It can be useful for others. If you installed autopsy with the wrong version of java. It is necessary:

(error : org.netbeans.InvalidException: StandardModule:org.sleuthkit.autopsy.core jarFile: /usr/share/autopsy/autopsy/modules/org-sleuthkit-autopsy-core.jar: java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: java.lang.reflect.InvocationTargetException)

1) Remove packages compiled with the wrong version of java yay -R autopsy sleuthkit-java sleuthkit

2) Clear yay cache: (/! \ To be adapted!) /bin/RM -fr $HOME/.cache/yay/autopsy $HOME/.cache/yay/sleuthkit-java

3) Change the version of java sudo archlinux-java set java-8-openjdk

4) Start a new shell to take the correct version into account or: bash -c "yay -S autopsy"

with version 4.17.0 change line

ln -s /usr/share/java/sleuthkit-${_skver}.jar $pkgdir/usr/share/${pkgname}/${pkgname}/modules/ext/sleuthkit-postgresql-${_skver}.jar


ln -s /usr/share/java/sleuthkit-${_skver}.jar $pkgdir/usr/share/${pkgname}/${pkgname}/modules/ext/sleuthkit-${_skver}.jar

for it to work.

Where should I find sleuthkit-4.10.0.jar? I used yaourt -S autopsy and didn't download the jar file specifically

kingkhan94 commented on 2020-12-17 11:05

@test0 Please follow these instructions

cd /usr/share/java/


sudo cp sleuthkit-4.10.0.jar /usr/share/autopsy/autopsy/modules/ext/

cd /usr/share/autopsy/autopsy/modules/ext/

sudo cp sleuthkit-4.10.0.jar sleuthkit-postgresql-4.10.0.jar

log out and log in

When running Autopsy after installation, I am getting this Error,

Activation failed: StandardModule:org.sleuthkit.autopsy.core jarFile: /usr/share/autopsy/autopsy/modules/org-sleuthkit-autopsy-core.jar: java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: org.sleuthkit.datamodel.SleuthkitJNI.getVersionNat()Ljava/lang/String;

Then, the interface is opened, but without the core plugin so it is not useful. When trying to "Activate" the "Autopsy-Core" default plugin, this error is shown on Console.

Library not found in jar (libtsk_jni)
SleuthkitJNI: failed to load libtsk_jni

And the UI shown a message box with the Error pasted initially ("Activation failed: StandardModule:org.sleuthkit.autopsy.core....").

I tried some tricks suggested online like running Autopsy with JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/java-8-openjdk but this did not help.

Would love your help with fixing this issue or instructing me about the steps I should take

I have the same problem as @tcmal. I have OpenJDK 8 set as default and also checked JAVA_HOME. I also tried starting it explicitly with: JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/java-8-openjdk/ autopsy

JavaFx 8 is also intalled.

for new sleuthkit-java ver

edit: this is borked because upstream sleuthkit is at 4.9.0
