Yes, but also, would it be okay to depends on java-runtime>=20 (instead of a strict =20)? java-runtime is stable enough to not pin to a precise major version, isn’t it?

Please, update the package dependecy to 20 or higher as jre was recently updated to version 21. Tested here and worked.

Wouldn't make more sense to keep the older version, which uses jre19, until it is updated within the main arch repo? Even though it is flagged out of date, I think it will take a while until it is updated.

Newest version of pdfsam depends on java 20. It will build and run, if you install e.g. zulu-20-bin from the AUR.

Does not build, you added the dependency java-runtime=20. The last version of jre-openjdk available in the extra repository is 19.

@libook: I beliebve you're missing the jre11-openjdk package. You only installed the headless version of it.

I updated the package to make sure, this is fixed by arch's dependency management.

I can use this last week. After a rolling upgrade, I can not launch it with these message:

@ChaosKid42: Thanks, the workaround works for me! Maybe make zulu11-bin a dependency for the time being, as long as the issue isn't fixed in a better way?

ChaosKid42 commented on 2021-03-27 09:06 (UTC)

I'm using zulu11-bin

I can seem to get pdfsam to find the correct openjfx...

I have installed java-environment-common 3-3 java-openjfx 15.0.1.u1-1 java-runtime-common 3-3 java11-openjfx 11.0.10.u1-1

$ archlinux-java status Available Java environments: java-11-openjdk java-15-openjdk (default) java-8-openjdk

it finds java11 okay, but not openjfx 11, insisting upon openjfx 15 (latest)...

$ LANG=C pdfsam Run with exported java-11-openjdk Loading library prism_es2 from resource failed: java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: /home/richard/.openjfx/cache/15.0.1/ /home/richard/.openjfx/cache/15.0.1/ failed to map segment from shared object java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: /home/richard/.openjfx/cache/15.0.1/ /home/richard/.openjfx/cache/15.0.1/ failed to map segment from shared object ....

There must be some glue missing since openjfx is now unbundled from the jdk...
