@simon04 The wording have just been changed. It used to state: "Java Development Kit (JDK) must be installed" ( In typical Arch Linux fashion, I didn’t double guess upstream when doing the initial packaging. That’s why I was replying to egilis.

@egils, thanks for reporting. You're right. java-runtime should be sufficient. I've changed that in 3.4.1-2

@rdoursenaud: OpenJDK does not necessarily refer to Java JDK. provides the Windows kit with embedded Java amounting to 152 MB. The AdoptOpenJDK JDK on is larger than that.

@egils Well, I’m following upstream documentation that explicitly states JDK is required:

egils commented on 2021-02-03 07:55

I was surprised to see that it depends on java-environment and not just java-runtime. I changed to java-runtime and it works just fine. Could you fix that so we don't have to download the whole JDK when installing?

There was a new release yesterday:

Thank you!

Just a comment about the script: It would be nice to be able to pass arguments to the refine executable. Currently I would need to call /opt/openrefine/refine just so that I can increase the memory available to the app (e.g. /opt/openrefine/refine -m 8192m )

@rdoursenaud, please update to 3.3 –

@Nudin a symlink didn't cut it, I created a launch script. It's named openrefine since argyllcms already uses /usr/bin/refine

Nudin commented on 2017-12-15 12:09

Thanks. I would add a symlink /usr/bin/refine → /opt/openrefine/refine to make it easier to start. That's quite the standard when software is installed in /opt.

@Nudin Launch /opt/openrefine/refine from a terminal to start the server. Interaction is then done from an Internet browser. Hit CTRL+C in the terminal window to stop the server.
