On Arch, running MC Pi would get an error, say it can't find the two files libpng12.so.0 and libSDL-1.2.so.0.

So, I used the following commands...

sudo pacman -S sdl
yaourt -S libpng12

...to install the libraries.

Then I got another error "failed to open vchiq instance", and I found a solution at there: http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=66&t=7104&start=25

Finally, it just opened a black window: http://i.stack.imgur.com/7Tf6F.png


I'm not sure exactly how you performed the installation process, but take a look at this tutorial (for both Raspbian and Arch Linux):

  1. Start the graphical interface:

    $ startx
  2. Download Minecraft:

    $ wget -c https://s3.amazonaws.com/assets.minecraft.net/pi/minecraft-pi-0.1.1.tar.gz
  3. Extract the archive and cd into the extracted directory:

    $ tar -zxvf minecraft-pi-0.1.1.tar.gz <br>
    $ cd mcpi
  4. Run Minecraft on your Raspberry Pi:

    $ ./minecraft-pi
  • I downloaded the image file from archlinuxarm.org and use "dd" to write it into my sdcard.The game running process is the same as you written above – wenLiangcan Aug 6 '13 at 10:27
  • Try to compile it yourself with these steps and see if you can get it to work. – syb0rg Aug 6 '13 at 14:59
  • Do you mean compile Arch myself ? I don't know how to do this. – wenLiangcan Aug 7 '13 at 3:17
  • I edited the question. Follow the instructions from the as closely as possible. – syb0rg Aug 7 '13 at 3:36
