@Taijian: thx, fixed.

Another nitpick: Jameica does not actually use gtk2 any more. GTK3 is the standard on Linux since 2.8.3 - therefore gtk2 can be removed as a dependency.

See here:

Also, in order to make jameica use java8 on systems where it is installed, you could patch the starter like so:

if [ -d /usr/lib/jvm/java-8-openjdk/bin/ ]; then export PATH=/usr/lib/jvm/java-8-openjdk/jre/bin/:$PATH fi

That would help people who usually use a newer java version but would still like to also use mashup (which is still stuck at java 8).

Just a nitpick/heads-up: According to the author of mashup, java-jce_ustrength is no longer required since Java 8.u161. See:

@stepborc: please import the key and try again: gpg --receive-keys 5A8ED9CFC0DB6C70. You can setup gpg autoretrieve as well.

@mareex: jre versions are a mess. jre above 9 includes java-jce_ustrength, which otherwise needs to be supplied as dependency. However, some jameica plugins (notably mashup) require the oracle java in version 8 (still the suggested version at their website). so, i agree that enforcing java-environment>10 does not really make sense, the fractured java ecosystem is not easy to handle in this case.

Unfortunately there is a problem with the public key.

"FEHLGESCHLAGEN (Unbekannter öffentlicher Schlüssel 5A8ED9CFC0DB6C70)"

Any valid reason why this PKGBUILD enforces 'java-runtime>=10'? Everything works fine here with java 8

@fordprefect: Works on my side. Thanks

Ok. I will leave this as it is now and fix this tonight on my arch machine. Sorry! EDIT: should all be fixed now, runs like this smoothly at least for me. Please test and report issues. Thanks everyone!

@fordprefect: Running sed -i 's/jameica-linux/\/opt\/jameica\/jameica-linux/g' /usr/bin/jameica and running jameica afterwards returns an error saying manifest /usr/bin/plugin.xml not readable.

I guess it is because the current path is incorrect (like @Taijian already stated)
