I'm assuming most people buy a Windows license (since it's by far the cheapest option if you run on multiple platforms; IDA works perfectly with Wine on Linux and macOS).

Want me to change the post-install message?

Thanks for your package, but something you said at the end of the install is wrong. You give the url of the window plugins...
In fact the plugin for linux is in the package you already downloaded: bindiff420-debian8-amd64.deb. When you extract it, you can find it in opt/zynamics/BinDiff/plugins/zynamics_bin* to his .idapro/plugins folder.

I already have depends=('java-runtime>=8').

If I force Java 8, it's going to be a pain to launch with Java 9.

You need Java 9 for HiDPI.

== EDIT ==

it works if I do this before launching bindiff:
export PATH=/usr/lib/jvm/java-8-openjdk/jre/bin/:$PATH

can you write a wrapper to force java8? most of my apps need java7 that's why it's my default.


Unfortunately this doesn't work for me:

@cyrozap: I've added you as a co-maintainer, would you mind pushing your patch?

I've made some changes to the package, including support for i686 and adding the launcher icon and licensing information. You can find the patch here:

Note that I switched the package checksums to the ones provided on the BinDiff download page.
