[request] thinkorswim desktop app (java/jre required) by TD Ameritrade

There is a decent java based desktop app but it requires java (oracle 11+) and has a bash script for installation. It would be better as an aur package.

Linux users

thinkorswim requires Zulu OpenJDK 8 to run, general installation instructions can be found on the Zulu website.

            Once Zulu OpenJDK8 is installed, ensure it is set as the default Java VM using the steps specific to your Linux Distribution After ensuring Zulu OpenJDK8 is the default with the “java –version” command in a shell/terminal, continue with the installation instructions below:


        1. Click "Install thinkorswim" to download the thinkorswim installer to a directory on your PC.
    2. After downloading open a shell and CD to the directory where you downloaded the installer.
    3. At the prompt type: sh ./thinkorswim_installer.sh


A more in-depth guide for the Ubuntu, Linux Mint and Debian distributions is available on The Learning Center.


Note: Clients intending to run thinkorswim on Linux, Solaris or other Unix variants, manual updates and tuning may be required, we have no official support for configuring these operating systems.

I asked similar questions last summer. I was told that Thinkorswim would just use the regular Java that is on Arch. I tried it, and it worked just fine.

By reading the wiki...

Chovy, please read https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=254221 .

It is entirely about thinkorswim, has links to wikipages etc .


Disliking systemd intensely, but not satisfied with alternatives so focusing on taming systemd.
