robguinness: Seems like the package builds fine but for some reason the installation fails.

I guess you are using some kind of AUR helper for installation. Unfortunately it doesn't give you the reason why installation failed. Please try building and installing the package manually as described in https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Arch_User_Repository#Installing_packages and see if it works or gives any more useful output.

I wasn't able to install. Strangely, the terminal output shows conflicting info:

"LICENSE.md fails checksum validity check."

Solved by removing ~/.cache/pacaur/jabref

LICENSE.md fails checksum validity check.

Rhinoceros commented on 2018-01-08 09:30

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.
