@matth I totally forgot about the launcher.
As you're writing a config file with default arguments for the JRE, why not include the path to the java binary as well?

Something along the lines of

if [ ! -f $FILE ]; then
echo "/usr/lib/jvm/java-8-openjdk/jre/bin/java -Xmx512M" >> $FILE
JAVA=$(cat "$FILE")
${JAVA} ...

@deraffe thanks for the tip about setting the version.

Any suggestions for the launcher if using a different package of java? Right now, I'm having it start with /usr/lib/jvm/java-8-openjdk/jre/bin/java so it uses the correct version even if you have a different version set as your system default.

@matth I believe the package should depend on java-environment=8 as there is not only OpenJDK out there, and that *should* be the common meta package. Though I guess OpenJDK is fine for now.

Thanks for the report @flaccid

Screaming Frog only works with openjdk 8 right now. Now that openjdk 9 is out, 8 is no longer the default for the java-environment meta package.

I have updated this package with a change to always use 8 no matter which other versions you also have installed.

@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.

Please set your default jre to be java 8 using:
