OK, this is what I get when I try to install v12.0 using the old script:

-> Setting up WolframScript bsdtar: Error opening archive: Failed to open '/run/media/user/misc/mathematica/pkg/mathematica/opt/Mathematica/SystemFiles/Installation/wolframscript_1.2.0-36_amd64.deb'

@JP-Ellis @miro86 I managed to get rid of the error. The problem was, that there was a $ in front of the directory name that the cd in line 120 was supposed to change to. Removing this fixed this specific bug. I also changed the directory to point to the one where my wolframscript was. I am actually running manjaro, so maybe the's why it doesn't work for me... Now i only have a bug, saying, that my fakeroot doesn't work and it cannot create or remove directories. I hope this may have helped.

@JP-Ellis @hzhangxyz espeak should not be a dependency of Mathematica. Like I mentioned in one of the previous comment, this error only happens because the file '/opt/Mathematica/SystemFiles/Libraries/Linux-x86-64/' that ships with Mathematica is wrongly removed via the duplicate-libs.txt file. If you modify duplicate-libs.txt and do not remove so many libraries that ship with Mathematica, then there is no need to make up for these included libraries with external dependencies.

@PlaidPenguin @miro86 I still have no idea how this error happens, and I am unable to replicate it. I have installed Mathematica without error on several different machines without issue, so I don't even know where to start with this bug.

@hzhangxyz This is already a optional dependency. I do not have everything included as compulsory dependencies because most people will only use a subset of what Mathematica offers.

@JP-Ellis I also get the same error as miro86 and mpr. Has someone found a solution to this problem?

I didn't install espeak so mathematica report error since the library has already been removed via duplicate-libs.txt

run pacman -Foq awk -F / '{print "/usr/lib/"$7}' duplicate-libs.txt | sort | uniq and get:

community/espeak community/libpng12 community/portaudio core/glib2 core/gmp core/libffi core/libssh2 core/openssl-1.0 core/zlib extra/cairo extra/freetype2 extra/glu extra/harfbuzz extra/openmp extra/pango extra/pixman

I think this should be put into depend list

I get a similar error as miro86. There's no xterm error but I do get the error of line 120. Did you manage to fix it @miro86?

JP-Ellis commented on 2019-01-22 03:18

@miro86 Unfortunately, I really don't know what could be the cause of your issue as I have never encountered it. Have you tried using a different terminal by any chance? Are you using an AUR helper and having you tried using makepkg? Sorry I can't be of more help.

@JP-Ellis: the installer seems to work, it loads then asks for the installation directory. Is there a solution with regards to xterm?

JP-Ellis commented on 2019-01-18 03:02

@miro86 Sorry for the late reply. I'm not entirely sure why you are receiving this error; but it seems like the Mathematica installer itself isn't working? Have you tried running the installer manually (just to see if it loads). I'm also wondering whether this is an issue with xterm.
