Note for users: The administration is updating the software several times a year without changing the upstream URL nor providing any way to be notified about this. If the package fails to build, let me know by flagging this package as "out-of-date", I'll do the necessary to update it.

Thanks for the quick response. The default java VM on my system was 8. I set it to 17 thanks to the command you gave and now it is working like a charm :-)

$ GDK_SCALE=2 vstax2022

Hi leyouki, I can not reproduce the error. I installed jre17-openjdk and set it as default with sudo archlinux-java set java-17-openjdk. I then started VSTax and confirmed it was using the wanted Java version by looking in the "Aide > info" menu in the app. Same with the JDK version (jdk17-openjdk).

Maybe you are using another JRE/JDK that does not support running VSTax?

Hello, Thanks StreakyCobra for the work.

When launching vstax2022:

$ vstax2022 Unrecognized option: --add-exports=java.base/sun.net.www.protocol.file=ALL-UNNAMED Error: Could not create the Java Virtual Machine. Error: A fatal exception has occurred. Program will exit.

With a jdk17.

@LinuxForWork It is not possible to update from within the app. The best is indeed to mark this package as outdated and one of the maintainer will adapt the script and publish an update. I just did that for version 1.0.3, thanks for the heads-up!

Hello, I have installed with success this version 1.0.1. Then, at the launch of the app, it says the new version 1.0.3 is available, but it proposes to update with the download of a deb or a rpm file. How is it possible to install the latest version ? In this case, shall I mark the package as out of date ? Thanks a lot for providing us this required software !


Bonjour, j'ai installé avec succès cette version 1.0.1. Ensuite, au lancement de l'application, elle nous dit que la nouvelle version 1.0.3 est disponible, mais elle propose de mettre à jour avec le téléchargement d'un fichier deb ou rpm. Comment installer la dernière version ? Dans ce cas, devrais-je marquer le paquet comme obsolète ? Merci beaucoup de nous fournir ce logiciel requis !

A first version for 2020 is ready. I simplified the code to handle Java versions as it seems to be working at least from Java 8 up to Java 15 now. If there is anything wrong leave us a comment.


Une première version pour 2020 est disponible. J'ai simplifié le code qui gère les versions de Java comme cela semble marcher au moins de Java 8 à Java 15 maintenant. Si il y a quoi que ce soit de problématique laissez-nous un commentaire.
