@ph1r3ph0x will look for workaround

You should remove the jre9 and jdk9 dependencies since Docear doesn't work with jre > 8. See:

Package fails to build if you have a custom $SRCDEST:

==> Validating source files with md5sums... docear_1.2.0_stable.tar.gz ... Passed docear-metadata-lib-0.0.1.jar?raw=1 ... Passed docear.desktop ... Passed ==> Extracting sources... -> Extracting docear_1.2.0_stable.tar.gz with bsdtar ==> Starting build()... ==> Entering fakeroot environment... ==> Starting package()... install: cannot stat '/tmp/yaourt-tmp-dark-saber/aur-docear/docear-metadata-lib-0.0.1.jar?raw=1': No such file or directory ==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package().

Package builds fine if you replace $startdir with $srcdir in line 60 of PKGBUILD: install -Dm 644 "$srcdir/docear-metadata-lib-0.0.1.jar?raw=1" "${pkgdir}/usr/share/docear/plugins/org.docear.plugin.bibtex/lib/docear-metadata-lib-0.0.1.jar".

The current .desktop almost works, the favorite feature is broken and it doesn't recognize the opened app because it opens with "java-lang-Thread" instead of Docear or something more meaningful.

I really try do to search about it, I found this promissor post ( but I could get it to work.

I feel this might be a temporary sourceforge network issue. You can download the package from and change the md5sum. Or download a precompiled package from
