This package has now switched to Qt 6 instead of Qt 5. If you want to keep using Qt 5 instead, then please switch to polymc-qt5-git.

@sperg512 thanks. I had jdk17-openjdk installed which still threw the error. removing it and using 8 worked perfectly.

@gshinguji You need to install jdk8-openjdk. The JDK is for compilation, the JRE is for running stuff

receiving error trying to upgrade (paru):

CMake Error at libraries/launcher/CMakeLists.txt:2 (project):
  No CMAKE_Java_COMPILER could be found.

  Tell CMake where to find the compiler by setting either the environment
  variable "JAVA_COMPILER" or the CMake cache entry CMAKE_Java_COMPILER to
  the full path to the compiler, or to the compiler name if it is in the
  PATH.

anyone know what this might be? I have jre-openjdk(-headless) and jre8-openjdk(-headless) installed. I tried jre17 as well to no avail.

@Cryen I just fixed that issue in the latest update, it should work now

I can't seem to find a solution for this issue

@haxie Not the place but yet here you are replying and trying to claim authority. I provided plenty of justification, one should/could glance over my comments and see. You're just trying to get the last word in and take the high road, not civilly end this discussion. I guess I will, everyone can research the facts over the situation and make a judgment call for themselves and what project to use, as FOSS should be able, freedom and choice.

@hockeymikey This is not the place. The decision is final. Providing no justification for calling a community member a liar is out of order. You can claim to be unbiased, but that's not the impression you give off.

Take this elsewhere.

@haxie That's what I've heard, but yet to hear more on why. People are throwing around all sorts of crazy myths such as there is "malware" in it or ever will be which is just insane claims.

All of what cafkafk said was incorrect. They are a new user which is clearly a troll account to bring drama of the situation here. He takes Lenny's comments out of context and draws his own conclusion to them. It's very much a strawman. Let's not even get into the compromised portion which is entirely wrong. He has not shown not interested in developing the project, just a different direction which is fine, and great that others wanna fork it and do their own thing. That is what FOSS is about.

It's been only a few days, neither one is at a state of being "developed". The thing about FOSS is people can choose which one works best for them. I'm not biased (which it seems like you are based on comments and how involved you are in them...) and want people to choose for themselves. Sure, if someone finds comments inflammatory or some other personal reasons, they can take that into account but I'll let the individual decide for themselves.

@hockeymikey Given the "maintainer" of the project has been banned from the AUR, this is unlikely, and as the maintainer has shown himself to be a security risk, giving control to him or someone who would do as he asks, thus violating the ban by proxy, is a no-go.

The current maintainer of this project is fine being so, as nothing has changed, but if the staff find that the upstream package is in some way compromised further, it'll be promptly deleted from the repos.

Also, none of what cafkafk said was incorrect. If you're going to assert that to be the case, I implore you to give reason for that, or not make such a foolish claim.

Finally, with regards to the user's interests at heart, if that were true, you'd be telling them to switch to the new fork, as that one is actually actively developed, Lenny's fork is not. it has no developers working on it, and the only thing he has managed to do is be inflammatory.
