Application Icons

Java applications do not show icons correctly. I'm using gnome (also tried with xfce). When the application is launched the icon specified in the .desktop file is not what's displayed in the dock or on the toolbar. This is something that only happens with Java applications. I've been trying to research this but haven't really come up with any good solutions yet. I think it has something to do with the fact that Java applications are putting code into a different process and running in the JVM? TheChickenMan (talk) 16:16, 18 April 2019 (UTC)Reply

JRE/JDK Conflict

Should there be a warning on this page about the conflict as of OpenJDK/JRE 21? SmilingTexan (talk) 19:08, 7 November 2023 (UTC)Reply

IMO no, since this is a one-time occurrence. Such warnings should be at the Arch Linux frontpage, and indeed are in this case, too. If the information was here in the wiki, it would be outdated very soon and would prompt for removal. This is not a news page but for information which is useful in the long run.

I somewhat disagree in the sentiment of my last comment - it seems like the description of the packages are outdated. They should be updated indeed. Wild Penguin (talk) 11:11, 8 November 2023 (UTC)Reply
Hmm it seems like the older versions of Java packages (<21) are not affected by the conflicts. So some nice refactoring of the page / descriptions are needed. Wild Penguin (talk) 11:23, 8 November 2023 (UTC)Reply
