Hello everybody! Here my experience about the latest version of Oracle JDK8 upgrade: jdk8-8u231-linux-x64.tar.gz
Everybody with ArchLinux know that Oracle JDK upgrade is not possible just using pacman, because Oracle ask for authentication since a while. So, I downloaded the right version for my device from Oracle JDK official.
To install the updated package I downloaded in ~/Downloads the AUR package jdk8.tar.gz. So, I did the untar:
cd into the just created directory and check PKGBUILD file. So proceed with the installation:
At this point a problem raised up to my terminal:
Usually there is problems with my ~/Downloads directory, this time I did not found my mistake. So, looking better at the PKGBUILD I found it takes the source file using xdg-user-dirs. I have never setup my XDG directories!
To setup the XDG user directories follow the official XDG Wiki.
NB: if even in this way the installation fails, try to change the PKGBUILD file at the line 63 as follow (delete the slash):
I hope my experience could help others! GWH!!!
