable:

$ ldd /opt/vesta/VESTA linux-vdso.so.1 (0x00007ffea73b7000) libm.so.6 => /usr/lib/libm.so.6 (0x00007f19f5aa0000) libstdc++.so.6 => /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6 (0x00007f19f5910000) libgcc_s.so.1 => /usr/lib/libgcc_s.so.1 (0x00007f19f58f6000) libpthread.so.0 => /usr/lib/libpthread.so.0 (0x00007f19f58d5000) libc.so.6 => /usr/lib/libc.so.6 (0x00007f19f5710000) /lib64/ld-linux-x86-64.so.2 => /usr/lib64/ld-linux-x86-64.so.2 (0x00007f19f5c4c000) libdl.so.2 => /usr/lib/libdl.so.2 (0x00007f19f570b000)

how about create a symbolic link as /usr/bin/VESTA -> /opt/VESTA/VESTA ? the default VESTA script will cause some warning.

Running VESTA on i3 I got an error:

The program 'VESTA-gui' received an X Window System error. This probably reflects a bug in the program. The error was 'BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation)'. (Details: serial 189 error_code 2 request_code 154 minor_code 24) (Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously; that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it. To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)

Any idea what could be thereason?

you need to use urls like this http://jp-minerals.org/vesta/archives/3.4.2/VESTA-i686.tar.bz2, because current urls are version-insafe

Looks like the md5sums are out of date. Working ones:
md5sums=('25d5c67b4180e227aa3fe2727119a68a'
'fdd7040720e4b58a26caa7db09669acf'
'caabe467168af9e44cf380af1abfe280')
md5sums_i686=('738184eefc7046bba53b38476b0ee711')
md5sums_x86_64=('f8e630b34e6588c45f3df8cf39d528ef')

@jat255 thanks, I was a silly mistake. It's. already corrected.

The launch script /usr/bin/VESTA does not work for loading files from the command line (and as a result, from a .desktop launcher) because it does not pass the filename to the executable (/opt/VESTA/VESTA). Adding "$*" to the bash script in /usr/bin fixes this issue.
