hello @Rishi_Pandey ...

Let’s tackle that GLFW error 65543 in Minecraft. This issue often occurs when trying to load Minecraft with Optifine in version 1.17.1. The cause is that this Optifine version requires OpenGL 4.3 to create a context, specifically called “GLXBadFBConfig.” Fortunately, there’s a workaround you can try:

  1. Open your terminal (you can use Ctrl+Alt+T).
  2. Temporarily override the OpenGL version variable by running this command: MESA_GL_VERSION_OVERRIDE=4.3
  3. Now run Minecraft using the original launcher:
    MESA_GL_VERSION_OVERRIDE=4.3 minecraft-launcher
  4. If that doesn’t work, navigate to the directory where your Minecraft executable is located and use:
    MESA_GL_VERSION_OVERRIDE=4.3 (your minecraft executable)
  5. For example, if your Minecraft executable is a .jar file:
    MESA_GL_VERSION_OVERRIDE=4.3 java -jar (your minecraft executable)
  6. Adjust the command based on your specific setup.


Give this a shot, and hopefully, it resolves the issue for you!


hope this helps...
