Latest dev news:

Note: was modified and includes a path to Java 8, allowing non-destructive running of PlayOnLinux5 with default Java not set to Java 8. See: for more. There is not need to force users to set default Java to Java 8 at this time.

There is a Qt version being developed, but it is far from test-ready.

@jeekiii I had the same problem and I managed to solve it following the answer given in this link:

Ok I see the issue. Update again and try once more. I believe I found a workaround.

You will have to give me some steps to reproduce, the launcher "" also shows this behavior to be correct when java-7-openjdk is set as default:



# Allow either openjdk java or Oracle java to be used

if (( $(archlinux-java get | cut -d "-" -f2) < 8 )); then
export PATH=$(ls -d /usr/lib/jvm/java-{8,9}-* 2>/dev/null | head -1):$PATH

# Start PlayOnLinux
java -classpath "$CLASSPATH" org.phoenicis.javafx.JavaFXApplication "$@"
[mikeyd@archboxmtd playonlinux5-git]$ archlinux-java get | cut -d "-" -f2
[mikeyd@archboxmtd playonlinux5-git]$ tmp=$(ls -d /usr/lib/jvm/java-{8,9}-* 2>/dev/null | head -1)
[mikeyd@archboxmtd playonlinux5-git]$ echo $tmp

@WizardOfTheWest, I've been trying to make people happy on this one. Let me look again. If it isn't Java 8, it's "I want Oracle JDK, not OpenJDK." Are you saying it doesn't work when building or when running? I can confirm building works fine for me when java-7-openjdk works for me.

Doesn't work when default java is set to java-7-openjdk

Gives the error:

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.UnsupportedClassVersionError: org/phoenicis/javafx/JavaFXApplication : Unsupported major.minor version 52.0

Had to manually switch to java-8 via:
sudo archlinux-java set java-8-openjdk

Alright, I can confirm at least pacaur can install the package, so it seems that test error is at least contained to virtual/vm/chroot-like builds. I'll still see if that can be overcomed.

ProfessorKaos64 commented on 2017-05-22 01:16

Ok, so it seems tests fail it is is built with makechrootpkg -r $CHROOT, but not with makepkg -c. The graphics pipeline test doesn't appear to test ok outside of a chroot. Still tinkering to see if I can help that.

Working through some test failures. Thank you for your patience.

ProfessorKaos64 commented on 2017-05-21 14:20

Thank you for the comment. I'll add it to the deps soon.

java-openjfx is required to run, not only to build. I had to install it by hand on the running machine
