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

jre7-openjdk 7.u71_2.5.3-1 introduces new bug (misfeature) to CipherInputStream which causes javax.crypto.BadPaddingException.
Bug is reported upstream, while waiting for workaround downgrade to jre7-openjdk 7.u65_2.5.2-3 solves problem.
