Both packages provide the same command /bin/vncviewer and /bin/vncserver ?

Then, test and send a patch

I was planning to but I'm asking WHY it's marked as conflicting. Is there a problem or unknown? Thanks

@newbthenewbd Done, with the downside that we now depend indirectly on the JDK

hcartiaux commented on 2019-04-22 12:04

I'd like to be able to have both available like they are on other distros (eg. Ubuntu).

FYI I hit this error.

Why does this conflict with TigerVNC? I'd like to be able to have both available like they are on other distros (eg. Ubuntu).

The jdk-openjdk requirement actually forces the usage of Java 11 to compile turbovnc. As far as I'm aware, to properly relax that requirement, java-environment should be made a dependency, instead.

If turbovnc does not work with Java 7 and older, the java-runtime and java-environment dependencies could also be changed into java-runtime>=8 and java-environment>=8, respectively.

Thanks for the hard work maintaining the package!

I think the java-runtime=8 requirement of this package can be relaxed, as it works just fine with java 11 (the jre-openjdk) from the repos. By reading the changelogs I think java 11 is now officially supported too.

For anyone encountered errors:

CMake Error at java/CMakeLists.txt:38 (message): Could not find TurboJPEG JAR file at /usr/share/classes/turbojpeg.jar. Set TJPEG_JAR to the full pathname of turbojpeg.jar or install the libjpeg-turbo SDK.

Update PKGBUILD from:




I think the latest libjpeg-turbo has changed the jar path.

  • Missing dependency libxi required for /usr/share/turbovnc/classes/
  • ~ Won't build with java10, use java-runtime=8 in depends. ~ @{this is a bug in cmake, already fixed in 3.11}
