Adding symlinks to the executable scripts of basex might be useful :)

sudo ln -s /usr/share/java/basex/bin/* /usr/bin/

@maxf: hmmm... I have installed all 'java-runtime" stuff (jre8-openjdk-headless, jre8-openjdk, jdk8-openjdk) but I had no set default Java environment. So I used this: 'archlinux-java fix' and after that I installed BaseX from AUR package sucessfull without any problems :D Thanks!

@Admat81: You're missing 'java-runtime', which is missing as a dependency in this package. Install a JRE (for example jdk8-openjdk since you'll probably also want javac) to fix this.

When I try install it, I have ERROR:

/tmp/yaourt-tmp-user/aur-basex/./PKGBUILD: line 39: jar: command not found
A failure occurred in package().
Makepkg was unable to build basex.

I'm new and I don't know, how to install it correctly :(

Since 'jar' is called as part of the build step, this package should depend on 'java-runtime' instead of 'java-environment-common'. Otherwise the build will fail in a clean chroot...

Minor issue. The icon path in BaseX.desktop is incorrect:


It should be:

Yes, now it is OK. Thank you.

drrossum commented on 2015-03-17 20:40

Thanks for pointing that out. Should be fixed now.

makepkg doesn't work for version 8.0.1-1

The error message says:
install: cannot stat 'basex/license.txt': No such file or directory.
