Thanks for your note.
What did you meant with "headless-service"? The service itself runs as systemservice (but of cause as user "jdownloader") To be able to access via MyJDownloader it has to be configured. That's why during the installation it says: Please run JDownlaoderHeadless multiple times to configure it.

So right after you installed it with pacman there are two ways how to use it:
1) as system service: Please login as root and start JDownloaderHeadless. It will automatically switch to JDownloader user and start jdownlaoder. Please retry this command until you were abe to configre your login credentials for MyJdownloader. Afterwards you could abort the process and start the systemservice "systemctrl start jdownloader"

2) as user: Just open a terminal and start "JDownloaderHeadless". You don't have to be in JDownloader group. As in the method before: Rerun this command until it is started and configured. Please notice that the process is been killed if you request a restart over MyJdownloader (updating JDownloader).

If anything is unclear, feel free to ask

I was wondering why the headless service wouldn't work for me.
It seems as if I needed to add my user to the jdownloader group with

sudo gpasswd -a YourUserName jdownloader

and log in again before the first run. At least it is working for me right now.

@rpodgorny: i am not sure what's your proposal. Are you referencing baranators post?
Jdownloader download is now placed in another subscript..

what's the purpose of the JDownloaderHeadless step? can't it be done during the build step? thanks...

You may experience trouble after upgrading to Gnome 2.22, in my case it helped to disable the tray icon in settings. temporary use a different desktop and deactivate it or ssh with X from another machine with another or pre 2.22 desktop environment.
After some time and more trouble with other tools (xrandr and gparted), the issue is related to Wayland, which seems to be default for Gnome 2.22, so just change to XOrg on login and it is fine.

This seems to be related to your setup. I am not a developer for JDownloader. Please contact the guys from the JDownloader Team on their website. the package cannot get out of date, because it is always using the latest version

Does not work anymore:

It seems that JDownloader crashed and did not terminate correctly.

i was just about to install jdownloader2 via this package on my brothers pc. Installation went well, but when i wanted to run jdownloader, i got a message about a broken/invalid JDownloader.jar. On investigating this issue i found, that on commit of the JDownloader executable some lines were removed.

these lines inter alia contain:

if [ ! -f "JDownloader.jar" ]; then
wget -O JDownloader.jar

In the newer versions of the package the installer therefore seems to not download jdownloader anymore. After restoring the pre-commit-version of the JDownloader file, jdownloader startet normally, so this should be fixed :S

@ot_wtf: ACK. Inserted.

phantomjs as an optdepend would be nice.
