@sfncmp1729 I'll have a look at creating a PKGBUILD for the Wolfram Engine soon. I'll have to play around with it and make sure it works first which might take a day or two, but hopefully by the end of this weekend I should have something up!

Hi! A free version of the Wolfram Engine for developers has been released ( Just wondering, would it be possible to adapt this PKGBUILD for it?

Yes, I didn't notice that I was out of space, thank you.

@RunAndTumble did you make sure there was enough disk space available? It seems like Mathematica did not complete installing all the components. Do you have any other error messages arising before this?

RunAndTumble commented on 2019-04-29 14:46

This is odd, now, with the latest script I get this:

-> Errors related to 'xdg-icon-resource' and 'xdg-desktop-menu' are to be expected during Mathematica's installation. -> Fixing symbolic links /run/media/user/misc/inst/mathematica/mathematica/PKGBUILD: line 123: cd: /run/media/user/misc/inst/mathematica/mathematica/pkg/mathematica/opt/Mathematica/Executables: No such file or directory ==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package().

@JP-Ellis thanks for the quick answer. If someone is wondering where to find the script, I found mine on my Wolfram User Portal.

JP-Ellis commented on 2019-04-29 08:54

@Icemole Unfortunately, there are (afaik) no publicly available download links for Mathematica. As a result, you must download manually and place it in the same directory as the PKGBUILD.

Hey, when executing makepkg I'm getting "ERROR: was not found in the compilation directory, and it is not an URL address". It's right after sources are received. What I did was just downloading the snapshot and executing makepkg. Any ideas as to what's happening?

@rvlobato In my experience, Mathematica doesn't support HiDPI screens all that well, especially in pop-up windows. I have not found any workaround myself other than manually resizing the window.

Hi, I just have installed, but when the licence agreement appears, I cannot see the button to accept at window's end, it is cutted in the middle. My screen is HiDPI, I have tried to change the resolution and the scale unsuccessfully. Any suggestion?
