Today's update (17.1.20231203-1) fails sha256sum on file Visual_Paradigm_CE_Linux64_InstallFree.tar.gz

Line 35 of the PKGBUILD is failing because the actual path is ${srcdir}/Visual_Paradigm_CE_17.1/Application/bin but because of the value of pkgver the command is trying to access path ${srcdir}/Visual_Paradigm_CE_17.1.20230601/Application/bin

For 17.0, this works for me:

# Possible values: usa10 usa11 usa13 usa14 usa15 usa16 usa17 uk3 uk4 uk5 ca1 france3 germany6 germany7 germany4 germany8

SHA256 sum: 61c95e837c4645d1f75d1211b7ba79eb2bfc82737722839b30d87418030a49cc

Edit: Like lokonu says below, I also had to replace INSTALL4J_JAVA_HOME_OVERRIDE like this:


or else with java-17 it is half-broken (save doesn't work).

This package still seems to be broken.

  • Had to modify the first sha256sum value with a new one, due to new version on website (this package has already been flagged so isn't as much of a deal)
  • Had to replace "INSTALL4J_JAVA_HOME_OVERRIDE" value with "/usr/lib/jvm/java-8-openjdk", didn't work with "/usr/lib/jvm/default-runtime" which was pointed at "/usr/lib/jvm/java-18-openjdk" (i suspect this is more of an issue with the package itself though..)

After these changes to PKGBUILD file, the installation succeeds and the package works.

I always had issues with multiple Java versions installed on my system. Visual Paradigm seems to require Java 8. As a workaround, I changed ${pkgdir}/usr/bin/${pkgname} (at my system it was /usr/bin/visual-paradigm-community) line 4 to INSTALL4J_JAVA_HOME_OVERRIDE=/usr/lib/jvm/java-8-openjdk.

Maybe it helps someone. (probably future me)
