@damir /opt/anaconda/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/var/lib/snapd/snap/bin path is weird; /usr/bin/vendor_perl/exiftool path is normal.

Did you install this application from here? Are you using some Arch derivative?

Anyway, deal with it: File -> Preferences -> ExifTool Location: Choose (select exiftool in the location where it is located on your system) or paste the location in the bar (/path/to/exiftool)

19:27:07.472 [AWT-EventQueue-0] INFO org.hvdw.jexiftoolgui.Utils - exiftool path: which: no exiftool in (/opt/anaconda/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/var/lib/snapd/snap/bin)

seems that exiftool is provided in a weird location:

/usr/bin/vendor_perl/exiftool

how do you guys deal with this?

@tom and @medmedin : To compile, gradle needs java version 11 (in fact, version 12, but only available in [AUR], version 11 is from [extra]). With version 14 of java, gradle (even in last version 6.5.1) crashes with your error «Could not initialize class org.codehaus.groovy...»

So, you must run, before compiling jexiftoolgui :

    archlinux-java status (to see which version of java is currently active on your system)
    sudo archlinux-java set java-11-openjdk

Then, you can compile jexiftoolgui. Gradle will work fine.

For execution of jexiftoolgui, you can use java 14

The build fails with the following error with OpenJDK14 :

I think gradle should be updated to 6.5 to support openjdk14.
