I have the Minecraft launcher installed on a Debian Bullseye box and I can only ever play the most current version. To be specific, when I try to create a new installation, the dropdown menu shows available versions, including 1.18.2. After I select 1.18.2, it still shows 1.19.
Any ideas how to fix this? Many thanks in advance!
We’ve never used that launcher. My kids launch Minecraft from MultiMC. That may help…
Many thanks! Works beautifully!
Still, such a puzzling problem. I’ve installed the standard launcher for my kids on various computers and this is the only time I’ve seen this weird behavior. But MultiMC seems way better anyway!
MultiMC is pretty cool. My kids have multiple instances of Minecraft with all kinds of crazy mods.
I know I’m late but there was some classic developer ego issues with the MultiMC project which caused a community fork in PolyMC (GitHub - PolyMC/PolyMC: A custom launcher for Minecraft that allows you to easily manage multiple installations of Minecraft at once (Fork of MultiMC)).
Just putting that there for you.
Thanks for the link. I think my son is happy enough with MultiMC but if any issues crop up, I’ll give PolyMC a try!
I use PolyMC as a Flatpak, it works great. Plus it still allows me to use my old Mojang account while the official launcher insists I create a Microsoft account to keep playing.
