I'm pretty sure this version is known to be not working with any Java newer than 8. This can be worked around by adding, "export PATH=/usr/lib/jvm/java-8-openjdk/jre/bin/:$PATH" to the second line in the script at "/usr/bin/vassal". This does mean there is a dependency on openjdk 8 then - but at least it's not broken anymore...

Thanks for reporting. I'll have a look at it next week.

Flagged as needing possible update due to vassal not working with java-11-openjdk.

Ups! That was a mistake. In the previous commit I prepared it to remove the call to jar, but I forgot to take it out from the PKGBUILD! It should be fixed now.

Not sure where the "jar" command in the PKGBUILD is coming from, but it's not present on my system, so the build fails. Replacing "jar xf" with "unzip -xf" worked fine however... should jar be present? Assuming you have it, what package provides it for you?

davvil commented on 2016-04-06 16:28

Done! I added the icon directly in the package in order to avoid java-environment as a dependency.

Sorry also for taking so longer to answer. With the last update, I remembered this .desktop matter

The patch is here:

It yet includes the "jar xf" command.

Sorry for not coming back to you, but this kind of fell under my radar. The link has expired, can you upload it again, as the original link has expired? I will include the icon in the files to download, so that jar is not needed.

xisberto commented on 2015-10-09 13:43

Here it is. I don't know if using "jar xf" to extract the icon is the best option, since it adds java-environment as make-depends.

You can paste your modifications into pastebin or a similar service. Personally I don't have use of .desktop entries, but I will be happy to include it.
