Bump to version 3.3.0 and switch to sha256 for file hashing. If you have problems with the PGP signatures, you need to import and sign the key from Winfried Bruegmann first.

Thanks, fixed it.

dreieck commented on 2023-02-13 18:18 (UTC) and maybe need to be added to the source-array:

install: cannot stat '/home/[...]/.cache/yay/dataexplorer/src/': No such file or directory

Thanks for maintaining!

@dreieck: Thank you for your support on this. I think i found the problem and adjusted the package accordingly. It seems that DataExplorer only works with java-17-openjdk.

Thanks, @aaronfischer, for providing the workaround and for also confirming the problem in the upstream report.

I cannot select /dev/ttyS1 (I see no serial port at all in DataExplorer; the only one my machine has is /dev/ttyS1, a real non-USB RS232-UART ; /dev/ttyS0 is something internal), I have to investigate if it is because the default Java runtime is version 19 or because non-USB serial ports are blacklisted in DataExplorer. I can check in some days.

Thank you @dreieck for reporting the bug upstream. I've added a ugly hotfix until the problem is solves properly upstream. I've also upgraded the jdk dependency to 17.

According to this comment, it seems that it is a build or dependency issue. There it was possible to build and install and run without problems.

Do you get this problem, too?

Null pointer exception reported → here.

aaronfischer commented on 2023-01-12 23:31 (UTC)

Fixed the railed signature checks. Please try again. For the null pointer exception: Can you open a bug report upstream? (

dreieck commented on 2023-01-09 11:15 (UTC)

It fails to start for me with a java.lang.NullPointerException:

java -jar -Xms64m -Xmx3092m ./DataExplorer.jar
java.lang.NullPointerException: Cannot read field "width" because the return value of "gde.config.Settings.getWindow()" is null
    at gde.ui.DataExplorer.execute(
    at gde.GDE.main(

Any idea what could be done to get it working?

Also note that according to upstream website, GTK needs to be a dependency (I don't know which version). I have both GTK2 and GTK3 installed.
