Does the gnome theme properly install for anyone else? On my installation the gnome theme was not working.

@pizzaman Thanks for incorporating the changes!

@txtsd Thanks for the suggestions.

@pizzaman please incorporate @jjoshau's changes to the script

And also make it so that charles uses $XDG_CONFIG_HOME by default instead of ~/ for configuration storage

Everytime i start charles, it tries to touch a file named '^-' in my home directory.

this was annoying me as well; after digging in, it's happening in the startup script /usr/bin/charles

hash java 2>^- || { echo >&2 "Charles couldn't start: java not found. Please install java to use Charles."; exit 1; }

removing 2>^- did the trick, for me

On Manjaro I got:

Error: A JNI error has occurred, please check your installation and try again Exception in thread "main" java.lang.UnsupportedClassVersionError: com/xk72/charles/gui/MainWithClassLoader has been compiled by a more recent version of the Java Runtime (class file version 53.0), this version of the Java Runtime only recognizes class file versions up to 52.0

Edit: oke, that was a noob question, but for others, which might stumble across the same issue:

Next to JRE-8 I installed JRE-14 and made that default.

sudo pacman -S jre-openjdk

List which are installed:

archlinux-java status

Set the default:

sudo archlinux-java set java-14-openjdk

@D3SOX What problems are you having? AFAIK this package works well.

For everyone who also has problems with this package I created another package which is built using the deb package This is a bit larger because it includes the JDK provided by Charles but therefore the package itself does not need the Java dependency
