LibGDX project isn’t launching, it says Could not initialize class org.lwjgl.Sys

Whenever I try to launch a LibGDX project, the problem shown below keeps appearing:

I can’t for the life of me figure out the solution. At first, I tried reinstalling my JDK, but that wasn’t the issue at all. It wasn’t an issue before I switched to PopOS. Any help?

Answer

I found out the issue. You need to change the LWJGL api in build.gradle, dependencies to LWJGL3.

api "com.badlogicgames.gdx:gdx-backend-lwjgl:$gdxVersion"

to

api "com.badlogicgames.gdx:gdx-backend-lwjgl3:$gdxVersion"

In DesktopLauncher.java, change these

import com.badlogic.gdx.backends.lwjgl.LwjglApplication;
import com.badlogic.gdx.backends.lwjgl.LwjglApplicationConfiguration;

and

LwjglApplicationConfiguration config = new LwjglApplicationConfiguration();
new LwjglApplication(new MyGdxGame(), config);

to

import com.badlogic.gdx.backends.lwjgl3.Lwjgl3Application;
import com.badlogic.gdx.backends.lwjgl3.Lwjgl3ApplicationConfiguration;

and

Lwjgl3ApplicationConfiguration config = new Lwjgl3ApplicationConfiguration();
new Lwjgl3Application(new MyGdxGame(), config);
