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.

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.

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?

This build is for the official Oracle build of Java, so any other sources should not be taken as reliable/safe/legal, etc., but it seems that Oracle's way of doing things finally caught up with AUR as well. In other distros (Gentoo for instance) you had to manually download the archive and place it in the distfiles folder before running emerge.

With the way Oracle licenses their things I don't think that providing the archives from an alternative source is 100% legal, so don't flag the package "out of date" (it's not).

After Oracle's move to not supply direct download links, it seems that it will be the same case for AUR. @severach: you'll probably need to pin instructions how to obtain and where to place the archive.

For Yaourt users:

  1. Try building and fail, but wait at the restart prompt.
  2. Download the archive from here: (requires an account).
  3. Place the downloaded file in /tmp/yaourt-tmp-[your-user-name]/aur-jdk8.
  4. Restart the build in Yaourt.

@thunder72: Your browser authentication won't carry over to the PKGBUILD. The only way that might work is if you copy the entire link, and my link becomes irrelevant. The hash is the same for everyone. All that changes is the AuthParam.

@muhviehstarr: That link is no good. The AuthParam is only good for a half an hour.

I've considered checking ~/Downloads and changing the source if I find the file there. That would let you download in the browser then build the package without moving the file by hand. No good for non GUI installs. How many Arch gods would smite me for this?
