@JohnMaguire That can be fixed by explicitly using java8:

JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/java-8-openjdk/jre charles

I was coming here to ask if that can be specified inside the /usr/bin/charles script?

@kalbasit: Thanks, I spent a couple of minutes yesterday trying to figure it out, but not getting it done. This makes things a lot easier. I push the working version once I'm back at my Arch Linux PC

@badboy here's the PKGBUILD diff to fix the installation:

@badboy Package fails to build for me with the 4.2.5-1 update. The icons directory have a new structure in 4.2.5.

As a result, I'm getting this this error at package():

install: cannot stat '/home/user/aur/charles/src/charles/icon/charles_icon16.png': No such file or directory

@kamazee @badboy no problem, I'm on it. I've added it and it will be in the 4.2 beta which should be out early next week!

@kamazee: Could you propose that upstream? I'd like to avoid modifications to the shipped files to minimize maintenance work on my side.

kamazee commented on 2017-08-03 10:11

Could you add line "StartupWMClass=com-xk72-charles-gui-MainWithClassLoader" into .desktop file? This is how a window can be traced back to .desktop entry that launches it; it makes desktop environment experience a bit nicer: for example, this allows charles window to be properly moved using Gnome Auto Move Windows plugin; I guess the same is used to highlight a pinned entry in a task bar.

badboy commented on 2017-05-15 20:23

Oh, I see. I'll fix that tomorrow

The provided .desktop file is referencing the icon incorrectly:


Please provide just the icon name without path and extension here.
