On attempting to launch version 1.0, Minecraft Launcher throws an exit code 0 and says it couldn't launch, while the terminal shows this error. I am using the default apt package and I have Java 8 (non headed) installed.
[1019/220003.727047:WARNING:x11_util.cc(1349)] X error received: serial 1135, error_code 3 (BadWindo
w (invalid Window parameter)), request_code 4, minor_code 0 (X_DestroyWindow)
EDIT: This works if you set the Java runtime to something else, but the error code should likely be more descriptive
