Hi Stanislav,

Yes, it's offering to do that, but wouldn't that be for me as a user?
Given the AUR exists, I'd prefer to have that installed to give the
benefit for all users, and for all programs that would use mariadb-jdbc.

DBeaver offers Database → Driver Manager → MariaDB and I can then get
Information on the existing org.mariadb.jdbc:... library, but I haven't
worked out how to Add File, or similar to have it use
/usr/share/java/mariadb-jdbc/mariadb-java-client.jar instead.
But that's a question more for the dbeaver chaps.

It's the Arch package and the AUR package that I'm trying to get to play
together, and then the wiki can be updated.

Cheers, Ralph.
