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.

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

Marking out of date since it's been in unbuildable state for more than a week and to attract maintainer's attention.

The source-urls are wrong!

Hi truh,

I think libusb-compat must have been a dependency I just added when looking at the arduino PKGBUILD, I assumed they'd have the same deps, but it looks like it's avrdude that depends on libusb-compat so I'll remove that.

I'm also going to symblink the docs for you too.

I'll upload this all shortly

Would be nice if you would symlink /opt/energia/reference to /usr/share/doc/energia.

What is lib32-libusb-compat needed for on 64bit Systems? Seems to work fine without it.

Thanks for the fix, I'll upload that now.

The source-urls are 404. Apparently their download-directory is now called "downloads".

- source+=("$pkgname-$pkgver.tgz::")
+ source+=("$pkgname-$pkgver.tgz::")

- source+=('')
+ source+=('')
