I can look into adding OPLIDE with the next CPLEX release where I have to make PKGBUILD changes anyway (as I'm expecting Python 3.7 support with that). While your approach does reliably install everyting, I'd rather not use /opt with this package.

After installing this package, I noticed that it does a "reduced" install, e.g. it does not install OPLIDE which is what I am interested in.

I decided to try to go for a more as-is install and changed all the copy commands in package() to:

mkdir -p "$pkgdir/opt/ibm/ILOG/CPLEX"
cp -R "." "$pkgdir/opt/ibm/ILOG/CPLEX/"

Except a few warnings, so far it seems to work, e.g. OPLIDE launches. I haven't had a chance to play too much with it yet, I will update if I have some improvement.

EDIT: If anyone is interested, this is the PKGBUILD I ended up using in the end to to get an unmodified, no warnings, install:

EDIT: With /usr/bin shortcuts for some tools to avoid having to type:

Hello Luiz0tavio, the cplex installer .bin file is not available for download without logging in on the IBM website. As the PKGBUILD says: "You need to manually download the IBM ILOG CPLEX Optimization Studio installer and place it into the same directory as this PKGBUILD, before you proceed."
