To make it running you have to do yay -S jre8 jre8-openjdk and then sudo archlinux-java set java-8-jre/jre (NOTICE that this will make the whole system start jre8 by default ....)... after that you can finally start with /usr/local/bin/visual/ OR BETTER WAY, to ONLY use jre8 in Visual and NOT in ALL system, you can just edit the /usr/local/bin/visual/ shell script replacing "java /path/to/jar" command with "/usr/lib/jvm/java-8-jre/jre/bin/java /path/to/jar"

The package should not use /usr/local. "Packages should never be installed to /usr/local/" -

sudo pacman -S java8-openjfx jre8-openjdk
sudo archlinux-java set java-8-openjdk/jre

.. to get it running

maybe we should have a separate AUR package (visual-with-jre?) that does not delete the bundled JRE, to avoid double downloads

Then it should be explicitly said in the dependencies.

Actually, the problem is that it only works with Oracle's JRE, that is 'jre8' on the AUR.

@MarcinWieczorek the present PKGBUILD removes the shipped JRE. If you maintain it, everything works. Maybe some sort of incompatibility with Arch's JRE?

The error seems to be upstream, but you guys might know the solution: Error: Could not find or load main class visual.VisUAL The class exists and the manifest looks good.

Btw. could you change the sources? They host downloads on bitbucket and you can the real and absolute paths there Thanks

I am both surprised and extremely happy that someone has put this on the AUR.
