I had the following errors on updating for the latest version.

1st one:

yed 3.16.2-1 (2016-10-11 18:01)
( Unsupported package: Potentially dangerous ! )

2nd one:

==> ERROR: One or more files did not pass the validity check!
==> ERROR: Makepkg was unable to build yed.

@lenzenmi: Correct, that's a side effect of a change I did about two months ago:

Your proposed script is what we had before. The issue is that this does not work for people that have Java 7 set as default environment. So I guess a script that makes everybody happy would be more complicated. Maybe I will come up with one at some point in time. Suggestions would be appreciated of course.

For a more permanent solution for you, copy your custom start script to /usr/local/bin. Then it will not be overwritten by updates.

The runscript ``/usr/bin/yed`` does not use the system default java runtime. It tries to search for the most recent version, but in my case selects the openjdk version when I'd like it to instead select the oracle version.

I modified the path in the script as follows to use the default runtime which is how I would have expected it to behave:


# Force usage of default java version
exec $JVM_PATH/bin/java -jar /usr/share/yed/yed.jar "$@"

The provided source URL downloads an HTML file instead of a ZIP archive. It seems the download requires some license agreement. Do I have to manually download the source or are there some other automatic workarounds?

No, but it gets tiring getting notifications for people posting things about a version bump when there is a button for that to notify the packager and not everyone who wants updates about a package. Pretty sure if we removed the comments about the package being updated and the comments about the comments there would be nothing on this page.

They might not know that; I certainly didn't! I think you're making a bigger deal out of this than it is. It's not like this package is super popular and has one comment per page. And those that are, are maintained more actively so comments like that aren't made to begin with. I see your point but don't really agree. To me this counts as an issue + solution. Even our little discussion has some value imo.
