I give up; peterix keeps "refactoring" the code and has effectively removed everything that's required to do a system install. From now on, I recommend that you either just build the "Launcher" directly from the git repo in your home dir, or simply not use the "Launcher" at all. Whatever you do, I recommend that you don't use the pre-compiled "multimc" binaries simply out of protest; upstream really does seem to want to handle multimc like a proprietary thing.

Java checks are failing because the binary now looks for JavaCheck jars in "${application-path}/jars/" which resolves to /usr/bin/jars/ when the jars are actually located at /usr/share/devlauncher/jars/.

A quick fix is to move the devlauncher binary to /usr/share/devlauncher/ and add a symlink to that in /usr/bin/

I hope an OSS fork gets made and we can all move to it, but as of right now this is the best package if you don't wish to support peterix and multimc, however I feel some things like the patreon button should be removed, since this isn't multimc after-all.

Also the java autodetect seems broken (?)

Now that debranding has been pushed to develop, this will no longer build as MultiMC, it will instead build as DevLauncher. Package name should probably change to reflect this. see: https://github.com/MultiMC/Launcher/blob/develop/notsecrets/README.md

They added a file to put the secret in, along with a description and link to register for one, if you'd like to register and put one in (or read a config file/env for users to provide their own)

ShayBox: Yeah, I really don't like the direction MultiMC is going. Nevertheless, I understand why it's going in this direction (with the MS stuff and all that,) but I'm definitely not impressed with how peterix has been handling all this. I'll be maintaining this package for as long as possible, and might be able to assist with an eventual fork (despite that I'm not exactly a programmer) if that's deemed to be necessary.

I see something similar to what happened with Visual Studio Code happening to MultiMC, the dev is de-branding the source code, making MultiMC a closed-source binary only program based on the unbranded source code, and hopefully the community forks that and rebrands similar to what VSCodium did.

Oh, sorry! There was quite a lot of activity around this package the past couple days/weeks and I got confused ;)

@xiretza: Thanks for the heads-up! It was actually removed by the previous maintainer (Cheru, who was the one that rewrote the PKGBUILD), but I totally missed that. Fixed in e082e61039c2

xiretza commented on 2021-09-11 14:24

When you rewrote the PKGBUILD, you removed the git makedepends, which is required for git sources.
