@tachtler it's fixed now.

@tachtler the symlink created by the PKGBUILD is broken:

    ln -s "/usr/lib/eclipse/eclipse" "${pkgdir}/usr/bin/eclipse"

Adding the context directory as it follows worked for me:

    ln -s "${pkgdir}/usr/lib/eclipse/eclipse" "${pkgdir}/usr/bin/eclipse"

Additionally, I had to create a symlink to the installed package:

# ln -s /usr/lib/eclipse/eclipse /usr/bin/eclipse

Try to install as upgrade from eclipse-jee and following error occurs:

# pikaur -S eclipse-jee-bin
chmod: changing permissions of '/var/cache/private/pikaur/build/eclipse-jee-bin/pkg/eclipse-jee-bin/usr/bin/eclipse': Read-only file system
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package().
Finished with result: exit-code
Main processes terminated with: code=exited/status=4

... Thank you!

@altermetax I'm in the same boat -- no longer allowed to use IDEA. What a shame! Thanks for maintaining this.

The warnings are due to some files not being recognized as x86_64 ELFs during the stripping process because the official Eclipse build includes non-x86 binaries. Those warnings are harmless, but to avoid them you can disable stripping by adding OPTIONS=(!strip) to the PKGBUILD.

As for the Java version being installed rather than JEE, please check whether you're building the right package. The downloaded tarball's name during makepkg should be eclipse-jee-2024-03-R-linux-gtk-x86_64.tar.gz.

On version 2:4.31-2 I get a lot of warnings during the build process and when starting Eclipse it seems to be the regular Java version of Eclipse, not the JEE one.

Will do on the next release. I haven't done it until now because of users wanting it previously, but actually now there appear to be more who have problems with it than otherwise.

I think line 23 with backup=('usr/lib/eclipse/eclipse.ini') causes a lot trouble when interacting with other packages. The problem is that when you upgrade, it uses the old eclipse.ini file which references files of the previous eclipse version that no longer exist. This requires some quite annoying manual work to fix it. So, I would like to suggest removing it when possible.

Thank you.

Oh, I know and used IDEA. I'm forced by external factors to use Eclipse (and no one wants to maintain it on Arch) :D

No problem, good continuation and dont forget to switch to IDEA one day, you will love it ;DD It's weird when you switch from eclipse to it at first, but you quickly adopt it for all what it does better than eclipse
