For this update (jabref-git 2.11b3.251.g9b010a4-1) , and a fully up-to-date system that has been restarted, I get

I did try executing "gradle tasks" with the suggested options, but no error messages ensued.

Updated to use new git repo and gradle build system.

haawda commented on 2015-01-20 23:32

orphaned, new build system uses gradle, and I do not know how to package this.

the git repo is wrong

Yes, and no :) Thanks , and sorry for the noise.

Did you switch from Oracle Jave to openjdk recently? Did you relogin after that switch? You may also rebuild jabref-git afterwards.

jabref expects java at /opt/java/jre/bin, but openjdk is at /usr/lib. Perhaps something like the following should be added to the pkgbuild?

mkdir -p /opt/java/jre/bin
ln -s /usr/lib/jvm/java-7-openjdk/jre/bin/java /opt/java/jre/bin/
