I always need to perform this command when starting specific app via WEB:
sudo chown -R :wheel /etc/java*

No need to be pasting those. Please just include them in the out-of-date message, if necessary.

They don't actually need to be, since they are sourced ("source <name>.sh" OR ". <name>.sh"), not executed ("./<name>.sh"):

Any package doing that is either a leftover of the old behavior (fixed in December 2010), or how upstream does things.

The files at /etc/profile.d/jre*.sh aren't executable

Awesome, glad I could help. Thanks for the quick responses and packaging!

That's exactly right. The HighContrast and LowContrast icons have been deprecated in at least GNOME way back in 2.22 [1], which was already available in Arch in April 2008 [2].

I've removed those from all of my Java packages. Thanks very much for your contribution!

When uninstalling this package I get a message saying "error: command failed to execute correctly" right before the uninstall finishes. Debug output didn't give any useful information (this was the only error) and I can't find any evidence that something failed to remove.

Not sure if it's just something like having a nonzero exit code without error or an actual error, but I figured I'd report it just in case.


EDIT: Sorry for the deleted comment, couldn't find a better way to edit. I went through and checked and apparently it was because of there not being LowContrast and HighContrastInverse icon folders besides this package so the xdg-icon-resource command gives an exit code of 3. Not sure if I just don't have something installed on my system. I don't think there actually is any issue, unless these are deprecated icon sets or something like that.

I'll check that out, my man.
