@ccorn: thanks, applied.

The runscript does not pass arguments, so you cannot open *.ggb files in a desktop environment. Fix:

@mar04: you're right, changed that.

Any reason why Java 8 is required? Seems to work fine for me with Java 13.

The package fails to download the source, i.e it's out of date.

@Morguldir: feel free to create an -svn package. Then I'll rename this one to -bin as well, but right now that isn't worth the hassle I think.

Why is this not made from source?

@updater1234: if you want to use 6.x, just install geogebra from community. This package is called geogebra-5 for a reason: quite a few people think that the new 6.x HTML5/electron/JS app is utter crap and would rather use the "classic" 5.x program.

updater1234 commented on 2018-11-02 14:38

geogebra-6 has been released. please update it.

Or even better: change the line "pkgver=5.0.486.0" in PKGBUILD to

pkgver=$(wget -q -O -)

This will always get the newest version, if this is possible.
