Now the pkgfile is creating a 404 when it tries to download the greenfoot .jar file.

I apologize for the long time.

The developers of greenfoot permitted to join her 'mailing-list', unfortunately
I didn't got a notification about an update.

Okay, next time I'll check the Webpage myself!

Enjoy Greenfoot anyway ;)

This includes a script to download a file that no longer exists.

I successfully tested this package with openjdk6.

I don't know anything about the .install/mimetype stuff, because I don't use
a desktop environment.

Thanks for maintaining this package!

Sry, to make this so late!
Fixed the issue. Now uses $JAVA_HOME to find the javapath.

Should I add a .Install to make a MimeType? To enable the doubleclick on project.greenfoot → start Greenfoot, like under Windows?

The /usr/bin/greenfoot in this package only works with OpenJDK 7.
You should either adapt that script to support other JDKs (if greenfoot
supports them) or depend on OpenJDK 7.

Updated the packages to version 2.2.1.
Made it like the guys from the bluej package

I modified the package and such so that it's updated to the latest version -- 2.12 currently. You can download the Tarball from here:

It runs, but I don't know if it's done "correctly". Someone with more experience with PKGBUILDs should definitely check my work!

Greenfoot 2.0.0 has come out. It would be great if this could be updated.
