@jpegxguy no problem :)

Ah, fair enough. Thanks for the link

@jpegxguy no, that only happens with replaces (which would indeed be the desired effect here). However, the arch wiki recommends using provides and conflicts instead of replaces when uploading to the AUR (check the link on my previous comment, it was broken but I've fixed it now).

@IslandC0der Does provides do the thing where if I install minecraft-launcher, it will prompt for the deletion of the beta package?

IslandC0der commented on 2021-03-01 17:47

@jpegxguy unfortunately, replaces doesn't work with the AUR, provides would have to be used instead.

Ok if it's not necessary anymore, I think you put the beta package in the replaces array in minecraft-launcher. Not 100% sure but I think it's so

petr commented on 2021-03-01 17:31

This package is no longer necessary.

The launcher now manages its own updates at runtime using the same mechanism as the Windows and macOS version.

Please switch to minecraft-launcher instead.

That's true. I removed gconf with -Rdd and the launcher works perfectly

IslandC0der commented on 2020-06-29 22:14

Hi, could you please remove the gconf dependency? It's no longer required.

If you're going to be lifting the jre version requirement, I think it should be >= 8 because that's the minimum for later versions. I guess you're kind of fed up with the varying configurations, huh? :P
