@Zorn That worked, thanks a lot.

@airaqi: The problem is that, probably in the last hours, Christian Schenk has modified some sources on GitHub (a few days ago everything worked fine). The current md5sum of miktex-23.10.tar.gz is 95ec540a81562b64c2dc97fd173307b9 and not 8c91a0e6d8e22ed346f41cbd47632e0a. To solve the problem you need to download the PKGBUILD, modify md5sum inside it, build the package with makepkg by installing the necessary dependencies by hand. Sorry, no need to install the necessary dependencies by hand; is sufficient to use

makepkg -i -c -r -s

after editing PKGBUILD

Download fails for the 23.10 update with error:

Because the executable files of miktex were not linked to common directories, I created the 'miktex-fix' package to solve this problem.

No graphical sudo frontend is available. Please install 'pkexec', 'kdesu' (KDE) or 'gksu' (Gnome). Alternatively, you can enter 'sudo miktex-console --admin' in a terminal window.

I'm having the same problem someone else had before.

I'm using KDE and kdesu is installed.

sudo miktex-console --admin
[sudo] password for jolitp:
sudo: miktex-console: command not found

Anyone has any idea on how to fix it?

Got biber: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory, fixed by installing core/libxcrypt-compat

@Sven I come across build errors when >j2. Could you give it a try?

Sven commented on 2022-07-28 19:09 (UTC)

Please don't hardcode -j2 in PKGBUILD. There's MAKEFLAGS in /etc/makepkg.conf. Also, I have 12 cores and 24 threads. My CPU is bored.

Looks like current binaries are using the wrong versions of icu and log4cxx.

miktex-console: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
miktex-console: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
# and so on

Use miktex-git to link the correct libraries, until newer binaries are released.


I still need to build log4cxx 12, here's my PKGBUILD.
