Please note that this package builds Mindustry from the latest source code. If you wish to build a specific release, make sure to add something like "#tag=v108" to the git repository in the sources array, or use one of the Mindustry packages by dmitmel.

To build in clean chroot when cannot run archlinux-java set java-17-openjdk.

  • use java-environment=17 in makedepends
  • move depends array inside package() function

Ok, I managed to fix it. It was indeed a mistake I made myself.

I changed to java-14-opendjk via archlinux-java, even though I only installed the runtime environments and not the jdk itself.

Since there were still other Java versions installed (8 and 10), I guess gradle tried to use those old jdks as a fallback?

Anyway, the issue has been fixed and everything works perfectly fine.

I'm sorry for any inconveniences. I didn't expect this whole java version juggling to be this confusing :D

Thanks for your time and this PKGBUILD!

@Nukesor: Package builds for me. The only difference I can see is the "_JAVA_OPTIONS" line. I've asked in the game's Discord to see if anyone knows more. So far setting -Djdk.attach.allowSelfAttach=true has been suggested (which you might be able to set in _JAVA_OPTIONS or the newer JDK_JAVA_OPTIONS / JAVA_TOOL_OPTIONS?) - also something that came up when searching for your error.

The current git build fails with JDK14:

JDK 14 is now recommended in the README

Updated the package as by vasya's comments. Doesn't use absolute paths anymore so it respects $PATH. I decided to keep the java-runtime=8 dependency for now, as that appears to be recommended to build (and play?) as per the project's readme. If you wish, you can always change the requirement to >= this before you build the package.

I also changed all the file and folder names to remove the -git suffix as per recommendations in the #archlinux IRC channel, and made the package provide and conflict with other mindustry packages. I initially intended this package to be playable alongside a stable version of the game, but as both versions would use the same configuration folder, it could cause issues.

I noticed myself that I could not build the game from the latest source code. If you run into a similar issue, try to build from the most recent release tag instead (see pinned comment and, and perhaps report it to the developers.

Also, same as with the mindustry AUR package, can you please change the java-runtime requirements from 8 to >=8 ?

Can we change .desktop file to call Exec=mindustry-git instead of /usr/bin/mindustry-git, and the main executable to call java instead of /usr/bin/java ? This is the preferred way I think. The user might want to override the binaries in e.g. /usr/local/bin, and it makes sense to allow it. Also, this is how all other .desktop behave as far as I see. Thanks for the package!
