Chris Bowditch commented on FOP-2834:

I've re-classified this as an improvement as it was never intended for FOP's 
scripts to support MSYS2 out of the box

> Patch for support to launch fop command from the MSYS2/MINGW bash on Windows

>                 Key: FOP-2834
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FOP-2834
>             Project: FOP
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: unqualified
>    Affects Versions: 2.3
>         Environment: Windows 7/10 with MSYS2 (www.msys2.org)
>            Reporter: Gerrit Albrecht
>            Priority: Minor
>              Labels: FOP, MSYS
>             Fix For: 2.3
>         Attachments: fop-2.3-msys2.patch
>   Original Estimate: 5m
>  Remaining Estimate: 5m
> When using the fop 2.3 binary download with a MSYS2 shell, the fop command in 
> the main directory fails because it does not know anything about MSYS2. Same 
> problem exists after running fop from a MINGW32/64 bash. The fop.bat worked 
> out of the box but would need cmd.exe.
> The patch (for fop 1.0) is from here: 
> [https://gist.github.com/lammermann/1307565]
> My patch enables MSYS2 too (MSYS2 uses different uname's for its shells) and 
> targets version 2.3.
> To test it you need a JAVA_HOME env variable which leads to a JRE (tested 
> with jre1.8.0_192) and you have to add $JAVA_HOME/bin and fop-2.3/fop to the 
> PATH variable.
