Hi @clmbtti, I don't use this package anymore (for the lack of wayland support). You can report these messages to upstream and update the package. I orphan it now.

Had the same error. I set it to jre-jetbrains, the JRE I installed for JetBrains stuff and it worked:

export JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/jre-jetbrains

@schmunk Do you have a jdk installed such as jdk8-openjdk? It provides java-environment.

I got an error during installation:

/var/tmp/fontweak/src/fontweak-1.3.1/nbproject/build-impl.xml:929: The following error occurred while executing this line:
/var/tmp/fontweak/src/fontweak-1.3.1/nbproject/build-impl.xml:269: Unable to find a javac compiler; is not on the classpath.
Perhaps JAVA_HOME does not point to the JDK.
It is currently set to "/usr/lib/jvm/java-8-jre/jre"

I have the package jre8 installed, but nothing else from Java.
