Thank @mrxx. Cheers

ector, it is always a good idea to be sceptical of AUR packages generally (after all, anyone can submit them) and especially if a PKGBUILD wants to execute an external shell file.

Here, the PKGBUILD is doing the same as you would do manually, it executes the installer provided as a shell script from the BiglyBT developers. If you do not trust them, download the installer yourself from their homepage and inspect it before installing this package.

Wow. I thought that maybe this could be improved so I deleted the link to and then restarted BiglyBT. BiglyBT remade the instant I opened it. The file is different than the that was already on it, ie. different sum. It appears that was corrupt. If anyone else has the problem then rename that file so BiglyBT can remake the file.

Thanks mrxx. Got it working. When I saw your post the first thing I thought of is that Manjaro didn't offer openjdk 14. I had 13 as the default because that was the highest version I had. I installed jdk 14 from the AUR and set it as default but I get the exact same error. Maybe its an Arch vs. Manjaro thing going on here. So I then uninstalled jdk 14 since that wasn't it. Then I noticed that is actually on my computer and biglybt is loading it. I left out a part of the error message because I had to type it in. Something about a PowerPC library was not compatible with an AMD platform. So I renamed the file to and made a link from to This last part fixed it. Your post helped immensely. Thanks again.

centqwerG7890FCT, on my machines it starts like this:

Starting BiglyBT...

Suitable java version found [java = openjdk 14.0.1 2020-04-14]

Using swt/swt-x86_64.jar v4.924

Maybe you're using an incompatible java package.

Use "archlinux-java" to fix your java environment or select a different one (I've installed jre-openjdk).

Can't launch. I get the following errors: GUI could not be loaded. java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: Could not find SWT library. Reasons: no swt-gtk-4934r5 in java.library.path [/opt/biglybt] no swt-gtk in java.library.path [/opt/biglybt] ~/.swtlib/linux/x86_64/ Can't load library: ...

Thanks, eschwartz and SolarAquarion.

A fake homedir is created below $srcdir now and the installer writes everything into it.

eschwartz commented on 2020-03-18 21:53

Can't you trick the installer into writing those files into the $srcdir by faking the $HOME?
