@JP-Undercover The issue you have is most likely because you are running out of space. Unfortunately, Mathematica's installer doesn't check for available space and if your drive fills up, Mathematica simply doesn't install create all the files (hence why wolframscript is missing). With the recent updates, I think you'll actually need more than 18GiB (I think the latest version needs 26.4GiB of free space unpack, install and then re-pack everything).

@JP-Ellis i have at least 18GB avalible on my system, i'm trying to edit the PKGBUILD by using yay --editmenu mathematica but it's not working. I've deleted all the cache and tried again, same error shows up, i'm trying to install normally by simply using yay -S mathematica.

EDIT: Installing using yay -S mathematica shows that i in fact don't have enough space, disregard what i said it turns out it was just me being incompetent, thanks for the tip!

@JP-Undercover Please make sure the directory in which the package archive is being built has enough space.

It shouldn't be installed in your actual system, but is taking up a lot of space in /home/undercover/.cache/yay/mathematica/ in your case.

Installing this package on Manjaro ended up with this:

Installation failed. See

  -> Errors related to 'xdg-icon-resource' and 'xdg-desktop-menu' are to be expected during Mathematica's installation.
  -> Fixing symbolic links
rm: cannot remove 'wolframscript': No such file or directory

The file InstallErrors is empty.

Any news about the Wolfram Engine AUR package?

JP-Ellis commented on 2019-06-09 00:28

@bryango Thanks! I've updated the PKGBUILD. Note that I have not updated the release number as this is such a minor change and most people will get this at the next update.

@JP-Ellis Adding StartupWMClass=Mathematica to the desktop file will greatly improve the window management experience (e.g. the window will now use themed icons set in the system). Strongly recommended!

@dareme7 All the AUR packages always assume that the base and base-devel groups are installed (and sed is in fact a member of both... indicating that somehow you don't even have the base group installed which contains essential software for Linux systems).

dareme7 commented on 2019-06-01 14:47

This package is missing sed as a dependancy, it won't start otherwise.

@JP-Ellis Thanks for your work!
