With 13.1, Wolfram now offers two bundles for Mathematica: one with offline docs included, and one which relies on online docs. I have created corresponding version of the Mathematica package in the AUR:

  • mathematica: As this package has historically always included offline docs, it will continue to do so now. As of 13.1.0, the package takes up around 14.1GiB with all documentation.
  • mathematica-light: For those people who want a small package and/or want to use online docs, I have created this package which uses Wolfram's online-docs bundling of Mathematica. As of 13.1.0, the light version takes up around 6.9GiB.

I'm leaving a comment because I do this once a year or less, and I remember that before I had to download a file from Wolfram's website. Now, it seems that as long as you're logged in beforehand via your browser, it does everything for you, which is pretty neat!

MathInstaller is a bash script, so it is better to run it directly with bash (my sh was not symlinked to bash, which resulted in 3634 Syntax error: Bad for loop variable). Also, I think there are now some outdated comments before prepare().

Additionally, I include a patch which makes it easier to change the "installation directory" (as of now, it is hardcoded at many places to be /opt/Mathematica).

Patches can be found in this gist.

Edit: whoops, this was meant in general for the mathematica package, somehow I posted it first in here..

For me the correct name is wolfram-mathematica13

@tornado99 I don't personally use KDE, but if you know what change would be required, let me know and I can incorporate it into the PKGBUILD.

tornado99 commented on 2023-01-24 14:26 (UTC)

Mathematica has a generic icon when launched in KDE, instead of the red star. Can this be fixed e.g. by moving icon files?
