just attempted to install and i get told after the build "An error occured. See log file /home/gravedigger/.rssowl2/config221/1577281881197.log" i've uploaded thelog file and link is below.

after reviewing several rss readers i decided this is the one i really want to use. please any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks

@exnanilid Thanks for the tip - that worked for me. I hope that gets added as a dependency/postinstall script for this package.

if you got this error Install jdk8 and do in terminal "sudo archlinux-java set java-8-openjdk"

After removing some unneeded packages, I found myself unable to use some of the UI functionality. It appears libgnomeui was no longer needed on my system, but is required by this package. Could this be added to the dependencies list?

I do not use RSSowl anymore and disowned the package.

@scorici: I think the license is important. Corrected and bumped the PKGBUILD-version. Thanks for the hint.

I wouldn't do a release bump just for this.

Cool, thanks for changing. :)

Kaan: Regarding to their website RSSOwl only needs a Java runtime not an development environment. So I changed the dependency to java-runtime.
Let me know if it does not work for anyone.

Can you make it work with jre too? Maybe change the dependency to java-runtime-common? I did it for myself, but not sure if it's okay for general use.
