@georgyo Wow, thank worked perfectly!

I'm curious how that problem occurred because I never had to do the systemctl commands with other programs installed through AUR. Anyways, it's working now so all is well. Cheers!

@Kanjelman Very likely you the systemd unit isn't started

try running these commands in a terminal

sudo systemctl enable crashplan.service
sudo systemctl start crashplan.service

and then launching the crashplan gui though the icon.

Hello all, I'm a total beginner to Linux and I installed crashplan 4.8.3-1 in AUR for the Manjaro xfce operating system. After the download and installation was completed by the built-in package manager, I tried to click on the crashplan icon and nothing happens (it fails to launch). Did I miss a step? Anyone else experience a similar problem? Any help is appreciated, thank you in advance!

After installation, '/etc/init.d/crashplan' contains '#!/sbin/runscript'. 'runscript' is not listed as a dependency, so crashplan fails to start when invoked by '/etc/init.d/crashplan'.

If this not some unintended artifact of my particular installation or system, '/etc/init.d/crashplan' should be fixed, perhaps to use the more common '#! /bin/sh'.

P.S. If I remember correctly -- and I could easily be wrong -- interpreter files should start with '#! [interpreter]' although '#![interpreter'' is parsed correctly almost universally. It's just not strictly standards compliant.

Thanks @georgyo for the update and adding optional dependecy to webkitgtk.

@altdev, have you tried without? I can assure you that here it doesn't start without. But I have a quiet minimal install with only i3 window manager. I think that it is linked so the usage of SWT browser component in the app.

@bigjimlefou Why should webkitgtk be added as an optional dependency to this package? The Crashplan GUI works without it installed, and there's no mention of webkitgtk on Crashplan's system requirements page:

"webkitgtk" should be added to package dependencies.

Is there a reason to include the init script for /etc/init.d even though a systemd unit file is included?

@joshaspinail Thanks! Worked like a charm.

For anybody else reading this the command to switch to 8 is archlinux-java set java-8-openjdk

**Solved** Same issue here @ervinshiznit. @Georgyo, please let me know if I can provide any useful info.

My default Java environment was set to 7, it seems CP requires 8. Switching this over resolved this for me.
