@duhbLow7 All set, this is updated to be able to use jdk21 now.

@matth Looks like openjdk recently updated to jdk21. I am getting this error again:

Could not find java\n

Thanks for the note bernimoses.

I've added ttf-font to the dependencies since it can be any font, it doesn't need to be ttf-dejavu

I got the following error:

Error: JavaFX detected no fonts! Please refer to release notes for proper font configuration
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.ExceptionInInitializerError

Installing ttf-dejavu (as described here fixed it for me. Could you add that as dependency?

@matth, thank you so much for helping. This is now resolved on my end. Cheers!

Hi lakeslit. I tried out that option and the UI seems less responsive to me with it so I don't think we want to include it for everyone. It basically disables hardware acceleration by turning that on.

You should have a file at $HOME/.screamingfrogseospider which comes default with the -Xmx2g option in it. This file can be used to add any other options you want to pass to screaming frog at start so you can update it to include -Dprism.order=sw so it looks like -Xmx2g -Dprism.order=sw

This should be a good option so you can still use the same launcher included in the package but pass the flags needed for it to run on your system.

When launching the program I am getting really strange flashing black screen. I was able to resolve it by creating this bash script:

#!/bin/bash cd /usr/share/screamingfrogseospider java -Dprism.order=sw -jar ScreamingFrogSEOSpider.jar

Is there anyway to update the package to include this? Here is an official link from ScreamingFrog on this (be warned it's written for Windows): (under interface issues)

@matth thank you. i didn't give you much to work on and you got it figured out promptly. i appreciate you as a maintainer.

Nevermind, I just saw that openjdk was just recently updated to jdk20. I pushed an update to this package which now supports jdk20 as well.
