benalexau I needed 'c4fb512c612bfddf45f0324ce63a4bc6' to make it work.
Is there somewhere that changes can be pushed (i.e. is the PKGBUILD hosted on github)?

benalexau commented on 2017-01-11 04:32

@goodboy, all fixed.

Seems like the checksum is failing again...

As per https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Java_class_file internal version 52 means Java 8. See https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Java for info on the various Java packages available for Arch (I use package jdk8-openjdk).

Thank you very much. I still had problems with the installation because the jar command was missing. It was necessary to switch from "java-8-openjdk/jre" to "java-7-openjdk" using the archlinux-java command.
But now starting ib-tws fails with an exception: Exception in thread "main" java.lang.UnsupportedClassVersionError: jclient/LoginFrame : Unsupported major.minor version 52.0
I will do some research later. I guess it's because I'm using awesome as window manager.

Hi NyanCat. IB made three changes to the installer and launch model, so the automatic sync scripts required more TLC (click "View Changes" if you're curious). The scripts have now been amended and as such auto-sync should work again. 956.2n is now available from AUR.

Hi benalexau, the md5sum of tws-latest-standalone-linux-x64.sh seems to be out of date again. Maybe you can fix it?

ibizaman commented on 2016-02-16 06:01

Finally everything did not went well. As you can see in the output log here: https://gist.github.com/ibizaman/23b6482e742360cae0c5, it failed at the end although I really do not see where is the problem - there's no error line as far as I can see. Do you have a guess?

EDIT: okay found it.
In fact, with the new makepkg release, you cannot build anymore as root. So I ran the makepkg step as the nobody user and that made the install fail like in the log. This is because the nobody user has no $HOME directory assigned and thus it tries to install in weird folders.

ibizaman commented on 2016-02-16 04:17

Thanks again. How can they even think about making it so painful...

The auto update script has been pretty reliable for nearly a year, but a few months back IB fundamentally changed the TWS installer model. They now use Install4J, bundle a JRE and require a GUI installer. I've adjusted the scripts to handle these major changes, but sometimes IB publishes a new archive (so a different MD5) but the same version number (!), which my automatic scripts fail to detect. Anyhow I have manually updated the package, so you should be good to install now.
