Because there is nothing to update!

This is a VCS-like package that always installs the latest version (built for every SVN commit). It cannot be suffixed with -svn because it isn't built from the SVN but downloads a compiled jar file instead.

Please read the description and the PKGBUILD before you submit a request, thanks.

Thanks for the hint, jose1811.

Actually that modification was already in my experimental branch of the PKGBUILD which I've just committed and uploaded. Here are some of the new features:

- include man page
- extract logo from jar file
- handle restart of JOSM
- add global configuration file for JOSM (e.g. for memory limit)
- fix and extend desktop file

for some reason everytime i start geeqie it complains about this:
Desktop file '/usr/share/applications/josm.desktop' should not include extension in Icon key: 'josm.png'

could you please remove the extension from icon filename? thank you

Why have you flagged the package out-of-date? Just built it and everything is fine.

$ pacman -Qs josm-latest
local/josm-latest 8175-1

Nice stuff! But I don't see any benefit with this. You can get a Certum certificate for free, so this change will not help for security and it violates KISS.

Lekensteyn commented on 2013-12-11 16:43

Please consider enabling verification of the package using jarsigner. I abused the prepare() function for this.

SammysHP commented on 2013-10-19 17:12

Why? Is there any benefit? Also your url includes the version, but this PKGBUILD downloads always the latest version and determines the version afterwards with pkgver().

Btw: I took the url from the old PKGBUILD that I've adopted some days ago.

You should switch to using a direct link to the logo instead. (

I'd like to take over this package, if possible. Thanks.

Please avoid $startdir.

habiloid commented on 2012-03-12 08:10

Thanks, that worked

@habiloid: try makepkg -g >> PKGBUILD && makepkg

When trying to build I get:

What should I do?

farvardin commented on 2012-02-23 08:13

archlinux badly need a way to disable checksum check for this kind of package, we don't care about the md5, and it's a pain to update the AUR only for this.

lfleischer commented on 2011-09-22 13:30

Eichi: Please rename this one to josm-snapshot and use snapshots instead. We can merge comments and votes of this package into the new one. Thanks!

stativ commented on 2011-09-15 14:50

I suggest using snapshot instead. Their md5sums doesn't change.

gadget3000 commented on 2011-08-29 19:00

Hi. What is the difference between this package and josm in [community]?

nickoe commented on 2011-05-30 21:06

@alparo: You should generate the md5sum yourself, since the source changes very often

nickoe commented on 2011-03-20 18:06


nickoe commented on 2011-03-20 18:01

You forgot the md5sum...

jose1711 commented on 2011-02-20 13:10

@alparo: you should be more specific

Anonymous comment on 2011-02-20 13:08

please, do something with pkgbuild. it doesn't work for me. :(

jose1711 commented on 2010-12-21 21:45

i think empty md5sums are there for a reason - they tend to change too often. other than that you should be using package() instead of build() to package the source and those '|| return 1's are no longer necesssary

Revised PKGBUILD with checksums of JOSM version 3733.

jose1711 commented on 2010-09-01 17:02

please modify to:

java -jar "${CLASSPATH}" "$@"

so one could open an file in josm using

$ josm file_to_open.osm

thank you, jose

hcartiaux commented on 2010-06-12 13:39

Here is a revised PKGBUILD with md5sums for josm version 3329 :
