Affects Version/s: 2.2.3123 (Linux)
Fix Version/s: None
Component/s: Minecraft Launcher
just now started the launcher, it downloaded and installed update files, and now it won’t start anymore. when run from the terminal, the only output is:
MessageBox(Minecraft Launcher): Couldn't load launcher core from /home/[username]/.minecraft/launcher/liblauncher.so: LoadErrorNotPresent
(the file liblauncher.so exists at that path and its timestamp fits the update procedure)
the date on launcher_log.txt gets updated, but file content remains old. (CORRECTION: the logfile indeed gets updated and shows the error pointed out by brian carlson below.) launcher_cef_log.txt remains untouched.
tried: downloaded minecraft.deb (version 928) and installed it. didn’t change anything.
uninstalled the minecraft launcher, renamed ~/.minecraft, reinstalled. same effect.
