@hades0299: the pinned comment for jameica (which you are using as well) states, that there are problems with java9 at the moment. I was not even aware of the existence of java10 yet. Since your proposal would be a very temporary fix (release expected in the next weeks), I will not take any action on this now. I might introduce a build-time warning if an incompatible java version is found.

hades0299 commented on 2018-05-16 20:55

as of this package needs java 7 or 8. With Java 9 or 10 some plugins might not work.

I had Problems with java 10, on a fresh install, so copuld it be possible to correct the version requirements?

It also looks like they dropped support for java 5 and 6.

@boenki: thats one way to see it. it contains hbci4java libraries for 32 and 64bit, thus not being suitable for other architectures besides them. you are right that the 32 and 64bit packages do not differ, but any might include arm as well, which is not true here. thats why i chose to not change to arch="any".

boenki commented on 2016-06-09 11:55

'arch' should be 'any'

fordprefect commented on 2016-06-07 07:26

and while we are at it please quote all paths econtaining variables like srcdir or pkgdir. those will break otherwise if the build path contains spaces.

boenki commented on 2016-06-06 21:13

'arch' should be 'any'
'license' should be 'GPL2'
'cd $srcdir' is not necessary
'mkdir -p $pkgdir/usr/share/applications' can be replaced by adding the '-D' argument to the install line
'Nice' in the description is ... (?)

dreivier commented on 2016-06-02 19:00

is there a fix? There was no .swt dir in my home folder.

cambid commented on 2016-03-30 18:41

@all: I don't use hibiscus anymore and disowned it today

Harey commented on 2016-03-30 16:30

Try to remove the .swt directory in your home and try again.

@longhairedhacker: cannot confirm this, jameica/hibiscus works well for me with swt 4.5-1. some other idea where to hunt down the issue?

LongHairedHacker commented on 2016-03-30 16:00

Hibiscus stopped working after updating swt to 4.5-1
See the screenshot in this german forum thread:

Us pointed out by juve in the forum thread,
downgrading swt to 4.4.2-1 seems to fix the issue.

@mbunkus: Sorry for the late response. I fixed the wrong checksum in pkgver 2.

mbunkus commented on 2014-06-11 09:01

Can you _please_ fix the wrong checksum in your PKGBUILD? See blubbblubb's comment. Thanks.

blubbblubb commented on 2014-05-05 22:39

working sha512sum:

just replace the first one

OldShatterhand commented on 2014-01-09 22:44

update has been released (2.6.2)

adlerweb commented on 2014-01-01 12:30

The mentioned URL currently serves an updated version (2.6.1) with md5sum e91490098d3a48d7078b4e480bbd405d

adlerweb commented on 2014-01-01 12:29

/usr/local/lib/ is provided by "pcsclite" (community-repo) and used for smartcard communication. It is afaik only used if a smardcard-reader is present (at least i could not find any related error, but is is linked to some libraries shipped with hibiscus) - i propose to add it as optdepends.

darWIN commented on 2013-05-15 16:23

Hibiscus complains about the file below missing. Is there some dependency missing?


cambid commented on 2013-02-22 05:25

updated to 2.4.2

Nothing4You commented on 2013-02-20 11:57

I changed the md5sum in the package to get it working, it won't install though:
$ bash -x makepgk -si
==> Entering fakeroot environment...
+ [[ -n '' ]]
+ fakeroot -- makepkg -F
==> Starting build()...
cp: cannot stat ‘hibiscus’: No such file or directory
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().
+ exit 2
+ clean_up
+ local EXIT_CODE=2
+ (( ! EXIT_CODE && CLEANUP ))
+ remove_deps
+ (( ! RMDEPS ))
+ return

2013-02-14: Hibiscus 2.4.2 released

Nothing4You commented on 2013-02-20 11:53

New md5sum for hibiscus-2.4.1 is 2d88d691e76a70900f0229a01258e998

cambid commented on 2013-02-03 10:05

updated to version 2.4.1

qs9rx commented on 2013-02-02 18:52

New md5sum for hibiscus-2.4 is e793306f8885ac5dd78c61ddbc348572

eworm commented on 2012-02-29 05:21

Can you please change source to:

source=("${pkgname}-${pkgver}::${_pkgver}/${pkgname}.zip" [...])

This way makepkg does not fail if an old zip file with (obviously) bad checksum is around.

cambid commented on 2011-10-28 04:10

@eworm: I removed the brackets in 2.0.3-2.

eworm commented on 2011-10-27 14:55

The brackets around the install file make makepkg from pacman 4.0 fail.

Anonymous comment on 2011-06-22 21:30

now jameica does not find the hisbiscus plugin anymore?

OldShatterhand commented on 2011-06-22 09:24

wrong Package Source and md5sum....
correct PKGBUILD see here:

OldShatterhand commented on 2011-06-21 12:48

hibiscus 2.0 is out

Anonymous comment on 2011-04-30 12:20

Would you mind to add a desktop entry to the package, so that hibiscus appears in the applications menu of KDE, Gnome and other desktop environments? Moreover the permission bits of the installed files should be fixed: None of the installed files is actually executable, but all of them have the executable bit set.

I've prepared a desktop entry ( and modified the pkgbuild to install this desktop entry, and fix the permissions (

chepaz commented on 2011-04-22 12:05

Same problem on 32bit as Cdh said. -> File format not recognized

haagch commented on 2011-02-03 07:16

Something is wrong on 32 bit:
/usr/bin/strip:./opt/jameica/plugins/hibiscus/lib/ File format not recognized

whoops commented on 2011-02-02 09:34

I think you just need to delete the old source because does not have a version number in its name.

Vamp898 commented on 2011-01-25 17:27

wrong checksum

Harey commented on 2010-12-22 09:06
