Installed and mostly working; however, the path issue mentioned in 2015-09-25 is still there. ==> The .desktop file needs to either quote the exec path or use backslash for escaping the space character. On top of that, I do not get any application icon in my GNOME applications menu. Need to dig into that to see what's wrong/missing.

@malah: The package is not out of date, the latest released version is 6.3.1 so you did wrong flagging the package as out-of-date.

Regarding the theme use, see comment on 2015-04-23: the application hangs when you complete a form project if you do not use a GTK 2.0 theme (upstream issue).

@Frontier Why did you use a custom theme ?

When I try to run the program from my xfce4 menu, I get the error:

Failed to execute child process "GTK2_RC_FILES=/usr/share/themes/Raleigh/gtk-2.0/gtkrc" (No such file or directory)

I was able to overcome this problem by editing
and changing:
Exec=GTK2_RC_FILES=/usr/share/themes/Raleigh/gtk-2.0/gtkrc /opt/jaspersoftstudio/Jaspersoft Studio
[bad change deleted]
Edit: the correct change is:
Exec=env GTK2_RC_FILES=/usr/share/themes/Raleigh/gtk-2.0/gtkrc "/opt/jaspersoftstudio/Jaspersoft Studio"

@drencrom: Thank you very much for the suggestion, PKGBUILD updated.

There is a bug in the PKGBUILD file. The variable

_binname="Jaspersoft\\ Studio"

should not have the \\ as it already has parenthesis. The symbolic link from /usr/bin does not work because it points to

"/opt/jaspersoftstudio/Jaspersoft\ Studio"

instead of pointing to

"/opt/jaspersoftstudio/Jaspersoft Studio"

The .desktop file generated in PKGBUILD has a small bug. The real pkgdir in /opt is all lower case alphabets, but in .desktop file it seems different. Further, because of the executable file name contain a space, the file name used in Exec line should be amended by add two backslash as escape char.

Updated PKGBUILD using Raleigh GTK2 theme workaround.

@Hf2094: After some tests I've discovered a workaround: Jaspersoft Studio 6.0.4 works fine when using any other GTK2+ theme than OxygenGTK (e.g I am using it with Raleigh without crashes).

It does not blend nice with my KDE workspace however...
