@StefanT: Putting myself into the upstream URL in my view would be horribly wrong. (1) For 99% of people it's way more important to find real upstream than my github repo. (2) I'm not the author of yed and won't ever claim that I am. (3) I do not want to be held accountable for any bugs within yed itself.

Btw: Do you have an example for other packages that do this? The wiki is pretty clear about this:

The URL of the github repo is right on the top of the PKGBUILD. So anyone who edits it will see it immediately:

I will look into the StartupWMClass issue later today.

Bevan, it's probably me but I cannot find a link to the github project where you want to receive pull requests. Maybe you could put the github link into the upstream URL field on this page? At least this is what I have seen in other AUR packages.

Meanwhile: it looks like the desktop entry is part of your packaging. Please correct the startup WM class such that the correct icon is shown in e.g. Gnome3 when the application is running:

seamus: It's sufficient to click the "Flag out-of-date" link. I'll update the package as soon as possible.

If you want to provide a new PKGBUILD, I'm happy to receive pull requests on github. Posting it as a comment clutters the comment history forever, although the package has long been updated.

You're correct Bevan, I didn't think that. I installed openjfx and fixed my yed without changes on yed package.

machfour: That's a good hint, thanks! I will add this as a dependency soon and adjust the start script to make sure that a JRE with JavaFX support is used.

rthoth: Exactly, this way you can force usage of Oracle's JRE. However, I don't want to force this for everybody as yed seems works fine with OpenJDK (apart from the warning on startup).

I had jdk8-openjdk and jre8-openjdk installed, and yEd wouldn't start until I also installed java-openjfx. Maybe it should be added as a dependency?

seems ok now, thanks

jose1711: I don't know. Did you test it yourself? I certainly won't before any Java 10 package is in the repositories or at least in AUR (an by that I don't mean jre-devel).

Edit: I missed that there is a "jre" package in AUR (only looked for jre10). I'll test and may update the script accordingly.
