Hi mate, this package is quite outdated (version 19.7 is out). Wouldn't it be prudent to add me as a co-maintainer, so instead of constantly flagging this package to let you know it's out of date I can merely bump it for you?

Will take a look at it, probably tonight. Update also comming tonight (probably)

I have created a ticket upstream asking for an improvement to the desktop config files of Marvin ( In case something unexpected occurs to that ticket here's my suggested MarvinSketch desktop config file:

!/usr/bin/env xdg-open

[Desktop Entry]



Exec=/bin/sh "/opt/chemaxon/marvinsuite/MarvinSketch" %f




Note how the Exec line now takes a file argument, so you can use Marvin to open a file, which I have confirmed it is capable of doing with this command. The MimeType line gives it support for opening a variety of chemical file formats. The Categories line places it into these categories in application menus. Of course, adding the StartupWMClass=com-install4j-runtime-launcher-UnixLauncher line present in the desktop config file provided by this AUR package mightn't hurt either. I'm surprised there's no MarvinView desktop config file provided by this AUR package.

Here you have a new PKGBUILD for the latest version (17.21.0), I tested and work fine:

pkgdesc="Intuitive applications and API for chemical sketching, visualization and data exploration"

package() {
install -Dm755 MarvinSketch.desktop ${pkgdir}/usr/share/applications/MarvinSketch.desktop

cp -R opt ${pkgdir}/opt

install -Dm644 opt/chemaxon/marvinsuite/.install4j/MarvinSketch.png ${pkgdir}/usr/share/pixmaps/marvin-sketch.png
install -Dm644 marvin-sketch-symbolic.svg ${pkgdir}/usr/share/pixmaps/marvin-sketch-symbolic.svg

@Mornielome Since I'm no longer using Arch Linux on my laptop, I may not update this pkg manually in time. But I can push an auto update script on my server next week if no one take responsibility for this package.

@catara @fusion809 Well, the package seems to be orphaned and @c0ldcat doesn't seem to be responding. Would one of you be so kind and take responsibillity for the package?
If absolutely nobody is able to, I would be willing to give it a try (but I have no experience in packaging)

I could also take responsibility for this package, I already have written a fresh PKGBUILD with some changes (new logo, sha256sums, version 17.14.0, include source link as suggested by @Zirkelite), but I should not make a duplicate as stated in submission guidelines (

fusion809 commented on 2017-06-27 11:24

@coldcat^ I'd be willing to take responsibility for this package if you would be willing to let me.

Zirkelite commented on 2017-02-11 14:44

As a note, it seems that it is possible to use the following as a source instead of having to sign up in their website:$pkgver/Marvin_linux_$pkgver.rpm

looks like jre8-openjdk should be aslo in Dependencies list. Installation only with "java-runtime-common" does not work.
