@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.

I'm getting the following error:

==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package().

I've got around 27GB free space in my home directory, so the problem seems to be somewhere else.

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.
