@Excaliber You need to have the PKGBUILD and the Mathematica installer in the same directory (a symlink works too).

I have the file Mathematica_11.2.0_LINUX.sh in my home folder but i still have the error:
==> ERROR: Mathematica_11.2.0_LINUX.sh was not found in the build directory and is not a URL.
thanks for the support!

@johnramsden did you run out of disk space by chance?

JP-Ellis commented on 2017-09-19 03:27

@johnramsden Mathematica's installation error log should have just errors to do with xdg (`xdg-icon-resource`, `xdg-desktop-menu`, etc.) and these are expected. I do not know what is causing the errors from `tar` though.

Did the `Mathematica_11.2.0_LINUX.sh` pass the checksums?

I keep getting the following error on install. I had 11.1.x installed before and didn't get this error:

Installation failed. See
/home/john/.cache/mm/mathematica/pkg/mathematica/opt/Mathematica/InstallErrors.

@alge Mathematica is a paid, proprietary software and must be downloaded separately.

Trying to get mathematica thru AUR. Getting this error:

@bred These errors are (unfortunately) normal. The Mathematica install script tries to install certain desktop files (icons, .desktop) to the system which it shouldn't, and since makepkg isn't run with sudo access, the script (correctly) fails to install them. The PKGBUILD handles these files fine afterwards. As far as I know, there is no way to avoid this.

As long as the errors are only relating to xdg-..., then everything's fine.
