Forget AUR comments, I was thinking of this post:

Make a script with the following in it and use that script to launch the game.

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH="/opt/java/jre/lib/amd64"
java -Xmx1024M -Xms512M -cp minecraft.jar net.minecraft.LauncherFrame

I occasionally do have focus problems with the login text entry fields, but
that's a different issue with LWJGL, if I remember correctly. As a workaround,
click into the fields FAST and you'll get focus to enter your credentials. ;)
This should be fixable by replacing the bundled LWJGL with a more current
version. The web knows how.
