In my case simply

$ sudo archlinux-java fix

resolved the issue. Afterwards I could start tvbrowser as usual.

Indeed, I missed to update archlinux-java-run in time for the JDK 21 release. Please update archlinux-java-run to v10 which should fix this error.

After a recent jre update I get this error when starting tvbrowser:

$ tvbrowser 
No suitable JVM found.
Available:         java-21-openjdk
Default:           java-21-openjdk
Min. required:     11
Max. required:     20

Adding --max 21 to the start command fixes the issue.

in /usr/bin/tvbrowser:

/usr/bin/archlinux-java-run --min 11 --max 21 ...

Or fixing archlinux-java-run might also be a viable option

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')
