nope cant hurt, in fact i had to do that for the i2p package also. If this happens with other java apps you are probably better off just setting this in your bashrc

For those having the same problem as I did, here is a tip: If are having encoding errors while building WebOfTrust plugin like the one bellow

[javac] /tmp/yaourt-tmp-alkis/aur-freenet/src/plugin-WebOfTrust/test/plugins/WebOfTrust/ error: unmappable character (0xB2) for encoding US-ASCII [javac] final int trustCount = (identityCount*identityCount) / 5; // A complete graph would be identityCount?? trust values. [javac] ^ [javac] 10 errors [javac] 1 warning BUILD FAILED /tmp/yaourt-tmp-alkis/aur-freenet/src/plugin-WebOfTrust/build.xml:225: Compile failed; see the compiler error output for details.

The encoding of your java might be different from the file (as you can see, mine was US-ASCII instead of UTF8) So if you are having this problem, add the following line in the PKGBUILD in the prepare() function: export JAVA_TOOLS_OPTIONS=-Dfile.encoding=UTF8

Now it compiled without errors. Perhaps it is worth looking into adding it to the package, skydrome. I guess it can't hurt anyway.

thanks for notifying me, fixed

Hi! Please add "p7zip" as a build dependency. It provides the "7z" command, which is needed to run the PKGBUILD.

Updated to version 1481 which now uses the gradle buildsystem and simplifies the pkgbuild

KitamuraRin commented on 2018-06-09 02:37 These two links are broken, at least from my home connection. Is there any other ways to get these two files?

@sipaktli - I had the same error, and switching to openjdk8 via "sudo archlinux-java set java-8-openjdk" worked for me to build the package (make sure that openjdk8 packages are installed, first).

If I enable the systemd service, freenet is very rarely running once my computer is fully booted, though it starts and runs fine if I manually start it. If I add,, and Restart=on-failure, then it starts successfully at boot, and is still running once my computer is up and running.

This is what I have in my freenet.service file:


Description=An encrypted network without censorship and monitoring.




ExecStart=/opt/freenet/ start --quiet

ExecStop=/opt/freenet/ stop --quiet




I hope this helps anyone who might be having the same issue.
