@dmp1ce I have the same issue that @waasl pointed out on the second part of his comment - The build is successful, however running bisq-desktop or /usr/bin/bisq-desktop or /opt/bisq/bisq-desktop (or even clicking the bisq icon) doesn't work, and the error is the same as his: line 13: ./gradlew: No such file or directory. I'd like to emphasize this isn't an issue only with yay, because it also happens with paru and also when installing it manually with git and makepkg. I was able to reproduce the issue on 2 different computers, it happened regardless if I was updating this bisq package, or if I was installing it for the first time. However, running /opt/bisq/bin/desktop does work and does start bisq, so please try to look at what is happening here, I'm just a user and I don't know what's going on here.

@waasl I'm not sure. I'm familiar with pamac. Maybe just use yay for now? I build and test with clean-chroot-manager which builds from a very clean environment.

Can't install with pamac:

==> Starting build()...
  -> Building bisq...
/var/tmp/pamac-build-otto/bisq/PKGBUILD: line 30: ./gradlew: Permission denied
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().

Instead installed with:

yay -S bisq

On run in terminal:

$ env JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/java-11-openjdk /usr/bin/bisq-desktop


/usr/bin/bisq-desktop: line 13: ./gradlew: No such file or directory

please help

@FreddieChopin, Thanks! I applied the changes and the build worked fine.

I asked about this issue on Bisq chat and I'm copying the reply I got from one of Bisq developers:


Hi freddie_chopin, sorry for breaking the Arch Linux build. I fixed it here: You can clone the repository and run makepkg to build a package for pacman. The maintainers fo the AUR package need to update the PKGBUILD file.


Hope that helps!

I get an error when building the latest version. The tests fail:

@nbryskin I'm not sure. I have never tried to build on aarch64. If someone wants to take a look at building on aarch64 and provide a patch that would be fine.

I'm getting this error when building on aarch64:

@dipunm, I don't know but you might need to set your java version. See:

Maybe run the archlinux-java command.

I'm getting the error:

ERROR: JAVA_HOME is not set and no 'java' command could be found in your PATH.

Please set the JAVA_HOME variable in your environment to match the
location of your Java installation.

Upgrading from 1.9.6-1 to 1.9.9-1.

I have jdk11-openjdk installed, and I have never had to add anything to my bash profile before.

I also verified, java is in my PATH variable.

I was able to address this by running: JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/java-11-openjdk/ yay -Sy bisq but I'm wondering what has changed?
