- fix: Requires java-runtime now (otherwise GUI will not start, thanks for report this issue to Dragonji and step21)
- fix: It is possible to configure MyJDownloader settings over terminal (by using JDownloaderHeadless)
- new: simple small checks for checking the MyJDownloaderConfig
- new Script for removing MyJDownloader settings ("JDownloaderHeadlessCleanLogin")
- scripts reordered and moved

Thanks, but I meant step21 regarding of the late response. Hopefully todays update will fix your problem. I made a night shift for reproducing your problem. After I installed todays update I had to logout first. To be sure: Please restart ;-) It seems, that the "headless-java" package was the problem.

Does this update fixes your problem as well? Would be great to hear....

Hey, you don't have to apologize, you actually answered really fast!

Do you know how could I fix it myself? My DE is Xfce if it matters.

@Dragonji, @step21:
Sorry for the late response. I am currently busy. I will fix this Problem during Easter....

I've got a weird problem. Installed the package with no problems but when I try to launch it, nothing happens. I can see a JDownloader process in Task Manager but I can't see any window related to it on my desktop. Do you know, by any chance, what might be wrong?

So, for some reason also the icon/link showing up in gnome shell/app menus starts jdownloaderheadless (but without starting any terminal) so it is quite useless. Could this maybe be changed so that at least the icon and just typing 'jdownloader" starts gui, and jdownloaderheadless starts headless?

Hi epinephrine,
you are right that it spams the journalctl. But I don't think that the output should be passed to /dev/null , because it might be important to have a view in the logs, when something is going wrong.
That's why I have implemented a redirection to a log file (STDERR and STDOUT). From todays release The JDownloader directory will contain the current log and the log for the last run, so it is possible to identify a problem even if Jdownloader is starting up automatically on startup.

Is this solution ok for you?


PS: Sorry for the late response. I hope, that I could answer faster next time.

The JDwonloader{,Headless} executables write all logging to stdout/stderr and the log levels cannot be adjusted ( Since this spams journalctl when starting jdownloader with systemd via jdownloader.service, I think we should add > /dev/null 2>&1
to the last line of JDownloaderHeadless.

should be fixed now. Please inform me if not

Thanks. :)

As a workaround i changed the .desktop file name.

Thanks for the hint. I took over the package where the command "JDownloader" was integrated and spelled in this way. As far as I know the package was introduced to support the beta of jdownloader2, when both versions (1 and 2 ) were separated. There was no dependency to the old jdownlaoder package. I will add alias scripts to support the command "jdownloader".
Please have a look tomorrow...
