I get the following exception and the app is not starting. I get the same error when I use the jar file from Github. On Ubuntu the .deb package is working.

Exception in thread "Update-Task" java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Package type UNKNOWN not supported in update list.

@illogical123: Have you started pcscd.service (systemd unit)? pcscd is the smart card daemon mentioned in den error message.

The error about /usr/share/java/openecardapp/ not existing is unrelated, it works for me nevertheless.

I don't think so. The broken cd is just a relict and acutually doesn't break anything.

illogical123 commented on 2019-03-09 12:03

When starting it says: % openecardapp
/usr/bin/openecardapp: line 3: cd: /usr/share/java/openecardapp/: No such file or directory

and then claims "Failed to etablish the context. Maybe your smart card service is not running".

Are both errors related?

The download page does now link to the exe/dmg/deb/rmp packages released on github, current version is 1.3.0. The release on github also contains an jar-archive:

It seems the jnlp-Support has been discontinued, therefor the download links do not work anymore.

I created a new PKGBUILD which uses the debian package and installs application an JDK to /opt (like the .deb does) and also includes a .desktop file and an icon:

I get an error 404 when downloading sources, the upstream url may have been restructured.

Ah - I see that was before I went back to prebuilt jars

IIRC it doesn't build against any other jre other than jre8.
