Direct downloads are no longer available. Create your Oracle account, download, and put in with the PKGBUILD.

New and improved. Now you can just download to ~/Downloads then run the update.

does not work at all..filename is jdk-13.0.2 it's looking for 8u241...??? trying to give it the files it wants..fixing sums, and it still crash burns..changing sources[1] to tarball didn't work either

Sooo its not "the arch way", i extracted the tarball to /usr/lib/jvm/jdk-13.0.2-oracle and used "archlinux-java set jdk-13.0.2-oracle". I see the PKGBUILD has some provides i'm missing this way (ex. "java-environment-jdk=${_major}", "java-environment=${_major}"), not sure how relevant this will be, but as far as everything is concerned.."java works"

Presento este problema

Please do not post alternate sources. They are not legal. Advertising will get them taken down by Oracle or too much traffic. Keep it a secret. ==> ERROR: Hubo fallos durante la descarga de manual://jdk-8u241-linux-x64.tar.gz Cancelando...

Note the correct way to use XDG_DOWNLOAD_DIR is to simply use the output of this command xdg-user-dir DOWNLOAD

lyler commented on 2019-07-26 17:13

For those who don't use ~/Downloads as their default download folder, could the PKGBUILD be made to respect $XDG_DOWNLOAD_DIR if present?

The link kept returning HTML for me so I had to download it manually (needed to accept an agreement).

You can get a mail/password for download from

Downloads without Oracle Account are currently available from Adobe/Macromedia at:

The checksum matches the one on the PKGBUILD file. I didn't check the terms of the download so make sure that you're allowed to download/run that software from Adobe before using it.

googlesky commented on 2019-04-25 10:04

Download latest file on Oracle and put file.tar.gz to ~/Download to fix this problem.

jvybihal commented on 2019-04-23 08:37

As far as the checksums in this PKGBUILD are kept correct, I see no reason for not using as source, when its (for now) available, and the jdk-8uxxx*.tar.gz is not found in ~/Downloads.


1] check ~/Downloads

2] if not found, pull from github

What do you think?
