Waiting for a fix from upstream for version 0.7.0.

Thank you dmp1ce, curiously that worked for me as well. It built successfully after reinstalling jdk8-openjdk, jre8-openjdk, and jre8-openjdk-headless, and then rebooting. I also cleared out the build directory, to start fresh.

I also saw a crash yesterday but today Bisq is building OK for me. I'm not sure what caused the crash for me. Maybe I had updated Java and rebooted which fixed the issue for me.

Usually Bisq builds fine, but sadly I just had a build error appear. Here is the terminal message:

A fatal error has been detected by the Java Runtime Environment:

The error log is obviously MUCH larger, so I have not included it here, though I can share it if it is useful.

@robertfoster, bisq-bin is different because I'm using upstream .desktop.

robertfoster commented on 2018-01-25 16:07 (UTC)

@dmp1ce Good job man, It works. Could you extend these mods to bisq-bin?

dmp1ce commented on 2018-01-23 14:02 (UTC)

@robertfoster, let me know if my change works for you.

robertfoster commented on 2018-01-22 15:28 (UTC)

Hi, could your set Icon=bisq in .desktop file? Icon under /usr/share/pixmaps will work as previously and this edit will grant themable icon for bisq

When you build the PKGBUILD you can take out the -Dmaven.repo.local="$mvn_repo" section for the build to use your global maven repository. To be convenient to most users, this would require a new PKGBUILD to be uploaded to the AUR which I am most likely not going to do. Anyone is welcome to copy my PKGBUILD though and maintain a a build like you suggest.

You could also use bisq-bin which just downloads the binary.

This project is great but the AUR package is a bit of a pain because it redownloads all the maven dependencies fresh every time. I understand that it's probably desirable to have an isolated, clean build by default, but it would be great if there was a way to have it build from a persistent local maven repo. I'm not building lots of maven projects on this machine so I think it's unlikely that I will have any problems as a result of doing this.

I'm passingly familiar with maven but I'm clueless about pacman/yaourt. Is there a way to arrange this relatively straightforwardly?
