@paulodiovani, Interesting idea but git is also used to determine the version.

Please, download a tarball from github instead of clone. This way we avoid getting the repository history, which can increase drastically over time.

I removed the out-of-date flag since this is the git build and it always builds the latest version regardless of which version is shown for the package.

Unfortunately, this package is junk currently.

Error: Could not find or load main class Caused by: java.lang.ClassNotFoundException:

is the error I always get; attempting to launch from the included .desktop file results in the same.

Fortunately, the package bisq-bin works just fine. Don't waste your time with this package until it's updated.

@JZA, Bisq developers switch from JDK 8 to JDK 10 from what I can tell.

You will need to install JDK 10 in order to build this package. I tried to specify the JDK 10 for building without setting JDK 10 to default java runtime. I believe you will need to set your java runtime in order to run Bisq however. I recommend running archlinux-java set java-10-openjdk to make Java 10 default on your system if you can. This may effect other java applications on your system. For more information on Java see the wiki page:

I was also able to run export PATH="/usr/lib/jvm/java-10-openjdk/bin/:$PATH"; bisq-desktop while having Java 8 as my default.

I see. Thank you for the update @qKUqm3wtY4

@dmp1ce Thanks for adding a snap onto snapcraft!

I did go back and test the build again, but it's still broken. I posted the error on github:

EDIT: Install failed simply because I had jdk10 installed and it was trying to use that instead of jdk8 - it worked once I uninstalled jdk10.

There was some upstream changes which broke the build. The build should work now. Please report other issues.

I created a Snap for Bisq which is here:

I'll look into a flatpak as well.

The build fails. It has been 18 days since you posted that the package would be updated. If you aren't going to keep this updated, would you mind just creating a stable flatpak so that anyone can install it on any Linux distro without issue? Either way, I appreciate you and all of the other devs.
