Packaging and running the application works by changing:

pkgver=3.5.0 pkgrel=1 sha256sums=('d89a16a10e757e22dc38e751e62ffb792df909909895f257ac24b3bde828e44f'

Thanks for the completely new version based on the .deb package.

Could you please add the following two lines to the greenfoot file in /usr/bin With these lines, the Documentation view works.

APPBASE="/opt/greenfoot/"

JAVAPATH="/usr/lib/jvm/java-8-jdk"

For the new version (3.1.0) just change the following in the PKGBUILD:
* pkgver=3.1.0
* the first line in the sha256sums to: '848609d8489e244e18c57821e0516040e91c093bb7110cf92ccd3d4aec9c5451'

Then run:
* makepkg
* sudo pacman -U greenfoot-3.1.0-1-any.pkg.tar.gz

Don't forget to install the following packages:
* sudo pacman -S jdk8-openjdk java-openjfx

If you want the proper greenfoot (program) icon(s), unpack the deb file (from the greenfoot website) and copy the folders CONTENTS/usr/share/icons and CONTENTS/usr/share/pixmaps to the appropriate /usr/share Arch Linux folders.
Then, within the /usr/share/applications/greenfoot.desktop file, change the Icon= line to Icon=greenfoot

just edit:

pkgver=3.0.3
to
pkgver=3.0.4

and

sha256sums=('8a4f067fd1f011353cdd68ff9933fac2a6bb232a2aec80552c3ecc2ffab25bf9'
to
sha256sums=('2500594408350f3d2320386b4baab90f6c8fb899f5c4baf8d3623d06595d3ef8'

after that installing was no problem.

But the icon is still missing.

Hi, by changing the package version and md256sum[1] to the correct hash for 304.jar in the pckgbuild I was able to install this through pacman(aur). Could you update the official package so it is no longer out of date?


Greetings,
Nathan

Thanks!

Could you please look into the problem that the greenfoot icon path is wrong.
/usr/share/applications/greenfoot.desktop shows Icon=/usr/share/java/greenfoot/images/greenfoot-icon-48.png
but the directory only goes as far as /usr/share/java and the only file to reside in that directory is libbluray-j2se-0.9.2.jar.

The deb-package copies files to /usr/share/icons ; /usr/share/pixmaps and consequently the /usr/share/applications/greenfoot.desktop file reads Icon=greenfoot because /usr/share/pixmaps has a file named greenfoot.xpm (which is used as icon).

Cheers,
Michael

You are welcome teacher4711! Glad to hear such entusiasm and commitment to Greenfoot and ArchLinux! :)

Hi fheday,

I'm so glad you volunteered to maintain the package!!

I use Greenfoot a lot in my lessons and I've even been able to convince some pupils to use ArchLinux. I've created a bootable USB thumb drive with ArchLinux and all the necessary free software we use in our lessons on it, and Greenfoot is one of these packages.

Cheers.
Michael
