I get this msg when install script is running:

Installation failed. See
~/AUR/mathematica/pkg/mathematica/opt/Mathematica/InstallErrors.

This file contains this warnings:

This happens in Gnome 3, I suspect it may have to do with DE integration (icons of .nb files in nautilus, etc). This have been commented by @qft already. Maybe PKGBUILD could it be upgraded to improve that. Thank you so much.

PKGBUILD for 11.0.1: https://gist.github.com/JP-Ellis/1e9637386bb1f2520e107a71058d79e4

@Light2Yellow Mathematica isn't free. You need to purchase it, and then download Mathematica_11.0.0_LINUX.sh from their website and put it in the build directory.

==> ERROR: Mathematica_11.0.0_LINUX.sh was not found in the build directory and is not a URL.
==> ERROR: Makepkg was unable to build mathematica.

@qft Yes, I know. I think that happens to everyone. The Mathematica installer is ignoring the fact that it's not being installed by root. Wolfram needs to fix this. But in the meantime, the package still works just fine.

When I run makepkg with this PKGBUILD, I always see the following error message:

Installation failed. See
/home/qft/build/mathematica/pkg/mathematica/opt/Mathematica/InstallErrors.

And the file /opt/Mathematica/InstallErrors is not removed from the final package.

The installation is fine, the package made by makepkg should work. This is just a bug in the Mathematica installer. I'll bug Wolfram about it again.

Edit: I have an open case [CASE:3493135] with Wolfram support regarding the issue. It was actually fixed in 10.4.0, but came back again in 10.4.1.

Latest Mathematica 11 fails to install with the following error:

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.

The installation script bypasses fakeroot and tries to write to the root directory directly...

I see. I added mesa-demos.

JP-Ellis commented on 2016-07-25 05:25

If glxinfo isn't available, Mathematica informs that glxinfo is required for "optimized graphics capabilities" (you need to launch Mathematica from the command line to see the warning); I don't know anything more beyond that.

I think that either mesa-demos and glxinfo are fine. I suggested glxinfo since Mathematica is already an AUR package and doesn't keep the extra content for the demos, but since mesa-demos is an Extra and only 7MB, I think it's also fine to list mesa-demos as the optional dependency.
