Why use camel case to start the downloader? A annoying break from Verion 1.

Is it possible to change it?

Holodoc commented on 2015-10-23 14:17

Thanks for the hint. Is fixed now.

In your case it is easy: Just install JAVA ;-)

/usr/bin/JDownloaderHeadless: line 23: exec: java: not found

I think dependencies are missing something, or someone give it a try installing this AUR package on a fresh system, if it runs.

I love this package. Thank you!

Oh, it's a beta version.

You could now rename this to 'jdownloader', as the previous one hasn't been pulled with July 8th having passed:

-for root and users in jdownloader group it uses the global installation, otherwise local
-service: Restarts automatically

I agree with some points:
- I will add a check if the current user is in jdownloader group or root. In this case the directory /opt/JDownloader will be used otherwise ~

- For JDownloaderHeadless the same thing will be implemented

I disagree regarding, because in my case I have a running raspberry pi. When I turn this pi on, I don't want to login with jdownloader to start the service (Yes: I know there is a way by lingering, but normally you would expect a system service)

But I am open for any other comments. But we should move the topic to an emailthread.

Adopt it if anyone want to implement the suggested fix.

Changing the umask to have everything in /opt/JDownloader2 be world-writeable by default is a bit suboptimal, security-wise. If the dedicated user & group are really required, then one could at least remove the world-writeable bit from the umask and require that users are added to the jdownloader group.

Having updates bootstrapped into ~ seems more preferable to me, and the jdownloader script is ready for that; but since the PKGBUILD always creates /opt/JDownloader, the ~ based bootstrapping is never used.

It might be a better option to use ~ as a default, and only force a world-writable destination for the .service, if that’s really needed. But it seems to be a dedicated user isn’t needed at all. Rather, the headless .service could ship as a user service instead of a system service.
