" fails checksum validity check."

Solved by removing ~/.cache/pacaur/jabref

jbarnett commented on 2018-01-15 23:50 fails checksum validity check.

That seems logical to me, too.

Bevan commented on 2018-01-08 09:28

Rhinoceros: That makes sense, yes. Hm... I could require java-openjfx=8 here since jabref currently only works with Java 8 anyway.

Rhinoceros commented on 2018-01-08 09:24

Oh yeah… I can see that now. I have no idea. Ahhh… perhaps it's because jre provides java-openjfx=9, and I already had that installed?

Bevan commented on 2018-01-08 07:53

Rhinoceros: How did you manage to install this package without installing java-openjfx first? It is a dependency.

Rhinoceros commented on 2018-01-08 04:00

The new version failed to start on my system with:

Error: Could not find or load main class org.jabref.JabRefMain

I'm using java-8-openjdk. After installing java-openjfx, jabref could again launch.

@Bevan: it was the license file. Deleted and reinstalled.

I was also having some issues building the package. Cleaned out the cache of my AUR helper, then had no issues installing it. Might have something strange going on with scrap files from between versions, but it was a simple fix.

... which is exactly the checksum given in the PKGBUILD. Even in upstream's master branch the file was not touched since May:

billypilgrim and dvzrv: Maybe you have still an old file from JabRef 3 lying around? If necessary, please download the file manually and check where the difference is coming from.
