I'll look into this, but first please try the areca package which compiles from the source. It is fully compatible with areca-bin otherwise. Hopefully this helps.

Hi,

I have since recently (maybe two weeks?) the following problem:

Seems to be some error with the java version, but what can I do? I'm lost. I've gotten quite fond of this piece of software, even though the developer doesn't seem to care much about it any more (at least about the Linux version).

Thanks for the heads-up, fixed.

Please update the package to be compatible with makepkg from pacman 5.0. Makepkg seems to not like the URLs being in an array:

=> ERROR: url should not be an array
==> ERROR: Makepkg was unable to build areca-bin.

Just remove the parenthesis for source_i686 and source_x86_64 and it should work.
