This package includes its own copy of that appears to prevent libreoffice from starting up without intervention [1,2].

This seems to occur as a result of UNO modifying the LD_LIBRARY_PATH to 'ease' things for the JVM [3]

I was able to update the PKGBUILD to use the latest version like so: Please update on your end when you get the chance.

Hasn't been updated in almost 5 months.... can maintainer please update or pass it on to someone that can?

depau commented on 2019-05-23 19:40 (UTC)

reminder to update this package ;)

depau commented on 2019-03-07 02:51 (UTC)

I requested jdk8-j9-bin to be merged to this package because of the inconsistent naming + broken PKGBUILD, and the request has been accepted. It would be good if you put it in the replaces list, so pacman will prompt users to replace that package when this one is installed, and so that AUR helpers may propose this as a replacement if they implement this feature.

@KernelFreeze, The latest version is now at 202-b08_openj9-0.12.0, please update it from your end, whenever you get the time.

Meanwhile, I have edited your PKGBUILD accordingly to get it to install and I can confirm that it works on my system.

While the package is being updated, if you already want to build the latest version, please find an updated PKGBUILD at

Updated package to latest build. Please flag this as outdated if they release a new version!
