The script /opt/areca/bin/ throws:
'No valid JRE found in /usr/java'
This is caused by the versioncheck in line 69.
Can be fixed by replacing the if with this if:
if [[ "$JAVA_IMPL" = "java" || "$JAVA_IMPL" = "openjdk" ]] ; then

shimi, you're right, I just checked it. The areca-bin package is the one which doesn't need swt, since it contains it, but this one needs it. Thanks for the heads-up.

For me Areca only runs if swt is installed. Removing the swt package causes this error when trying to run areca:

Installing swt makes it run fine.

I'm sure, Areca works without external swt libs.

Are you sure 'swt' should be put in makedepends ? I would put it in depends instead

jre7-openjdk 7.u71_2.5.3-1 introduces new bug (misfeature) to CipherInputStream which causes javax.crypto.BadPaddingException.
Bug is reported upstream, while waiting for workaround downgrade to jre7-openjdk 7.u65_2.5.2-3 solves problem.

New version of areca and the package is compiled from source now. That means, two new dependencies are needed for the build. The old style binary package lives on as areca-bin.

Mikaye, good point, I'll look into that. Maybe we could have two packages, areca compiled from source, and this one transferred to areca-bin?

Please don't use precompilated binaries since it can't be built on other architectures than i686 or x86_64 (Archlinux ARM for example)
