@ssshaikh I've added rsync to the make dependencies. Thanks for reporting :)

My attempt to build failed in a chroot due to the unavailability of rsync - adding it to make depends does the trick.

I'm getting the following error when trying to run Java programs in Processing: "Cannot run program "/usr/lib/jvm/java-8-openjdk/bin/java": error=2, File or directory not found" Perhaps it's related to some paths being patched in this package?

Since version 4.0b2 is the official download version on the Processing website now, this package won't use a separate namespace anymore, but will use the namespace "processing" for binary files and shared directories instead.

This means that processing4 can be used as a drop-in replacement for the processing package, but also that both packages cannot be install alongside anymore.

fixed the hash for the, unfortunately those are released without versioning so the only way we can know they changed is when the build break. I guess is could SKIP it as suggested by cyberpunkrocker, after all they are using HTTPS that should be more than enough for security.

About the build is also forced JAVA_HOME in the ant build command to point to java8, so now it should build even if you have other JVM selected, tested with openjdk8 installed.

@cyberpunkrocker: this pkgbuild need some love, i wanted to clean it up since i took maintenance over it. I will try to work on it those days

I've got a failure for the checksum of "". Should be "fabe7420a714f450a6b1430f13fc46f14ba52db57af360365c6a7fd96d0b642f" (works for me).

Also, I have no idea how to do it, but you should make sure we execute with Java-8, tried it with 15 and it did not work.

@kleintux Thx, I've updated the checksum.

@ianmethyst: The files ARE identical, check with diff if you don't believe me.

But sorry, I was being a bit unclear. 'processing' and 'processing-java' in /usr/bin are symlinks to /usr/share/processing/processing and /usr/share/processing/processing-java, respectively. But because the 'processing'-script detects how it is called, it works equally well if /usr/bin/processing-java is a symlink to /usr/share/processing/processing instead of processing-java. I did that change to my system, works fine(TM). So having two separate files is completely unnecessary. Also, because I need to edit _JAVA_OPTIONS anyway to make the fonts readable, now I need to edit two files instead of just one.

@cyberpunkrocker processing-java and processing are not the same. The former is the CLI while processing is the regular IDE
