seems you need especially java8, with the latest package upgrade I added the right dependency, but I think you also have to point the smartsvn.vmoptions to the right path if java8 isn't your default jre

Hello, with a fresh installation of smartsvn 9.3.1-2 with yaourt, I get the following error upon starting smartsvn:

Error: Java version 1.8 is required, currently is used (version 11.0.1) Add the line jre=/path/to/jre to ~/.smartsvn/smartsvn.vmoptions and change the path to the one pointing to the desired JRE.

The installation of smartsvn also installed openjdk:

~ topse % java -version openjdk version "11.0.1" 2018-10-16 OpenJDK Runtime Environment (build 11.0.1+13) OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 11.0.1+13, mixed mode)

I set the jre path in ~/.smartsvn/smartsvn.vmoptions to


but smartsvn still won't startup with the above error ... can you help me?

Hi @rp9

this package has some issues that could be easily fixed.

  1. the || return 1 should be removed as every package is built with set -e which makes fail the build process whenever an error happens
  2. the _pkgver variable can be removed and replaced with ${pkgver//\./_}
  3. the extracted variable should be removed as useless. moreover any custom variable should be prefixed by underscores
  4. the empty array makedepends should be removed
  5. the whole build functions is useless as the sources are automatically extracted in srcdir
  6. given the simple structure of any syntevo product (I maintain also smartgit, smartsynchronize and smartcvs) everything could be easily and securely placed into /usr/lib/smartcvs instead of /opt which is general place for big and too complex to maintain packages
  7. the whole .install file is useless and badly implemented. All the actions related to icon and desktop files are automatically managed by pacman hooks. The file /usr/bin/smartsvn is not managed by pacman. You can easily remove the file and place the ln -s directly into the PKGBUILD.

Here's an updated and fixed PKGBUILD: Remember to remove the smartsvn.install file, unused by the new PKGBUILD.

P.S. if you want I can co-maintain the package along with you (I'm an Arch Linux TU in the case you don't trust me)

SmartSvn wouldn't start due to following exception:
