This package built properly on my pinebook pro under the aarch64 architecture (arm64).

I made three changes to the original pkgbuild file so that it thinks that the amd64 sources are good for aarch64. Here is the generated diff:

For some reason, the generated diff did not catch the last change. I also added this line at the end of the pkgbuild file below the x86_64 line

The dependency on openjdk is unneccessary and can be removed from the PKGBUILD.

I just installed but it failed to run. The installer (pacaur) pulled in: jre-openjdk-headless-12.0.2.u10-1 libnet-1.1.6-3 jre-openjdk-12.0.2.u10-1

$ moneydance Picked up _JAVA_OPTIONS: -Dawt.useSystemAAFontSettings=gasp -Dawt.useSystemAAFontSettings=on Error: A JNI error has occurred, please check your installation and try again Exception in thread "main" java.lang.UnsupportedClassVersionError: Moneydance has been compiled by a more recent version of the Java Runtime (class file version 55.0), this version of the Java Runtime only recognizes class file versions up to 52.0 at java.lang.ClassLoader.defineClass1(Native Method) at java.lang.ClassLoader.defineClass( at at at$100( at$ at$ at Method) at at java.lang.ClassLoader.loadClass( at sun.misc.Launcher$AppClassLoader.loadClass( at java.lang.ClassLoader.loadClass( at sun.launcher.LauncherHelper.checkAndLoadMain(

After editing the 1st line in /usr/bin/moneydance to 'export PATH=/usr/lib/jvm/java-12-openjdk/bin/:$PATH' it starts OK.

UPDATE: Ok, figured it out... in /usr/bin/moneydance add the following export statement: export _JAVA_OPTIONS='-Dsun.java2d.uiScale=2'

This increased the size, unfortunately, too much for my 14" FHD laptop screen. However, it may help others with an external FHD monitor.

Thanks for the latest install! MD renders a bit small on my HD laptop screen. MD has published a work around ( by adding a few lines to a file "Moneydance.vmoptions" that should be in the same folder as the Moneydance exec., typically in /opt.

However, I don't have anything in /opt. I did try the file in the two fillowing locations, but NG:



Any thoughts where I can add the "Moneydance.vmoptions" file to increase the display size?

Thanks for this. It is a breaking point for adopting a new distro.

Version 2019.0 (1847) has been released. This requires jre-openjdk (OpenJDK 11). Java 8 or 10 do not work).

This package probably has outdated checksums. Installation fails for me with validity checks.

"One or more files did not pass the validity check"

Any way to confine the dependancy to only java8?

As mentioned by @white_dan, I could only get the app to appear correctly when using java8.

I was able to get it working properly without changing my default jvm by installing java8 and then setting the following at the beginning of /usr/bin/moneydance

export JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/java-8-openjdk/jre

export PATH=${JAVA_HOME}/bin:${PATH}

With this little change it appears to be working like a champ, thanks.
