G3ro: I cannot reproduce that issue. I also have openjdk 19 installed and set as default, so it will be used to run tvbrowser. That works for me. Do you get a specific error message when running tvbrowser from the terminal?

Tvbrowser failed to start.

I assume the Java version used is 19 (as only 11 and 19 are installed on my machine). When I set the --max option to 11 in, tvbrowser starts again.

@Raimar: This is probably a bug in namcap. The fact that the package includes jar files means that a java runtime is required. java-environment in contrast provides the SDK, which is not needed to run java applications. Compare and When I find some time I will investigate this further but I don't see a reason to change the dependencies here.

Raimar commented on 2016-01-06 20:47 (UTC)

Please change dependency from java-runtime to java-environment, because namcap sys: tvbrowser E: Dependency java-environment detected and not included (found class files usr/share/java/tvbrowser/tvbrowser.jar, usr/share/java/tvbrowser/plugins/NewsPlugin.jar) tvbrowser W: Dependency included and not needed ('java-runtime')

I used the same pkgbuild today as earlier and it worked OK this time. Sorry to trouble you.

Bevan commented on 2015-01-20 10:04 (UTC)

No issue here. I fixed the dl link a few minutes after the report. Please make sure you have the newest PKGBUILD.

I still get ERROR: Failure while downloading tvbrowser_3.4.1.0_bin.tar.gz curl: (22) The requested URL returned error: 404 Not Found but as the uk_rt lists are now closed down then it is not worth me installing this now. Especially as nobody is writing a plugin for metabroadcast. For reference, the information on the demise of the RT tracker - "The schedule above also means that the legacy Radio Times feed referenced here will be deprecated on November 1st (in line with this announcement on the Atlas list) and fully turned off in January 2015, so if you're a user and did not migrate to the new feeds already, use the next months to do so." from blog/ atlas-deer-goes-out-in-the-wild
