Hi, all,

I was having trouble building/installing audiveris 5.3.0-1, with complaints about not having the right java version installed; min required version 17, max required version 18.

After installing jdk17-openjdk, all is well :) HTH

@notdexterslab worked here too, thanks

@notdexterslab, Confirmed to work! Thanks!

I was initially having an issue building but—in addition to the jdk packages installed—I installed jdk17-openjdk and that seemed to solve any problems I had.

yay -Q | grep jdk
jdk-openjdk 19.0.1.u10-3
jdk17-openjdk 17.0.5.u1-1
jdk8-openjdk 8.352.u08-2
jre-openjdk 19.0.1.u10-3
jre-openjdk-headless 19.0.1.u10-3
jre17-openjdk 17.0.5.u1-1
jre17-openjdk-headless 17.0.5.u1-1
jre8-openjdk 8.352.u08-2
jre8-openjdk-headless 8.352.u08-2

Hi @caj2aur,

Sorry for only responding so late. Unfortunately I cannot replicate your error. I can successfully build the package with java-17-openjdk and even java-19-openjdk (after changing PKGBUILD). I'm not sure what rua does differently (I use yay), but it also seems odd that that could influence the building of the package. Have you tried installing the package manually from the PKGBUILD with makepkg -fsri?

Best regards

I tried installing audiveris with rua on my archlinux 6.0.2-arch1-1 system without success. The process ran as far as 194 tests, but 4 of them failed. Here are selected pieces of the output, though it appears that the first error scrolled off the top of my terminal session:

Build failed with exit code 4 in /home/caj/.cache/rua/build/audiveris

The .html report page identified the failed tests as:

ChamferMatchingTest. testMatch
    java.awt.AWTError: Can't connect to X11 window server using ':0.0' as the value of the DISPLAY variable.
ARTExtractorTest. testAllShapes
    java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: Could not initialize class org.audiveris.omr.ui.symbol.MusicFont

MusicFontTest. textPrintout
    java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: Could not initialize class java.awt.GraphicsEnvironment$LocalGE

I inserted the first line of textPrintout for each of the four errors. Those lines were all followed by several dozen lines identifying locations in various java modules.

I have the following jdk packages installed, of which 17 is recent:

$ pacman -Q | grep jdk
jdk-openjdk 19.0.1.u10-2
jdk17-openjdk 17.0.5.u1-1
jre-openjdk 19.0.1.u10-2
jre-openjdk-headless 19.0.1.u10-2
jre11-openjdk 11.0.17.u1-1
jre11-openjdk-headless 11.0.17.u1-1
jre17-openjdk 17.0.5.u1-1
jre17-openjdk-headless 17.0.5.u1-1
jre8-openjdk 8.352.u08-1
jre8-openjdk-headless 8.352.u08-1
I'm posting this query here because there doesn't seem to be any audiveris activity on archlinux Forums and hope you can give me some guidance on resolving the problem. Thanks.

Just as a heads up: I updated the PKGBUILD to automatically use Java 11 when building Audiveris, so no more such problems can arise (hopefully).

Thank you! :) From archlinux-java I had:

java-11-openjdk java-17-openjdk (default) java-8-openjdk

I set java-11-openjdk as default and the build succeeded.

@cmsigler: I had the same failure.
Set your java version to 11 (does greater work too?) with archlinux-java and your build should go fine
