I don't know where people keep getting this from, but please stop flagging the package out of date with links to old release announcements from a year ago. 0.6.11, from 2020-03-29, is the latest release as of right now.

just a friendly reminder even though this installs packages of jdk < 12 it will still attempt to use the default one which may be set to 12 like in my case.

You need to use sudo archlinux-java status and sudo archlinux-java set java-11-openjdk to figure out what you have and set something lower than 12 as default before attempting to install.

Installation failed. I'm getting the same issue @Aurelio experienced two years ago--

"No CMAKE_Java_COMPILER could be found.

Tell CMake where to find the compiler by setting either the environment variable "JAVA_COMPILER" or the CMake cache entry CMAKE_Java_COMPILER to the full path to the compiler, or to the compiler name if it is in the PATH."

Tested with pacaur and yaourt. Not sure how to solve this issue. Any help?

I adopted this package and manually applied the Qt5.11 patches from the github issues (MultiMC5#2304, quazip#1). Let me know if there's any other problem

Can't compile with Qt 5.11 due to the removal of the deprecated qt5_use_modules. These patches work on the current version, and are based on the fixes in

I had hoped that I fixed it with:

makedepends=('java-environment>=8' 'java-environment<10')

Doesn't look like it though. It looks like it just makes certain that you have it installed. I might try erroring out if java >= 10 before build sometime and print an error message on the next update.

At first I have exactly the same problem like @SuperGeniusZeb.

My Enviroment:

archlinux-java status

Available Java environments:


java-10-openjdk (default)


But it worked with the tip from @ender4 (change the cmake line).

This package does not install properly when OpenJDK 10 is being used. (It worked fine with OpenJDK 9, if I remember correctly.)

Here is the log for when I tried to install the package:

@Derriick: Since Minecraft is not working on your setup without xorg-xrandr, and Minecraft is what MultiMC is for, I'm moving xorg-xrandr to the depends array.

Thanks for the pastebin. New version should be up now.

EDIT: Minecraft is core functionality for MultiMC -- if it doesn't run, then MultiMC is not running as intended.

@vorpalblade: Thanks for your answer. I just confirm that this problem occurs when I try to run vanilla minecraft (1.12.2 and 1.11.2, without and with optifine), maybe because of my setup (wayland + sway).

I post here the bug report in case you still want to see it:

However, I understand xorg-xrandr can't be set as required, as multimc doesn't need it directly to run.

vorpalblade commented on 2018-02-10 03:51

@Derriick: xorg-xrandr is optional -- I have run vanilla minecraft without it before.

That said, making xorg-xrandr mandatory isn't a bad idea, but I did specify xorg-xrandr as something that may be required for some modpacks. This fits with the wiki model for dependencies[1].

Even though it isn't required, I would still highly recommend xorg-xrandr. But xorg-xrandr isn't absolutely required for Minecraft to run, so I'll leave it as an optdepend.

I may at some point try to nail down what, exactly, requires xorg-xrandr in modpacks, but it isn't high on my priority list right now. TBH, I kind of suspect Minecraft Forge. Either that, or one of the various "make Minecraft faster" mods.


Derriick commented on 2018-02-10 02:26

For Wayland users, xorg-xrandr (which is indicated as "optional") is necessary. I think it's automatically installed for all Xorg users.

Could you add it as a required dependency (like in minecraft package), to avoid future users any issues ?
