I do not know how to fix the error because I cannot reproduce it. Also I am not a Java expert. If anyone finds a solution, I am happy to update the package accordingly.

@a-ludi The updated package builds and installs fine, but I get this error when attempting to run it: Error: Could not find or load main class com.masv.superbeam.desktop.SuperBeamApp Caused by: java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: javafx/application/Application

I have all jre & jdk dependencies met

@annoyingduck I updated the package to the latest version. I works fine for me. Please try updating.

This package will not build. The latest package available on Superbeam's website will not run due to java errors. The latest Android update will not work with the Linux Superbeam 1.2 (which worked great). How have you guys got this working with the latest builds?

Version 5.0.3-1 works for me except the sending. This is because the ssl-proxy binary is not installed by the package. Superbeam reports this error:

java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Binary file /home/alu/bin/linux-x86_64/ssl-proxy does not exist.

Just putting ssl-proxy somewhere on the path does not work but putting it to the expected location does. I am not sure how to handle this situation. Maybe the Superbeam developers have an answer to this?

@leledumbo's fix for the pkgbuild works for stopping the update notification, however the new version of Superbeam 5.0.3-2 simply does not work. Nothing launches. I ended up just removing this package and downloading the Linux pkg direct from Superbeam's website, which is version 1.2 and creating my own launcher which is working fine. Superbeam's website downloads the 1.2 version for Linux, not the 5.0.3 version. I'm assuming the 5.0.3 version is for Windows only. I think this AUR package needs to revert back to 1.2 or needs some modifications, as this current build simply doesn't work for me. Has anyone else gotten the 5.0.3 version to work?

It's due to pkgrel in PKGBUILD is still 1, change it to 2 and you're all set (certainly this is package maintainer's job, but in case you don't want to wait).

Latest build is having some issues. It doesn't register that it's been updated, so Pamac keeps thinking there is an update. It also doesn't launch after upgrading. Clicking the app does nothing. I've built it through Pamac and Yay, both are yielding the same results.
