GTKLookAndFeel Issue

In reference to the following error:

java.lang.Error: Cannot load
    at javax.swing.UIManager.initializeDefaultLAF(
    at javax.swing.UIManager.initialize(
    at javax.swing.UIManager.maybeInitialize(
    at javax.swing.UIManager.getLookAndFeel(

After some research, this appears to be a problem in energia itself that was fixed in the arduino ide, which energia is derived from. For reasons unknown to me, that fix has not been propagated. The energia issue for this is still open and not assigned on github (

To work around this problem, as root, edit the 'energia' script located in /opt/energia/, change line 28 from this:


To this:


Once a fix is available, I will incorporate it here.

When installing I get the following warning:

xdg-icon-resource: file '/usr/share/pixmaps/energia_16.png' does not exist

But no incidence on running the software. The .desktop file has the correct icon once installed.

you need to change line number 50
ln -sf /usr/lib/ "$pkgdir/opt/energia/lib/"
ln -sf /usr/lib/ "$pkgdir/opt/energia/lib/"

Thanks @potatoe, few issues with the new build so I'll try and work them out and get them pushed by the end of today.

Thanks for the heads up. New package up now!

Only tested on x64 though (as per usual).

error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files)
energia: /etc/tmpfiles.d/legacy.conf exists in filesystem

pacman -Qo says no package owns this file, but the file itself claims it is part of systemd. Why is Energia trying to overwrite this file?

My apologies, fixing the URLs now. I'll upload after testing :)
