That's... odd. I use yaourt. Why isn't it detecting the package..?
Bug in yaourt? Oh well.. Thanks :)

You need an AUR helper. Don't build with just makepkg:

I get
error: target not found: java32-runtime-common

There doesn't seem to be any existing package for java32-runtime-common..

Det commented on 2015-03-03 23:16

You're not wrong. Fixed:

271b97a9b95d809a99999ec5fb74|31|3c # correct

I might be wrong, but it appears that the md5sum specified for policytool32-jre8.desktop in the PKGBUILD:


does not match the actual md5sum of the policytool32-jre8.desktop file when it is extracted from the tarball:

% md5sum policytool32-jre8.desktop
271b97a9b95d809a99999ec5fb74313c policytool32-jre8.desktop

8u31-1: support "archlinux-java32".

The location is now /usr/lib32/jvm/java32-8-jre/jre/.

rafaelff commented on 2014-12-27 08:18

Done. Just didn't bump the pkgrel, as I don't think it is necessary.

Det commented on 2014-12-24 15:43

Since makepkg 4.2.0, the DLAGENTS line can't have quotes around "oraclelicense=a":

DLAGENTS=('http::/usr/bin/curl -LC - -b oraclelicense=a -O')

@josephgbr: This package still doesn't work with archlinux-java
@Det: When I try to load you package I got error that package metadata is missing.

Det commented on 2014-10-26 18:56

Did you get my email?

Det commented on 2014-10-21 20:52

Support for 'archlinux-java', among other tweaks:

Changes in this package:
1- 'bin32-jre' now matches 'jre' version, so version 8 (currently); For version 7, see 'bin32-jre7'
2- Folder changed to /opt/java32/jre/

Changes in this package:
1- 'bin32-jre' now matches 'jre' version, so version 8 (currently); For version 7, see 'bin32-jre7'
2- Executables now ends with "32", e.g. java32
3- Folder changed to /opt/java32/jre/
4- Executables are in the PATH, so you don't need to call fullpath anymore

Det commented on 2014-05-16 18:23

Java 8 _is_ still held off from exactly so that they can sort out most bugs, but since the non-bin32-jre (my version) is already at 8u5, this one should be too.

rustam commented on 2014-04-26 11:40

I was going to look into upgrading it to version 8 on the weekend, but I think I'll just orphan this package and let someone who is interested to adopt and maintain it. I don't use it myselft anymore, and at the moment don't have time for this.

rafaelff commented on 2014-04-22 19:49

Well, I can't tell how up-to-date is the information in, but I notice the package 'jre' is already using java 8u5 (and it exists 'jre7' with version 7u55) and, for what is worth, here is some information:

rustam commented on 2014-04-22 19:35

According to Java 8 is still considered to be a development version.

rafaelff commented on 2014-04-22 18:36

Please update to version 8 and, if possible, provide a "bin32-jre7" with the current version

rustam commented on 2014-04-02 07:47

I've added a symlink from /opt/bin32-jre/lib/i386/ to /usr/lib32/mozilla/plugins/ into the package, so it don't need to be created manually. bin32-firefox detects it just fine.

rafaelff commented on 2014-04-01 15:56

Please create symlink /usr/lib32/mozilla/plugins/ via PKGBUILD instead of relay on the end-user. Also, 32-bit libs should NEVER mix with 64-bit libs in /usr/lib/; always install them in /usr/lib32/.

rustam commented on 2014-03-31 12:17

this 32-bit java plugin won't work with a 64-bit firefox, but it should work with a 32-bit browser, e.g. aur/bin32-firefox .

g.schulz commented on 2014-03-29 11:33

Even after creating the symlink, the plugin does not show up in Firefox. Does anyone else have the same problem?

7u7 is out.

Here is the updated PKGBUILD:

There are some of the gnome commands that I dropped because I don't need them.

Hexcles commented on 2012-07-03 10:50

One of the dependencies "lib32-libxi" cannot be found, package building failed.

ivan_p commented on 2012-06-21 19:34

7u5 is out.

Changes to canurabus PKGBUILD:



canurabus commented on 2012-05-25 23:51

PKGBUILD for updated version:

I used Doctor_Drive's PKGBUILD and changed the url since Oracle seems to have changed up its site

rtimush commented on 2012-01-27 08:15

I disagree, 32bit plugin is required for 32bit browsers.

Doctor_Drive commented on 2011-12-23 19:10

I would suggest making the PKGBUILD like this
I would not suggest installing the launchers and and Mozilla plugin because they have to come from 64bit jre.

Doctor_Drive commented on 2011-12-23 18:54

You have forgotten to make the paths like /opt/bin32-jre/ instead of /opt/java/jre which conflicts with oracle jre
