Your right, it's done. Thanks.

Hellooooo, i suggest remove the line that mentions it is a packet sniffer in ovtr.desktop because the main developer said this in the changelog: "Starting version 2.0.0, I decided to deprecate the sniffer feature and refocus the tool on its original purpose: a visual traceroute."

Emeric commented on 2022-04-02 09:35 (UTC)

Sure, I've updated the package. But In the future who knows...

@Emeric are you up for taking maintenance of this package?

Updating this package to 2.0 is easy. I've set the java-11 environment in the ovtr file, so it doesn't conflict with the one set on the system. The libpcap link and root seems to be useless in the 2.0, the packet sniffer has been removed.

cd /usr/share/OpenVisualTraceRoute
export PATH="/usr/lib/jvm/java-11-openjdk/bin/:$PATH"
java -Xmx512m -Djava.awt.headless=false -jar org.leo.traceroute.jar
pkgdesc="Open source cross-platform Java Visual Traceroute"
arch=('i686' 'x86_64')
depends=('java-runtime=11' 'traceroute')

if [ "$CARCH" = "i686" ]; then
elif [ "$CARCH" = "x86_64" ]; then

package() {
  cd "${srcdir}/OpenVisualTraceRoute${pkgver}"

  install -d -m755 "${pkgdir}/usr/bin"
  install -d -m755 "${pkgdir}/usr/share/OpenVisualTraceRoute"
  install -d -m755 "${pkgdir}/usr/share/OpenVisualTraceRoute/"{lib,native/linux/${_arch},resources}

  cp -rPf "resources/"* "${pkgdir}/usr/share/OpenVisualTraceRoute/resources"
  cp -rPf "lib/"*.jar "${pkgdir}/usr/share/OpenVisualTraceRoute/lib"

  install -m755 "${srcdir}/${_short_pkgname}" "${pkgdir}/usr/bin/${_short_pkgname}"
  install -m755 "org.leo.traceroute.jar" "${pkgdir}/usr/share/OpenVisualTraceRoute/"

  install -D -m644 "${srcdir}/${_short_pkgname}.desktop" "${pkgdir}/usr/share/applications/${_short_pkgname}.desktop"

@kusky: Got the same Error, solution was on the cmdline :

archlinux-java status
Available Java environments:
  java-17-openjdk (default)
sudo archlinux-java set java-8-openjdk/jre

fails on startup: org.leo.traceroute.install.EnvException: java.lang.NoSuchFieldException: usr_paths

@UtopianShoe: Okay, I see. The script contains stuff that we don't need anyway, so I have removed it now and start the jar directly from the ovtr script.

@Jake: It seems to be related to the script ./

The program can now launch as long as I change the line in $HOME/ovtr/ from is.3D=true to is.3D=false. I presumably lack the necessary package installed for the 3D rendering.

@UtopianShoe: I don't have that installed and it runs fine. Seems strange to me, why should Xhost be required for this tool?
