@antoniovazquez when do you get this? I can get an error when compiling with XC32 but the actual error comes from xclm in xc32, not the one in mplabx.

XCLM seems to be trying to get root permissions but not achieving it thus printing the following error:

⇢ xclm -status

Microchip XC License Manager Version: 2.22

XCLM: Failed to elevate privilege - is the XCLM binary setuid-root?

@Plude Thanks, I've uploaded lib32-fakechroot to the AUR and updated this package accordingly

Plude commented on 2017-11-30 21:03 for this file- fakechroot-i686.pkg.tar.xz result i a 404, so it is not possible to install the package anymore.

I can confirm the Segger J-Link is working perfectly with the latest version.

Thanks for all your effort!

@danwood76: they seem to have fixed the reference to libjlinkpic32 in, so I have removed the workaround. Let me know if it doesn't work

The way of setting the links in 3.65-2 worked fine.
I re-installed the packages and the debugger works properly.

Have you seen the debugger getting in and out with udevadm monitor?

It could be some permissions.

@biiiep: Strange, I'm pretty sure I fixed this in pkgrel 2 (I also checked all package files for broken symlinks).
Are you positive this is the one you tried?

$ pacman -Qi microchip-mplabx-bin | grep Version
Version : 3.65-2

$ pacman -Qql microchip-mplabx-bin | while read line; do [[ -h $line ]] && echo -n "$line -> " && realpath $line ; done
/etc/.mplab_ide/mchplinusbdevice -> /opt/microchip/mplabcomm/v3.25.01/lib/mchplinusbdevice
/opt/microchip/mplabx/v3.65/mplab_ide/etc/mplab_ide.conf -> /etc/mplab_ide.conf
/usr/bin/mdb -> /opt/microchip/mplabx/v3.65/mplab_ide/bin/
/usr/bin/mplab_ide -> /opt/microchip/mplabx/v3.65/mplab_ide/bin/mplab_ide

/usr/lib/ -> /opt/microchip/mplabcomm/v3.25.01/lib/
/usr/lib/ -> /opt/microchip/mplabcomm/v3.25.01/lib/

Let me know if you have different results

Hey Mickael9,

used your packages from a clean install, but ended up with a not-working programmer. I think the symlinks are not properly created after your "hack".

After setting the mplabcomm version again manually things were working fine.

@methril: Thanks, I fixed the issue in another way (since I'm too lazy to update the MPLABCOMM version manually every time :P). Let me know if you encounter issues.
