Sound works (as of writing) with JDK/JRE 11.

tealeaf commented on 2019-01-20 21:06

Does anyone have working sound? If so, does anyone have advice on the best JDK/JRE to use with this?

algebro commented on 2018-04-21 14:32

Does this package resolve the issue with missing stone clicks? I just tried the raw jar from the KGS website and I’m not getting any sound.

edit: Just got around to testing this, looks like the sound works with this package over just running the raw jar. Thanks!

If like me you get the error "CGoban : Unsupported major.minor version 52.0", this means your java machine is older than the java version used to compile cgoban (here JSE 8, if you get 53, its for JSE 9).
To solve the problem just install jdk8-openjdk (or equivalent) and use archlinux-java ( to switch to the right JVM et voilà :)

It would probably be good to only depends on a version of java above 8, but i'm not sure it it is possible to specify it in the package (the wiki only speaks about vendors)

This installes cgoban3-edit.desktop to

This should probably be:

Compare line 30 of the PKGBUILD to line 29.

Where the cache is depends on what AUR helper you're using, if any.

I think the simplest way is to just download and extract the snapshot, and run
makepkg --syncdeps --install

I ran pacman -Scc but I still get error with validity check.
What should I do?

dysphoria commented on 2017-03-16 21:07

For users having trouble with validity check, try cleaning your AUR helper's cache; you might have the old .jar file.

If all things fail, try manually building:
Download and extract the snapshot, and run
makepkg --syncdeps --install
on the same folder as the PKGBUILD.
If installed successfully, you can delete the folder afterwards.

Got errors building this package today. makepkg automatically starts extracting the jre file and then bsdtar fails with a "Can't replace existing directory with non-directory" (not quite sure why).

Adding the following line after the "source=(...)" section fixed the problem for me and probably makes sense, since the jar file is only going to be copied over anyway:

Hi everyone,

thank you for helping me out on maintaining this package. Lately I did not have enough time to rebuild, which means it's time for me to pass it to someone else.

Cheers !
