Thanks for checking and the additional insight.

I have resolved my issues by using a fresh install and ensuring that the bundled JRE was used.

I just testing fine by a fresh install of ib-tws 966.1-2 and ib-controller 3.2.0-3, then systemctl start ibcontroller@myinifile (and a systemctl status). Please note that the ib-tws package now bundles Oracle JRE and both ib-tws and ib-controller require that the ib-tws bundled Oracle JRE is at /usr/share/ib-tws/jre/.

This appears to be expecting an older build of ib-tws. Jars have been renamed and when manually adjusting classpath, getting:

java.lang.UnsupportedClassVersionError: ibgateway/GWClient : Unsupported major.minor version 52.0

Can this be updated?

Hi, the checksum for ibcontroller@.service fails.
