      To make "Skins" work in the first place, I had to softlink to Chrome's "swiftshader" like so:

       

      $ ls -l /opt/minecraft-launcher
      total 182992

      $

       

      So, if that needs to point somewhere else, let me know. I created the softlink based on error messages and some hints I found online. I don't recall the details...

       

      This worked in a previous version of the Launcher, though I'm unsure which versions exactly...
