JRE issue was resolved for me with the last builds.

But now there is

same issue with JRE :(

Not sure why but I get the JRE error with the new fixed PKGBUILD. If I remove the new /* then it builds without issue.

Thanks @blueowl. I have updated the PKGBUILD with your fix.

I've got the same error as @C_Schmidpeter. The JRE location is not properly expanded.

The JRE is not directly in /home/user/.local/share/i4j_jres/Oda-jK0QgTEmVssfllLP, but contains JRE version directory as well - /home/user/.local/share/i4j_jres/Oda-jK0QgTEmVssfllLP/1.8.0_202_64

Here is a fix:

did it for me. validity check for replace the last entry in the pkg build file with: '432a20a3ec280bbcc68aa7c155f7c038d737f0fc6d95cad829ece3d30581a2f0'

Kewl commented on 2022-07-28 08:25 (UTC) (edited on 2022-07-28 08:25 (UTC) by Kewl) fails the validity check

C_Schmidpeter commented on 2022-06-27 14:23 (UTC)

Thanks for the fix. Despite running 'rm -rf /home/user/.local/share/i4j_jres' as pointed out by @benalexau, I get this error now though:

Finishing installation ... java.home JRE location expanded to /home/vbm/.local/share/i4j_jres/Oda-jK0QgTEmVssfllLP java.home JRE location did not contain java; finding log entry which installed java Could not find bundled JRE installation entry in log

C_Schmidpeter commented on 2022-06-26 10:36 (UTC)

The error

ERROR: One or more files did not pass the validity check!

happens still/again when trying to build.

benalexau commented on 2022-06-10 02:23 (UTC)

@MarsSeed, did you get it installed in the end? It is unfortunate the Interactive Brokers installer makes so many changes outside the build directory. There is no other way of extracting the required files unfortunately.

Re ffmpeg, if you search through the comments you can see between 2018 and 2020 various packages were tried. I don't use audio with IB Gateway so I cannot confirm what works and what doesn't. The last person who confirmed something worked stated ffmpeg-compat-55, so that's what it is at present. If you confirm a different package works, I am happy to update the PKGBUILD.
