Not sure that this is directly related to this PKGBUILD but even though it now also supports java-runtime 8 and above, when I try to build this package pacaur still lists jdk (11.2) as dependency and then tries to build it first which of course fails, since this is an arm device, and thus fails to build filebot as well.

I checked the PKGBUILD but I couldn't find anything wrong with it. Does anybody have any idea?

EDIT: It seems that

makedepends=('ant' 'ivy' 'jdk>=8')

invokes building of jdk 11. If you click on the relevant link in the dependencies above (jdk>=8 (make)) that's where it links. Is this supposed to happen?

absolutely yes: ant disappeared with the renaming of the 'apache-ant' package. added again without version bump.

openjfx depends on your java choice and cannot be forced as a dependency.

thanks for reporting.

I needed to install ant and java-openjfx in order to build this, I think those should be added as dependencies?

(also, thanks for maintaining the package)

dependency update without version bump

Thanks guys, I think I have understood. A report is enough, please stop. Anyway with ivy, packaging doesn't work.

apache-ivy has been renamed in ivy. Please update dependency. Thank you

apache-ivy has been renamed ivy in the official repos

There is a conflict between Apache Ant and Apache Ivy in the official repos. caused by the renaming of "apache-ant" to "ant", including renaming its lib path, without adjusting where Ivy puts its JAR. I filed a bug report about it.

It results in the following:

/home/zach/build/filebot/src/filebot/build.xml:796: Problem: failed to create task or type antlib:org.apache.ivy.ant:retrieve
Cause: The name is undefined.
Action: Check the spelling.
Action: Check that any custom tasks/types have been declared.
Action: Check that any <presetdef>/<macrodef> declarations have taken place.
No types or tasks have been defined in this namespace yet

This appears to be an antlib declaration. 
Action: Check that the implementing library exists in one of:
        -a directory added on the command line with the -lib argument

I temporarily fixed the problem by symlinking ivy.jar to the new location Ant expects:

sudo ln -s /usr/share/java/apache-ant/ivy.jar /usr/share/java/ant/ivy.jar

hi nylocx, it is an old inheritance that no longer makes sense to exist. thanks for reporting.

Hi, can you please remove the cd $APP_ROOT from the This breaks a lot of my cli scripts which use relative path when invoked.
