java-runtime should not be a dependency for this package, as the Debian package brings its own JRE with it. However, it also does not provide this JRE for other packages (or even for running JNLP applications).

I can reproduce the issue @Alfred456654 reported and can confirm his suggested changes work as well. Can these be merged, please?

Thanks for the package but:

  • Using /usr/local/bin is not usual
  • The links created in /usr/local/bin/ do not point to /opt/OpenWebStart/, but, in my case, to /tmp/trizen-.../openwebstart-bin/...
  • The javaws.desktop file should start with #!/usr/bin/env xdg-open in order to be detected by the web browser.
