Thanks for your suggestions! I'll have a look at them when I have some time. Regarding the package name: A long time ago cruiser was named "atlas maps" and followed the -bin naming scheme and a corresponding provides. When it was renamed to cruiser and it was obvious that it will remain closed source, I decided to omit the -bin suffix.

Can you also install the icon into /usr/share/pixmaps/cruiser.png and create a .desktop-file and install it?

The following will accomplish this:

Comment=Map and navigation application using offline vector maps
Exec=/usr/bin/cruiser %u

You download a precompiled software (not compiling the java source, but using prebuilt java application).

So you should rename the package to cruiser-bin and add provides=("cruiser=${pkgver}"), conflicts=('cruiser').

Regards and thanks for the package!

somehow after one successful start (and crash) it now fails to start:

Inconsistency detected by dl-lookup.c: 106: check_match: Assertion `version->filename == NULL || ! _dl_name_match_p (version->filename, map)' failed!

java --version | head -n1: openjdk 21.0.2 2024-01-16.

EDIT: Turns out that when I set the rendering engine to "VTM (OpenGL)" this happens.

Just tag it as outdated in the future. But I'll also get notifications when upstream releases a new version. This got updated twice yesterday and I wanted to wait if there is another update. Unfortunately it is closed-source so I don't know why there were so many releases.

New release

@dreieck Because there is a new release and only the latest one is available on the server. Updated.

Source download still/ again not working :-(.

Cruiser is now hosted at Dropbox… I have to find a elegant way to get the file.

Source download fails (again):

There seems to be only a newer version, 2.0.2, available:, and version 2.0.1 seems to be deleted.

Thanks for maintaining!
