@infinitnet: It looks like the line "Picked up _JAVA_OPTIONS: -Dawt.useSystemAAFontSettings=on -Dswing.aatext=true" is breaking screaming frog's java version detector. I'm not sure what you have configured so it prints that.

You could edit /usr/bin/screamingfrogseospider and change
VERSION=$(java -version 2>&1 | head -n 1 | cut -d'"' -f2)
VERSION=$(java -version 2>&1 | grep version | head -n 1 | cut -d'"' -f2)
for a quick fix.

This packages gets /usr/bin/screamingfrogseospider right from screaming frog, so it would make sense to report it to them to be fixed first, but if they won't and it continues to be an issue; I can add a patch to the package to modify it.

A simple fix for openjdk8 (should be compatible with v7) and adding the missing gawk dependency (which is present upstream):

It does seem to be upstream with openjdk8. It works just fine with openjdk7.

With 7 the output is:
$ java -version
java version "1.7.0_91"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea 2.6.3) (Arch Linux build 7.u91_2.6.3-3-x86_64)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 24.91-b01, mixed mode)

With 8 the output is:
$ java -version
openjdk version "1.8.0_66"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_66-b17)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.66-b17, mixed mode)

The script is specifically looking for the "java version" part and in 8 it changed to "openjdk version"

its probably an upstream issue, but the launcher script does a poor job at detecting what it thinks is the apropriate java version. It completly fails with openjdk. The program itself runs fine with openjdk1.8 though - once you remove the [if] from the launcher
