$ gpg -k 5A8ED9CFC0DB6C70

Error installing jameica with my favourite AUR wrapper:
==> Verifying source file signatures with gpg... ... FAILED (unknown public key 5A8ED9CFC0DB6C70)

but Successful if installing jameica manually:
$ git clone
$ cd jameica/
$ makepkg --syncdeps
$ makepkg --install

The .desktop file included in this package is currently broken.

It should be
Exec=/usr/bin/jameica instead of Exec=/usr/share/java/jameica/
Icon=/opt/jameica/jameica-icon.png instead of Icon=/usr/share/java/jameica/jameica-icon.png

@stepbor You are right. I could not believe it but reinstalling the package fixed it. pacaur showed some diff for the PKGBUILD that I did not get before. Perhaps the version number was not updated for the fixes?

@windy I had the same problem to start jameica/hibiscus. So followed the notice in the same forum, that somebody removed jameica and installed it again. So I did it with yay -R jameica and yay -S jameica. And jameica will run.

jameica does not start anymore:

[Wed Aug 04 21:10:56 CEST 2021][INFO][main][de.willuhn.jameica.plugin.Manifest.<init>]   Directory  : /opt/jameica

It seems that I am not the only one:

@fordprefect I have just pushed an update for swt, which is a dependency for hibiscus/jameica. From what I can see, the dependency is not in the PKGBUILD.

All users, it will be necessary to rebuild first jameica, then maybe also hibiscus, after swt-4.20 is installed.

EDIT: Disregard, it actually does not depend on swt anymore, it seems.

Hi fordprefect, here I'm not able to install jameica, because of not valid key: ==> Erstelle Paket: jameica 2.10.0-1 (So 04 Jul 2021 18:45:18 CEST) ==> Prüfe Laufzeit-Abhängigkeiten... ==> Prüfe Buildtime-Abhängigkeiten... ==> Empfange Quellen... -> jameica-start-script.patch gefunden -> jameicaserver-start-script.patch gefunden -> jameica.desktop gefunden -> gefunden -> gefunden ==> Überprüfe source Dateien mit sha1sums... jameica-start-script.patch ... Durchgelaufen jameicaserver-start-script.patch ... Durchgelaufen jameica.desktop ... Durchgelaufen ==> Überprüfe source_x86_64 Dateien mit sha1sums... ... Durchgelaufen ... Übersprungen ==> Überprüfe Signaturen der Quell-Dateien mit gpg... ... FEHLGESCHLAGEN (Unbekannter öffentlicher Schlüssel 5A8ED9CFC0DB6C70) ==> FEHLER: Eine oder mehrere PGP-Signaturen konnten nicht überprüft werden!

->Any idea?

Hi, thanks for providing that package.

A small hint from my side, the jameica.desktop does currently not fit to the actual installation, which is described by the PKGBUILD.

As Exec /usr/bin/jameica can be used (the shell script is copied to that location)and the Icon is currently located at /opt/jameica/jameica-icon.png

I guess that the installation location have changed on some update and the .desktop links weren't updated. :)
