Update to Mathematica 11.3.0

Summary of new features:

Release 2 The second release of 11.3.0 removes various libraries which are automatically included in Mathematica so that Mathematica falls back on the system version. This was done in order to address an incompatibility in a recent system library update. I have been using this release for a while with no issue, but as usual let me know if any issue comes up.

In particular, portaudio may be required (though is not necessary is you only run Mathematica from the command line)

Release 3 Update reflects the new release of 11.3.0 by Wolfram. I could not find release notes (probably a minor bug fix release).

I get a bsdtar error when installing with trizen, right after the install script finishes. It seems that a file 'data.tar.gz' is missing.

I only own Mathematica 11.0.1, so i tried renaming the installer and skipping validity checks. this did of course not work. i am a newbie, so i don't know how to get the appropriate older version. I am using yay and the InstallErrors file sayed the following:

xdg-icon-resource: No writable system icon directory found.

xdg-icon-resource: No writable system icon directory found.

mkdir: cannot create directory '/applications-merged': Permission denied

xdg-desktop-menu: No writable system menu directory found.

Removing breaks Encrypt and Decrypt. The examples in the documentation don't work when is removed. Please remove the libcrypto line from duplicate-libs.txt. Maybe removing so many libraries is dangerous? What's the motivation for removing so many?

@lol-md5 portaudio is already an optional dependency.

lol-md5 commented on 2018-10-23 22:34

@JP-Ellis, would you mind adding portaudio to the optional deps?

lol-md5 commented on 2018-10-23 22:04

@JP-Ellis, yep, disk space was the issue. Man, this is such bloated software.

JP-Ellis commented on 2018-10-22 23:36

@lol-md5 it appears you have an issue with running out of space. Do you have about 10GiB of free space? Can you try building to package using makepkg?

I'm having trouble installing this.

Installation failed. See

What should I do? I need this for school.

@ucb Your best bet with Mathematica is to download the snapshot of the PKGBUILD in some directory and have the installer in the same directory, and then building everything using makepkg. I'm not familiar with pakku, but most likely what is happening is that pakku is downloading the PKGBUILD into some other directory (something like ~/.cache/pakku/mathematica or $TMPDIR/pakku/mathematica) and then running makepkg in there (which doesn't have the .sh installer and thus makepkg fails).

Newbie here:

Can somebody tell me what is the 'startdir' of the installer? I executed the installer using pakku from my download dir where the .sh resides but the installer couldn't find it. I also tried to edit the source line to point to the download dir so far to no avail.

Thanks in advance!
