I was fed up with every update nuking my settings, so I made a script that copies the executable files into ~/.local/share/ipmiview and handles upgrades satisfiably. The setting files in your home directory are kept with that approach. The script is available in a Github gist[1]

Sorry for the delay, I've made that change. Let me know how it turns out! :)

Hi ifdog, I have same issue with File missing in KVM, and fixed it with adding this line


in the /usr/share/applications/ipmiview.desktop

I think, that when you launch the ipmiview from ipmiview.desktop it run ipmiview from

$ which ipmiview /usr/bin/ipmiview

with default path of executed binary(/usr/bin/) but in /usr/bin absent the iKVM files like iKVM and iKVM.jar. We need to change the working dir for application in ipmiview.desktop file, or add something in the /usr/bin/ipmiview, but i prefer the modified ipmiview.desktop file.

File missing in KVM too.

@Ashark, I don't actually use this so I'm not sure. If you'd like to be co-maintainer and give it some work, that'd be groovy.

I cannot open KVM Console. Getting Error File missing, can not open KVM But with just unpacked archive and executing ipmiview from there do not have such problem. Maybe you removed some needed files in PKGBUILD?

@Josholith: Thanks, that would be way better. I'll make the change when I get a chance later today. :)

I frequently find myself on (corporate) networks where FTP access is deliberatly blocked. I also block FTP at home. SuperMicro publishes these same IPMIView downloads at an HTTPS location on their site, and I had no problem changing my PKGBUILD to use the HTTPS site and successfully makepkg. Please consider my patch below to make HTTPS your default, since it should work on practically any network and is way more proxy-friendly. Regards, Josh.

@grinderz, done! Thanks for the suggestion, saved ~20MB compressed package. Even more on disk I'm sure. :)

you can remove jre dir from installation, no need for bundled jvm.
