JAVA_HOME out of the box not being set is annoying, but not having AA enabled makes this software nearly impossible to use.

The application command entry might benefit from being changed to reflect one or both improvements:

1 Depend on jdk8 and link it directly + turn on AA:

JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/java-8-openjdk/ _JAVA_OPTIONS='-Dawt.useSystemAAFontSettings=on' cytoscape

2 Don't depend on jdk8 and turn on AA:

_JAVA_OPTIONS='-Dawt.useSystemAAFontSettings=on' cytoscape

I used #1 while working towards getting this running.

Current version bump to 3.8.2

I was playing with the PKGBUILD and updated it to version 3.8.2 by making the following changes

  1. Changed pkgver
  2. Updated the URL to match the new release naming scheme as of 3.8.2
  3. Computed the sha256sum for the updated package and added it to the PKGBUILD

I have included a gist with the illustrated changes for your convenience. I'd be delighted to help co-maintain and test the package long term.

FYI: I installed Cytoscape 3.8. with the official Linux installer from Java 8-openjdk did not work, but Java 11-openjdk does. I haven't tried Java 14-openjdk.

One more suggestion -- Cytoscape is not compatible with recent versions of Java so you first have to install an earlier version (JDK-8 is the one currently listed as supported), and then you should be able to launch cytoscape with "JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/java-8-openjdk cytoscape"

If you anyone still gets "JAVA_HOME not set", set it in your shell's login script (~/.bash_profile, /etc/profile.d):
export JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/default
