This is a bug, simple as that. But thanks for the workaround, that works well.

i have a dialogBox that open and ask for a contribution (use more than 31 times).
Ok... but the link on the dialogBox doesn't works and this freeze areca (can not close it more... need to xkill or killl process). The only one way i find is to xkill the contribution dialogBox windows, then still can use areca.

So, i think:
1/ the call for contribution failed
2/ Arcea is it free, or a trial software. If it is a non free software, it should be fine to tell it clearly.

thank you very much

thanks SanskritFritz, here's the page regarding areca and problems launching with openjdk8:
http://sourceforge.net/p/areca/bugs/563/

Hopefully something gets done about it, but in the meantime you can edit your /opt/areca/bin/areca_run.sh file as mentioned.

hope this helps,
DF

That file is coming from upstream, please contact Olivier about this on sourceforge.

The script /opt/areca/bin/areca_run.sh throws:
'No valid JRE found in /usr/java'
This is caused by the versioncheck in line 69.
Can be fixed by replacing the if with this if:
if [[ "$JAVA_IMPL" = "java" || "$JAVA_IMPL" = "openjdk" ]] ; then

shimi, you're right, I just checked it. The areca-bin package is the one which doesn't need swt, since it contains it, but this one needs it. Thanks for the heads-up.

For me Areca only runs if swt is installed. Removing the swt package causes this error when trying to run areca:

Installing swt makes it run fine.

I'm sure, Areca works without external swt libs.

Are you sure 'swt' should be put in makedepends ? I would put it in depends instead
