I am no longer able to maintain this package since I will lose access to the service soon. Anyone please feel free to take over.

Is there a problem with the newest version or is the maintainer just too busy to upgrade?

Current upstream version appears to require Oracle jre8. Nothing we can do about that - the software is closed source. I will however change the dependency from jre (now 9) to jre8 to fix the installation problem.

Since java 9, the script doesn't work anymore. And unfortunately it seems like the software doesn't run with java 9 at all.

No worries, my mistake. The idea was to get rid of the hard dependency on oracle jre 8 so one could try other oracle java versions. I reverted the dependency and RUN_CMD so this app will always launch with oracle jre regardless of archlinux-java default.

@wilga, thank you for changing it, but I was unaware that oracles jre/jdk was mandatory.

I guess I will have to ask you to revert the changes, since I don't see any sane solution that will not result in either having you work around this or having other users of the package suffer from it.

I will just work around the issues I have for myself, I guess that would be way easier for everybody involved.
The only problem I had was, that I did not want to download the jre, when I already have the jdk installed, but that is way easier to fix for me, than others having to work around this.

I'm sorry for the inconvenience!

Why did you change the RUN_CMD? Now it executes with java-8-openjdk which is my default archlinux-java, and an error comes up that it's not compatible with openjdk.

What should I do now to launch it with oracle jre?

1. changed to java-runtime - but the app still requires oracle jre to run. it does a runtime check and exits with an error if you're using openjdk. can't fix this since it is closed source.
2. done

I have two requests:

1. change jre dependency to java-runtime-common
2. change the patch file to RUN_CMD=/usr/bin/java …

thank you!

A while ago I used Fedora with Gnome 3, where I could use bwsyncandshare through their rpm-package.
Now on arch also with Gnome 3 I was happy to find this package, but it doesn't seem to integrate as fine.
There's a constant syncing-icon on the top left and a black square in the legacy icon bar. I guess there's not much to be done by users as it uses gtk2 or am I wrong there?
I'm relatively new to Arch including makepkg and the AUR and want to learn about how everything works and how I can contribute. Can you please describe how you created this package or which documentation you used to create it?
