I got the same build error as klore when trying to build 1483. jihem's suggestion of downgrading to gradle 4.10.2 fixed the issue for me as well.

jihem: Downgrading gradle working, thank you

klore: I was able to fix this bug by downgrading the package gradle to 4.10.2.

I think the maintainer should replace the dependency gradle with gradle4.

I just tried to build the latest version (, and it went successfully until it stopped with this, using my aursync repo:

/home/tydynrain/.cache/aursync/freenet/PKGBUILD: line 79: /etc/profile.d/ No such file or directory

I made a .service file with a bit more hardening, in case you don't fully trust the software to be free of vulnerabilities (which is good practice, especially for network-facing daemons):

nope cant hurt, in fact i had to do that for the i2p package also. If this happens with other java apps you are probably better off just setting this in your bashrc

For those having the same problem as I did, here is a tip: If are having encoding errors while building WebOfTrust plugin like the one bellow

[javac] /tmp/yaourt-tmp-alkis/aur-freenet/src/plugin-WebOfTrust/test/plugins/WebOfTrust/ error: unmappable character (0xB2) for encoding US-ASCII [javac] final int trustCount = (identityCount*identityCount) / 5; // A complete graph would be identityCount?? trust values. [javac] ^ [javac] 10 errors [javac] 1 warning BUILD FAILED /tmp/yaourt-tmp-alkis/aur-freenet/src/plugin-WebOfTrust/build.xml:225: Compile failed; see the compiler error output for details.

The encoding of your java might be different from the file (as you can see, mine was US-ASCII instead of UTF8) So if you are having this problem, add the following line in the PKGBUILD in the prepare() function: export JAVA_TOOLS_OPTIONS=-Dfile.encoding=UTF8

Now it compiled without errors. Perhaps it is worth looking into adding it to the package, skydrome. I guess it can't hurt anyway.

thanks for notifying me, fixed
