Apparently libpng12 is no longer a dependency:

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

And tested against the last executable:

$ ldd /opt/vesta/VESTA (0x00007ffea73b7000) => /usr/lib/ (0x00007f19f5aa0000) => /usr/lib/ (0x00007f19f5910000) => /usr/lib/ (0x00007f19f58f6000) => /usr/lib/ (0x00007f19f58d5000) => /usr/lib/ (0x00007f19f5710000) /lib64/ => /usr/lib64/ (0x00007f19f5c4c000) => /usr/lib/ (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, because current urls are version-insafe

Looks like the md5sums are out of date. Working ones:

@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.
