I am not fluent with Java tools, but the gluegen build instructions seem to require specification of the target JRE version for their ant build command. Presumably, Geogebra's gluegen build has been made for JRE 8.

It is true that jre8 needs to be installed (it need not be the default, the geogebra wrapper script takes care of selecting the right version) for some Geogebra functions to work. I never use those functions however.

Example: Start with a later JRE than 8 and try to switch to 3D mode. Console output:

There is clearly a bug somewhere. For the time being, I would recommend to just add java-runtime=8 to depends. In particular, I would not like to have a binary blob installed that has no benefits over any of Arch Linux's jre8-* packages.

@xiretza with java 14 or 15, when you finish your drawing then right click on mouse to select the zone to be exported, the selection doesn't work with those jres, but with jre 8 it works perfectly.

xiretza commented on 2020-10-13 13:06

@medmedin: can you show some examples of those broken functions? I have not had any problems related to the of java version.

medmedin commented on 2020-10-13 09:42

@xiretza geogebra 5 needs jre 8 because with recent jre versions like 14 and 15 some functions are not working at all.

medmedin commented on 2020-10-13 09:38

The portable install zip this script downloads contains both the app and jre suitable for running it which is version 8, but the install script only installs the app without its jre which will causes problems for the app if started with recent jre versions. The install script should install both the app and its needed jre.

medmedin commented on 2020-08-13 11:14

The downloaded zipped package contains also the JRE that the software should be run with, but with this PKGBUILD it installs only Geogebra files and ignore the embedded JRE. The software should be run with the embedded JRE to avoid compatibility problems. After installing this package, I don't find Geogebra JRE inside /usr/lib/jvm/.

Hi. I am facing the following issue:

  • The right button doesn't work with the objects in the Algebra View (it makes nothing). It happens with every object.

I have tried other possible shortcuts, with no much success:

  • Application key (≣ Menu) in the Algebra View: with some objects it works, with other objects it doesn't work. However, I have seen this behavior in the portable version too. I don't have checked the same applet in other distros.

  • Right button in the Graphics View: it seems to work fine always. However, for a good navigating, it's needed this feature for the Algebra View too.

  • Edit menu, option Object Properties: it seems to work fine always.

Please, do you have any workaround to fix this issue?

I have only a few weeks as an ArchLinux user...

The portable version of GeoGebra 5 works fine on my computer (https://download.geogebra.org/package/linux-port)

ArchLinux; linux kernel: 5.7.12; GeoGebra 5.0.593.0-d; windows manager: i3-gaps 4.18.2-1

Of course! I don't use a graphical file manager, so I never even noticed. Thanks for the patch.

Would it be possible for a next update to insert this line in geogebra-mime.xml:

<generic-icon name="geogebra"/>

in order to have geogebra's files show in file managers with the app icon instead of the default anonymous one ?

$ diff geogebra-mime.xml geogebra-mime-plus.xml
11a12
>                <generic-icon name="geogebra"/>
23a25
>                <generic-icon name="geogebra"/>
