It wouldn't be bad if you could edit this with local:// "protocol" instead of the unsupported file://

Thanks someonerandom and kjslag, downgrading worked very well. No problems installing the package.

If you can't install due to the gzip-1.7 error, you could downgrade gzip by downloading and installing gzip-1.6 from

@someonerandom I installed yesterday Arch Linux with KDE Desktop and I can't install Mathematica. I have the problem you describe. I don't know how to apply the patch you refer. How I will install Mathematica (or the patch)?

Thanks in advance.

If someone recently wants to build this package, keep away from gzip-1.7-1:

gzip: write error: Bad file descriptor
expr: syntax error
Critical Failure in CheckSpace_()
Unix/Installer/MathInstaller: line 3484: [: =: unary operator expected
Unix/Installer/MathInstaller: line 3488: [: =: unary operator expected
Unix/Installer/MathInstaller: line 3484: [: =: unary operator expected
Unix/Installer/MathInstaller: line 3488: [: =: unary operator expected

This is only fixed at git at the moment:

@chrisbdaemon: Yes, they keep renaming their desktop files... :/

Also, the xdg-icon-resource errors from 10.3.1 are back. (It was temporarily fixed in 10.4.0.) Luckily, these errors appear to be harmless. I emailed Wolfram about it again.

Has anyone had success installing 10.4.1? I changed the pkgver and the md5 hashsum and the installation fails. No real information on why either.

Update: Found the problem, wolfram-mathematica10.desktop is now wolfram-mathematica.desktop

yes it works, we are using MathLM network license manager and have no problem activating

I hope so. However, I haven't managed to successfully activate Mathematica 10.4 yet. Neither the online nor offline password generator have worked for me, and I'm still discussing with tech support. If someone confirms that 10.4 does indeed work on Arch, I'll update the package. You can test by changing the pkgver line near the top of the PKGBUILD, and then build using
makepkg --skipinteg
