Installed this yesterday, it works flawlessly. Once installed, jdwonloader2 update itself as on Windows with no clue or error message.

@Holodoc Don't you think that an update at this moment would be appropriate? I mean this package installs 4 year old software at first just to then update it to the recent version.

For those who failed to start the service like me at first attempt. I have to create jdownloader user and group or change user and group on jdownloader.service file.

I am getting an blank window when I start jdownloader2, the UI doesn't load. The right click menus seem to be working somehow. I am using bspwm and start jdownloader using rofi.


So it was an issue with java apps where the app wouldn't render anything. It is a bug with dwm/bspwm and I fixed this by exporting a variable:


as mentioned in this post:

Does not work. After installation when trying to start the service, this package results in an error:

please consider using following in systemd service file: PIDFile=~/.jd/ Restart=always

its annoying to login via ssh and restart jdownloader if updates occure or JDownloader crashes..

Pryka commented on 2019-02-11 16:10

@gambas yes it does. Works fine for me.

gambas commented on 2019-02-11 15:54

I'm trying to use these archive to install JDownloader2 on my Ubuntu (I've tried to install Arch on my Odroid without success): I don't understand where the variables $srcdir and $pkgdir are defined, so please can you give me the whole structure of the installation path in order to copy the files?
