RoundCube: So, what if java 7 is selected as default? :)

I maintain several java-related packages here in AUR and for all of them I had to maintain custom start scripts that work for most people independent of their selected default. Extracting this logic into a common script was the logical consequence. I don't see how a separate package hurts anyone.

How about changing the startscript to

java -jar /path/to/file.jar

instead using an additional AUR dependency? I tested it with both java 8 & 9.

Ah, that may have been related to the new version that was available and is now reflected in this package.

Ok, my comment on "validpgpkeys" was wrong, investigating further it looks like it was an issue with sha256sums.

I installed archlinux-java-run separately with no problems.
Then on "makepkg -sri" I got:
"==> Validating source files with sha256sums... ... FAILED
yed.desktop ... Passed
yed ... Passed
==> ERROR: One or more files did not pass the validity check!"

Just now though, it installed correctly!
So definitely not a problem with your package, just not sure why it failed earlier.. weird.

Thanks for the quick response!

andreab82: validpgpkeys would require yWorks to provide signatures for their files. Do you have an issue with building this package? It should be as simple as running "makepkg" after making sure that all dependencies are installed.

Hi, would it be possible to add the validpgpkeys please?
Otherwise any suggestion on how to build the package would be appreciated.

rainbyte: Thanks for the hint! Does yEd work well for you using Java 9?

I'll try to come up with a more general version of the start script over the weekend. Your change looks good but if anymore still has jdk7 set as default it will still break because the java executable has moved in jdk9.

This error appears when using jre9-openjdk to run yed:

/usr/bin/yed: line 8: /usr/lib/jvm/java-9-openjdk/jre/bin/java: No such file or directory

To make it work with this jre, I have changed the conditional on /usr/bin/yed to this one:

if [[ "$(archlinux-java get)" =~ ^java-(8|9)-* ]]; then

simon_sjw: I updated the package to fix the issue with the checksum. To your openssl issue: You should try to figure out why the openssl.cnf in some pacaur cache dir is chosen by default. This doesn't look like a healthy setup…

Thanks Bevan,
I tried using git clone and then makepkg -si and still got the same error.

Looking at the forums, it turns out that locating my openssl.cnf file and exporting my $OPENSSL_CONF env. variable helps:

export OPENSSL_CONF=/etc/ssl/openssl.cnf

but it's now failing on checking the sha256sums.
I can see a few options included on the mail from ardemiranda below but when I try replacing the sha256sums line in PKGBUILD with the one on the bottom (since I'm >3.16) I get no joy.

Any thoughts?
