Do you get the menus when using other WMs? Have you also tried using the "Latest build" instead of the "Life-line"? I'm using the "Latest build" with Java 13 and it works fine here.

I can't get any of the dropdown menus (File, Edit, View etc) to open. Do I need some other package? I am running bspwm and I set Fiji to floating mode.

Sure, no problem. Thanks.

Thanks, Jacopo. PKGBUILD had been updated. I don't use ImageJ/Fiji anymore and don't plan to support it. Would you like to be a maintainer?

Minor improvement to automatically set pkgver. I'm not quite sure how a patch can be submitted here. Cheers Jacopo

In my case, for getting rid of unnecessary "cannot update" messages, it is not enough to get rid of "plugins/Fiji_Updater.jar", but also of "jars/imagej-updater-0.7.8.jar". Probably we could use a glob to avoid forgetting to change the jar version.

Thank you a lot!! I should have locked at the PKGBUILD before. I uncommented the latest source and worked flawlesly!!
Best, Jose.

This package wasn't supposed to be "updatable" - just latest lifeline version. `Fiji_Updater.jar` was removed during makepkg run (see PKGBUILD source,

If you would like to use latest Fiji, there are two ways:
1. Edit the PKGBUILD and change source to latest build (I intentionally left it in commented section) and reinstall the package. Also you could change package version to download date, so new lifeline release, which can be outdated relatively to your current installation, won't be bothering you.
2. Just unpack and use vanilla archive from somewhere in $HOME directory.

Cheers, Eugene.

Thanks for the package.
I have one problem tough. I needed to update the bioformats plugin and so started imagej as root. After the update fiji won't start anymore as a regular user with the following warning:

"Could not move /opt/fiji/update/scripts/Miji.m to /opt/fiji/scripts/Miji.m: Permission denied"

Regards, jose.
